“To even be in a position to do this is something I’ll never truly believe and never stop being thankful for. But personally for me, to see another family have some relief and happiness in their life that they deserved because they have been through so much is one of the most incredible feelings in the world.”

Sophie, who lives with her husband Jamie, 42, their two children Ronnie and Lennie and cocker spaniel Henry, has divided opinion with the seemingly kind act.

“That’s nice of her to lend her house to someone,” one Twitter user said.

Another wrote: “What a kind & thoughtful woman ”

A third added: “This story isn’t as fabulous as you make it out to be. You are made to think that she’s let some random homeless stranger move in rent free. Instead it’s just her sister ( who could be homeless and with not a pot to p*** in ).”
