Sophie Howard (born 24 February
1983) is an English glamour model from Southport. She appears regularly on
Page Three and in men's magazines, such as Maxim, Nuts and Loaded. In
August 2005, Howard was voted 73rd in the FHM UK "100 Sexiest Women" poll.

Sophie Howard was born and raised in Southport, England. She attended
Christ the King Catholic High school and was in the Salvation Army until
she was 16. At 17, 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!"
Howard studied English and creative writing at university, later swapping
to marketing information systems. During this time, she signed to the IMM
modelling agency, and appeared in the magazine.
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 has been signed to Nuts magazine for about 18 months.
In 2006, Sophie's management of IMM 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, where she originally
pursued her degree studies, to study for a degree in mental health
Whilst studying at Sixth Form, Howard was diagnosed with Lupus
Erythematosus, a condition affecting the immune system.
