Sophie Louise Anderton,[1] (born 14 May 1977[2] in Bristol, England)[2][3] is an English model and reality television personality.

Career[edit]

In 1996 Anderton appeared in the Gossard Glossies and Gossard Wonderbra "Girl in the grass" national advertising campaign shot by Herb Ritts, which included the strapline "Who said a woman couldn't get pleasure from something soft?"[4][5] The campaign attracted a record number of complaints (321) to the Advertising Standards Authority, none of which were upheld.[6][7]

Anderton has modeled for Gossard (1998),[8] the Flora London Marathon,[8] British Berries summer fruits (2006),[citation needed] Maxim,[citation needed] Peacocks[citation needed] and La Senza.[4]

In 2004, Anderton was a contestant on the fourth series of ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.[4][5][8][9][10] She appeared in the TV series Simply the Best[citation needed] and a celebrity edition of the UK version of Fear Factor.[4] In 2005, she appeared on the programme Cold Turkey, which documented her attempts to quit smoking cigarettes;[citation needed] she later became a representative for a smoking cessation program called QS7D (Quit Smoking in 7 Days).[4]

In 2006, Anderton was a contestant on ITV's Love Island.[5] In the same year, she appeared on Sky1's Cirque de Celebrité but withdrew after sustaining ligament damage.[11]

In August 2013, Anderton became a housemate on the twelfth series of Celebrity Big Brother.[3][12][13] She was eliminated from competition in an episode that aired on 3 September 2013.[10]

Personal life[edit]

From 2004 until 2007, Anderton was a Patron of the original Action on Addiction in London, a charity and addiction research center investigating drug and alcohol dependence.[14]

In 2006, she was diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder.[5] "I was wrongly diagnosed," she told the Belfast Telegraph in 2011.[5] "I had depression. They wrongly diagnosed me and put me on a bucket load of blood pills. It was absolutely bonkers."[5]

In June 2009, Anderton complained to police about dozens of text messages left on her mobile phone.[15] A man was soon charged with harassment[15] and, in March 2010, convicted.[16]

In an August 2013 interview, conducted just before she entered the house for her participation in Celebrity Big Brother 12, Anderton acknowledged past difficulties with substance abuse.[3]
