Meet Ella’s mum Sonia

Sonia Brown is a self-employed mum. Her Facebook profile states that she lives in Hornchurch, Barking and Dagenham.

She is in a relationship, however it’s not clear who with. In a picture that she posted, which she states goes back 14 years ago, she wrote: “I love him the same today as I did then, well sometimes, ha ha ha.”

She added: “So young” to a comment that stated: “Young love”, insinuating she met him when she was younger.

Just like in the show, Sonia is incredibly supportive of Ella, sharing lots of photos of them together. Her profile picture is a throwback to when Ella was very young. She commented: “Wish she was this little.”

Ella’s mum has had her fair share of appearances on the show, especially in series 26.

She was seen discussing Ella’s love life with her recently, when they talked about her dates with Tom McDonnell.

Sonia said: “He seems like a genuine person. So let him in a bit.” She added:

It does sound like you really like him, though. And you never know, he might end up quite a nice son-in-law.

In the past, Sonia has been seen giving advice to Ella, and admitted: “When you get to my age, you’ll still learn.”

On the most recent episode, Ella and Chloe Brockett are mid-feud. Then Ella asks Chloe if she’s going to have a cup of tea with her mum after she “slept with her ex-boyfriend”.
