Sophie Victoria Reade (born 18 May 1989 in Cheshire, England) won the tenth season of Big Brother UK on 4 September 2009. She is also a Playboy glamour model and has appeared in Hot Shots Calendar.
Reade won the tenth season of Big Brother in the United Kingdom, beating runner-up Siavash. Reade was announced the winner of the show by host Davina McCall. She received the highest percentage of votes for a winner on any Big Brother UK Series, beating fifth season-winner Nadia Almada's record, receiving 74.4 per cent of the final vote.
Reade changed her name by deed poll to Dogface, to become a house-mate during the show's first week. On Day 33 Big Brother told Reade that she had to remain silent until 2 am as punishment for discussing nominations; she failed to keep quiet and therefore faced the public vote. Reade had a romantic relationship with Kris in the House. On Day 39 she and Siavash were punished by Big Brother for talking about nominations, and told they were not allowed to swear before 3 pm; they both failed and faced eviction. On Day 72, as a special prize, Dogface (Reade) legally changed her name back to Sophie. Since Day 88, Sophie was the bookies' favourite to win. She left the house to huge cheers and a lively crowd chanting her name.
