Sophie Morgan (36) is a British TV presenter, author, disability advocate, artist, and keen adventurer living in London.
In 2003, Sophie, then eighteen, was paralysed from the chest down in a car crash and since the day she left hospital, as a permanent wheelchair user, she’s worked tirelessly to change perceptions of disability. Today, she is one of the most influential disabled leaders in the country.
As one of the only female TV presenters with a physical disability worldwide, Sophie is already radically redefining representation of disability – most recently joining ITV’s Loose Women as a guest-panellist. She is best known for presenting the London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. Sophie also fronted her own Channel 4 series Living Wild: How to Change your Life and led ground-breaking documentaries such as Dispatches and Unreported World. Sophie is also proud to be a content board member for Ofcom, the UK’s regulatory body for broadcasting.
Her debut book Driving Forwards is set to be published in March 2022 – an unflinchingly honest and powerful memoir detailing her journey from life-changing accident to leading female presenter.
