In a Radio 2000 interview, Sophie revealed that her weight loss happened when she was in a dark place due to depression. She said she only noticed her change when people posted her images on social media.

Sophie was upset that no one had come to her when she needed help. She feels that she learned a lot of important lessons during this time.
