In 2008, Sophie took a maternity leave to give birth to her third child and returned later in August of the same year. In 2009, she became a relief newsreader. She remained a relief news reporter until her debut as the presenter of “Watchdog Daily” in 2012. A year later she was presented a Doctorate of Arts by the City University of London. She covered large news stories such as The Royal Wedding and the London Olympics in 2012.


Sophie enjoys running, she ran the Great North Run in October 2008. She has also completed four other marathons including the London Marathon.

In 2008, she raised thousands of dollars for St. George’s Hospital to help purchase new neonatal equipment. She stated to the NHS Foundation Trust, “When I visited the neonatal unit this summer, it made me realize just how lucky I’ve been to have three big and healthy babies. The money I’ve raised will buy medical equipment, like an incubator, which they desperately need.”

Sophie’s passion for running and charity raising has led her to many sponsorships for her runs. She hopes to run many more marathons in the future to support her charities. She claims this has become her addiction on a You & Your’s BBC Radio 4 broadcast.
