Sophia Atherley "Sofie" Allsopp (born 1980) is a British television presenter.

Early life[edit]

Her parents are Charles Henry Allsopp, 6th Baron Hindlip, (born 1940) and Fiona Victoria Jean Atherley (née McGowan, born 1947). Sofie has two sisters: television presenter Kirstie Allsopp (born 1971) and Natasha (born 1986) and a brother, Henry (born 1973).[1][2]

Designer and businesswoman Cath Kidston is her cousin.[3]

Career[edit]

Sofie has worked as real estate agent, sales and letting negotiator and relocation agent in Notting Hill, London. She had her own company, specialising in finding houses, managing moves and providing aftercare services to new home owners.[4][5] In 2006, temporarily replaced her sister Kirstie, as co-presenter of Location, Location, Location, while Kirstie was on maternity leave.[6] During this period, she presented an episode in which Hackney was voted as the worst place to live in the UK, which caused some controversy.[7][8][9]

In 2008, she began hosting the Canadian television show, The Unsellables, on HGTV (Canada). Her role on the show was to help people sell their "unsellable" homes.[2] The programme has since been broadcast on the U.S. HGTV and on the BBC in the UK, where Sofie is paired with property expert John Rennie.[citation needed]

She has a degree in Medieval History from The University of Edinburgh.[2][10]
