Sofie Allsopp (born 1980) is a British television presenter.

Early life[edit]

Her parents are Charles Henry Allsopp, 6th Baron Hindlip, (born 1940) and Fiona Victoria Jean Atherley (née McGowan, born 1947). Sofie has two sisters: television presenter Kirstie Allsopp (born 1971) and Natasha (born 1986) and a brother, Henry (born 1973).[1][2] The designer and business woman Cath Kidston is her cousin.[3]

Career[edit]

Having previously worked as an estate agent and relocation agent in London, Allsopp temporarily stood in for her sister as the presenter of a special Location, Location, Location whilst Kirstie was on maternity leave[4] In this show, Hackney was voted as the worst place to live in the UK, which caused some controversy.[5][6]

In spring 2008, Allsopp began hosting the Canadian television show, The Unsellables, on HGTV (Canada). Her role on the show is to help people sell their "unsellable" homes.[2] The programme has since been broadcast on the U.S. HGTV and on the BBC in the UK, where Sofie is paired with fellow property expert John Rennie.

Personal life[edit]

Allsopp lives in Edinburgh with her husband, the writer Robert Fletcher, and their son Charlie.[7] She has a degree in History[2] and is a keen traveller, having journeyed through South America, Southeast Asia, Africa and Mongolia.[citation needed]

Allsopp had a double mastectomy in November 2010. Family members, including her mother and her maternal grandmother, have had breast cancer.[7]
