‘Now it’s on the green zone, I’m off. One way flight, don’t know when I’ll be returning. I’m just gonna be living my best life.’
Sophie continued: ‘Hopefully in the next year will be the time I do settle and find someone but for now, I’m just embracing being single.
‘I’ve been in lockdown, it has been tough for single people, as well as every one else but I just feel like I’ve got to embrace it while I can.
‘You just don’t know. When it [love] happens to me and I meet that person trust me it’s all gonna be like BAM and I’m gonna think “s**t. I wish I went to that last rave.”‘

The Balearic Islands, which include Menorca, Majorca and Formentera, will be added to the UK’s green list on June 30, just in time for Sophie’s single girl getaway.
Reflecting on lockdown, Sophie admitted there were times that she envied her coupled up pals.
She said: ‘It wasn’t until the third lockdown that my mental health really got in a bit of a bad way.
‘I think what I started to do was to compare a lot to my friends and their lives – they’re all settling down and having babies and starting that next stage of life.
‘But I was just sitting in my living room on my own.’

On whether she felt ready to settle down, Sophie said: ‘Humans are on this earth to feel loved. Everyone wants to feel loved. It’s not like you want to be single forever.
‘Of course I want to be in a relationship and in love. That’s what we live for. Of course I want a family one day. But I think people have got to be sensitive asking that question.
‘I’ve got endometriosis, so I could potentially not be able to have that [a baby]. I think we definitely feel a lot more pressure being asked “when do you want to have a baby” when you get to your 30s.
Endometriosis is a condition resulting from endometrial tissue outside the uterus which causes pelvic pain and is often related to menstruation.
The condition affects women of all ages with some of the main symptoms being pelvic pain, period pain and pain during or after having sex.

Of her famous party days, the reality star added: ‘If I have a child now or if I meet someone, I’m glad that they’re meeting this version of us in my 30s rather than the wild crazy girl I was in my 20s.
‘If I meet someone, I know that they’re going to meet the best version of me, which is who I am now.’
Looking back on her experience of growing up in limelight, Sophie admitted: ‘There’s been a lot of curveballs – body shaming – it’s been very different and difficult at times but I do feel like I’ve overcome it.’
Changed woman: Sophie said she thinks she’s now the ‘best version of herself’ and is glad she could meet the one now rather than as the ‘wild crazy girl’ from her twenties
She continued: ‘I know that Love Island contestants have got so much support now from the channel and from ex Love Island people.
‘There’s a lot more support than there probably was a couple of years ago for us. But we got to come back series after series and have the same cast. So, we were really supportive of each other.’
Gushing about her relationship with her co-stars Charlotte Crosby, Holly Hagan and Marnie Simpson, she added: ‘Our friendship isn’t fake. We are really, genuinely, good friends. Best mates.
‘We are literally like sisters. We argue, we tell each other how it is, and we love each other at the same time. It’s a genuine friendship. That’s very rare that people get that these days.’
