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% of the final vote.

Reade changed her name by deed poll to "Dogface" in order 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 a.m. as punishment for discussing nominations; she failed to keep quiet and therefore faced the public vote.[1] Reade had a romantic relationship with Kris in the House. On Day 39, she and Siavash were punished for talking about nominations by Big Brother who told them they were not allowed to swear before 3 p.m.; 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.

While in the Big Brother house, Reade put on over a stone in weight, ballooning from seven stone, 11 pounds (109 pounds) to nine stone (126 pounds), a 17-pound weight gain.

Personal Life[edit source | editbeta]Edit

Reade had a romantic relationship with Kris in the House. On Big Brother's Big Mouth: The Reunion, Reade announced she was not seeing Kris outside the house, saying "[she] could do better." Kris responded by saying "[he] had done better" and "had no complaints since leaving the house." On the same program, Reade revealed she had given £10,000 of her prize fund to Siavash for him to donate to charity and that she plans on moving to Leeds to live with fellow Big Brother 10 housemate Rodrigo Lopes. However, it has since been revealed the pair are now looking at moving closer to Sophie's home town by moving to Liverpool.

Reade has revealed that her bra-size is 30GG and that she has posed nude for Playboy UK. She also revealed a 2010 calendar before she entered the Big Brother house.
