Sophie Habboo reveals VERY awkward message sent by fiancé Jamie Laing’s family member
Sophie Habboo has revealed she was left in tears after a rude message was sent about her by one of fiancé Jamie Laing’s relatives.
Speaking on the couple’s podcast, NearlyWeds, the MIC beauty, 28, shared how the unknown relative had sent 33-year-old Jamie’s mother Penny a jibe — with an unsuspecting Penny reading the text during the couple’s first meeting.
Sophie said: ‘Your sister-in-law’s sister sent Penny a message saying: ‘I’m so glad Jamie is okay with Strictly – let’s hope he gets a good partner and it can distract him from that awful Haribo- girl”.’
Oh dear: Sophie Habboo has revealed she was left in tears after a rude message was sent about her by one of fiancé Jamie Laing’s relatives
A clucking Jamie added: ‘and she read the whole thing, she hadn’t read it properly yet, and then she said ‘oh’.
“My sister’s face was blank and looking forward to it and Sophie went to the bathroom and cried!”
Earlier this year, Jamie revealed that people “can’t understand” how he managed to get his fiance Sophie, because she is “better than him in every way”.
The star made the confession during a chat on Lorraine where he also shared how “nervous” introducing the influencer was.
What do you say? During the couple’s podcast, AlmostWeds, the MIC beauty, 28, shared how the unknown relative had sent 33-year-old Jamie’s mother Penny a jibe — with an unsuspecting Penny reading the text during the couple’s first meeting.
The pair got engaged last year after a three-year romance, but recently admitted they won’t be showing the wedding at MIC because Jamie believes relationships have a better chance of surviving without the cameras.
He said of Lorraine about their relationship, “She’s better than me in every way, people look at me in the street, how did I do this.”
The couple recently launched a new podcast called AlmostWeds, in which they discuss their plans for the wedding that will take place abroad next spring.
He said: “Marriage is so intense and this is a fun way to capture it. We’re arguing about the podcast and it’s authentic.”
Hmm: Sophie said, ‘Your sister-in-law’s sister sent Penny a message saying ‘I’m so glad Jamie is getting along – let’s hope he gets a good partner and it can distract him from that terrible Haribo girl”‘

Jamie then said of the proposal: “It was the most nerve-racking thing in the world. I have this hotel with candles everywhere and I wrote letters and I went to the door and she read the letters because I was afraid I would say the wrong thing. But she did say yes.’
Sophie then broke in: ‘I knocked over the candles and then I started to cry, but it was such a happy day.’
Then she revealed some details from their wedding, with Jamie saying, ‘We have a custom perfume for today. I will come in with a cable car for the first dance and then do a solo cha cha and I will wear a white suit.
‘We want to do it abroad. It will be around this time next year.’
Elsewhere in the interview, they referred to their exclusive chat with MailOnline as saying they would not be filming the wedding.
The couple have turned down offers to film their wedding for a Made In Chelsea special – after the Strictly star left the E4 series to salvage their romance.
In their first interview together, the engaged couple reveal that they’ve decided not to turn their marriage into a reality spin-off show, as Jamie believes relationships have a better chance of surviving without the cameras.
Candy Kittens’ owner told MailOnline that reality TV is “hard on the soul” and after realizing he wanted to marry ex-colleague Sophie, he knew his departure from Made In Chelsea was inevitable.
Jamie revealed: ‘We’ve been asked to do a TV show, but it’s tough.
“I’ve been doing reality for so long and it’s hard on the soul. I don’t think TV is ever on your own terms, so unless you’re in control of those things, it’s pretty hard.
“It’s one of those things you have to decide whether you want to go back down the reality TV route or not.
‘When will it end?’: The couple have decided not to turn their marriage into a spin-off show because Jamie believes relationships have a better chance of surviving without the cameras
‘Once you’re married, what happens? Are we doing another show about getting married…when will it end? For now, I’ll park reality.’
In agreement with her husband-to-be, Sophie added: “It’s a day for us and our family and friends.”
Jamie, who proposed to Sophie with handwritten letters in December at the luxury Rosewood hotel in London, vowed he’s “done” with reality TV because he wants to protect his future marriage.
He added: “I left Made In Chelsea because I didn’t want my relationship with Sophie on camera. There were many other reasons, but that was the main one.
“I’ve seen so many relationships fail on reality TV shows, and I didn’t want this to happen.
“Relationships on TV shows are difficult because of the constant need for content. Relationships can be mundane, and you have a need to make things interesting, so everything gets more exaggerated and that’s hard.”
Now the Chelsea couple, who launched their new podcast AlmostWeds this week, are busy planning their wedding but have yet to set a date or book a venue after struggling with the Covid-19 backlog.
The big day is expertly arranged as Jamie and Sophie team up with a wedding planner and already have a guest list of 220, which includes Jamie’s former co-stars and childhood friends Caggie Dunlop, Hugo Taylor and Spencer Matthews, as well as his Strictly friend Giovanni Pernice.
