An award-winning disability advocate, paralysed in a car crash when she was 18. 

Today, Sophie Morgan is one of the first  female TV presenters in the world with a physical disability.

Sophie, 36, is radically changing representation of disability on television - 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, led ground-breaking documentaries such as Dispatches and Unreported World and hosted the consumer series Luxury for Less. 

Off screen and on the airwaves, Sophie hosts and is executive producer of the podcast Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality. Featuring stimulating conversations around key issues surrounding disability, the series sets new standards for how we think about and discuss the subject.
Her incredible journey from a life-changing accident to one of the most influential disabled leaders in the country, will see Sophie publish her debut book, Driving Forwards in March 2022. A strikingly honest, unflinching, and powerful memoir, Driving Forwards details the events of Sophie’s life so far, but it is far from your typical story of triumph after tragedy. The book explores how she’s managed to adapt to her situation and strives to illustrate how adversity is an opportunity to find empowerment, purpose, and resilience. Through sharing her story, Sophie aims to help and inspire others to overcome impossible obstacles no matter their situation, but the book doesn’t hold back the truth about the reality of living with paralysis as a young woman in an ableist world. Identity, purpose, sex, love, meaning and motivation are all themes that Sophie’s book delves into, taking readers on ground-breaking journey like no other.
Outside of broadcasting and publishing, Sophie is a campaigner, consultant and ambassador for various organisations and charities across the globe. For Human Rights Watch based in New York, she’s a member of the Special Advisory Committee, while for Leonard Cheshire Sophie is a Global Ambassador for Women’s Rights and Inclusive Education. Sophie is a Patron for Scope and Back Up, both of which are charities working to make society more equal for the disabled.
Global Brand ambassador for Toyota GB and CanAm, Sophie is a passionate adventurer who believes that the right vehicle can transform your world. 

Sophie has been voted in the Top 10 of the most influential people with a disability in the UK.


Driving Forwards will be published in hardback, e-book and audio on 17th March 2022
On the precipice of starting her adult life, aged 18, Sophie, a rebellious and incorrigible wild child, crashed her car and was instantly paralysed from the chest down. Rushed to hospital, everything she had dreamed for her life was instantly forgotten and her journey to rediscover herself and build a different life began. But being told she would never walk again would come to be the least of her concerns.
