Biography and career
Sophie Amanda Howard was born and raised in Southport, England to Steve and Tina Howard. 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. She attended Christ the King Catholic High School and was in the Salvation Army until she was 16. At 17 years-old, she became a stripper, 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![dead link][dead link]
Howard subsequently signed a contract with Loaded, resulting in a relationship advice column and a regular feature called "Sophie's Choice". As of 2006, Howard was signed to Nuts magazine for about 18 months. 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.
In 2009, Howard returned to Edge Hill University to study for a degree in mental health nursing. She retired from modelling in December 2011 in order to focus solely on her studies before returning to modelling again in March 2013.
