Sophie was also a fierce ally to #queer people everywhere, and was #bisexual and #pansexual . The cause of her death has not been confirmed.
Her death comes just weeks after her partner, p0rn actor and former footballer #OliverSpedding also died.
In a tribute to Sophie, Rebecca wrote to say she was “devastated” by the news of her friend’s death.
“We shared some amazing times together and that’s how I’m going to remember her,” Rebecca wrote on Instagram.
“The bubbly, funny, kind hearted soul who was outrageous on the outside but also so gentle behind closed doors.
“We were very close, and we shared a crazy time together that was totally unique to us. That’s how I will remember her.
“This is so tragic but I know you are now at peace. I will always always love you and hold a special place in my heart.”
Sophie Anderson and #RebeccaMore filmed many videos together as The C*ck Destroyers, before they parted ways in 2021.

A clip posted to a Russian #Telegram account showed a police van outisde the Kinky Rouge #nightclub , where over 300 partygoers were detained before IDs were photographed by the police.
This comes after the Russian #SupremeCourt effectively banned the “International LGBT Social Movement” last week, labelling it an “extremist” organisation.
The police claim they raided the venues looking for drugs.
The #EuropeanUnion has already issued a statement in which it strongly condemned the decision of the Russian Supreme Court, claiming it is part of a “decades-long crackdown on #LGBTIQ persons unleashed under #PresidentPutin ”.

The “#WhatWasIMadeFor? ” singer made headlines on Saturday (2 December) when she attended #Variety ’s Hitmakers event and was asked about her sexuality.
A red carpet reporter at the event had asked Eilish about her interview with Variety last month in which she said that she was “attracted to” women and asked the singer if she had intended to come out.
In response, Eilish laughed and said: “No I didn’t, but I kind of thought: ‘Wasn’t it obvious?’ I didn’t realise people didn’t know.”
When the reporter commented: “We need to get to a point where you don’t even have to come out,” Eilish told her: “I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time and I just didn’t talk about it. Whoops.”
But while the singer may have appeared all-smiles during the interview, she has since made it clear that she wasn’t impressed.
In a post to Instagram on Sunday night (3 December), Eilish wrote: “Thanks Variety for my award and for also outing me on a red carpet at 11 am instead of talking about anything else that matters. I like boys and girls leave me alone about it please literally who cares stream ‘What was I made for’.”

Tennant reprises his role as the tenth doctor to play the fourteenth doctor alongside Tate as his companion Donna Noble for the 60th anniversary specials. #NcutiGatwa will make his series debut as the fifteenth doctor.
Jurors at #ManchesterCrownCourt have this week been hearing evidence from the prosecution in the case of Brianna Ghey, a 16-year-old trans girl who was stabbed to death in #Culcheth #LinearPark , Warrington on 11 February.
The two defendants, named Girl X and Boy Y as they cannot be named for legal reasons due to their age, are accused of murdering Ghey. They both deny the charge.
The court heard that following Ghey’s death, Girl X posted a screenshot of an #WarringtonGuardian article on her Snapchat account with a “rest in peace” message.
“Brianna was one of the best people I have ever met and such an amazing friend its so f****** sickening what got done to her,” the post read.
In addition to this, the court also heard audio of a 101 call made by Girl X’s mother to #CheshirePolice , where she explained her child had been with Brianna on the day of her death, alongside Boy Y.
Girl X could be heard in the background of the call, saying they met Culcheth Library at about 1.30pm and Brianna later left to meet a “boy from Manchester”.
“That’s all I know,” she said.

A lack of understanding, as well as misinformation around the devastating virus, had led to the deaths of countless #LGBTQ + people and many feared that HIV could be passed from person to person by touch.
But seeing the bare outstretched hand of a smiling #Diana in 1987 was a moment that gave many of the thousands living with #HIV , hope.
None of the 12 patients at Britain’s first purpose-built HIV/AIDS unit wanted to see #PrincessDiana . They feared what becoming the subject of a press vastly hostile to people living with HIV would make of them.
Eventually one man, who was not far from death, agreed to meet Diana.
In front of the world’s media, Diana shook the hand of a man diagnosed with the illness.
Diana declared to the press pen jockeying around her:
“HIV does not make people dangerous to know.
“So you can shake their hand and give them a hug, heaven knows they need it.”
She was remembered by many top HIV groups and #LGBTQleaders as a pioneer who broke ranks to be there for one of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups of society.
