And then she pinpointed that as the moment she knew she wouldn’t end up with Nick in the end.

“I can tell Nick likes me but I feel like I’m already not the one,” she read out on camera.

She also revisited the passage of writing from day 79 of filming – the finale.

After being dumped by Nick, Sophie said she cried in the car and was taken to a suite to chat with members of the crew, who told her someone wanted to see her.

“The door opens and it’s Britt,” she read from her diary. “She tells me some crazy news – ‘He didn’t pick me either’.”

“I’m dying, but we can’t stop laughing. We are so confused, hurt, angry, upset but somehow happy for both of us… Nick is gone and this journey is over.”

Sophie admitted to struggling with the aftermath of the show but said she wouldn’t take back her reality TV experience, saying it helped her find independence.
