Sophie Howard (born 24 February 1983) is an English glamour model from Southport, England.[1][2] She appeared regularly on Page 3 and in men's magazines such as Maxim, Nuts and Loaded.[1] In August 2005, Howard was voted 73rd in the FHM UK "100 Sexiest Women" poll.[citation needed] In the 2006 poll, she rose to 68th place.[3]

Biography and career[edit]

Sophie Amanda Howard was born and raised in Southport, England to Steve and Tina Howard.[citation needed] She has often cited that her brothers Keith and Mark were a main influence on her upbringing when she was growing up Southport, and she later moved to Ellesmere Port.[citation needed] She attended Christ the King Catholic High School and was in the Salvation Army[4] until she was 16.[1] At 17 years-old, she became a stripper,[1] a "rubbish" one:

I'd go on the stage, dance around a bit, get my tits out, then get off. Well, with lapdancing, you had to put in three minutes, but if the guy was a bit minging, you made it last one-and-a-half. If they were hot, you'd do it all night! ... At that time of your life you need to start trying out new things and see where it takes you. You never know, maybe one day I'll go back to the uniform. Thinking about it, what I'm doing now is probably very blasphemous. Ah, He'll forgive me anyway![5][dead link][6][dead link]

Howard studied English at Edge Hill University.[1][4] During this time, she signed to the IMM modelling agency, and she appeared in the magazine.[citation needed]

Howard subsequently signed a contract with Loaded, resulting in a relationship advice column and a regular feature called "Sophie's Choice".[citation needed] As of 2006, Howard was signed to Nuts magazine for about 18 months.[citation needed] In 2006, Sophie's management of IMM also signed an exclusive, 12-month deal (for 2007) with Dennis Publishing for Sophie to frequently feature in Maxim and Bizarre.[citation needed]

In 2009, Howard returned to Edge Hill University to study for a degree in mental health nursing.[1][4] She retired from modelling in December 2011 in order to focus solely on her studies before returning to modelling again in March 2013.[citation needed]

Howard appears in the Hot Shots Calendar 2014.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Whilst studying at Sixth Form, Howard was diagnosed with Lupus Erythematosus,[1] a condition affecting the immune system.[8]
