And the star could reportedly face being sacked from the hit MTV show , although bosses refused to confirm it.
The altercation happened while the gang were partying in Benidorm, with Sophie admitting she “snapped” during an argument over her friend, and Sam’s girlfriend, Chloe Ferry.
And while Sam described it as a “full on punch”, Sophie says she regrets her actions.
The 28-year-old told The Sun : “I got so irate and I snapped and obviously I regret it.
“I’m very protective over Chloe though she’s like my little sister. I was angry because he was upsetting her and I thought she deserved better. He said I was just jealous and I totally lost it.
“I got punished because you can’t show violence.”
Sophie says she and Sam had to make up quickly to avoid creating a “toxic” environment in the Geordie Shore house.
The South Shields lass said that while in the real world you probably wouldn’t speak to someone again after getting in a fight like that, you have to make up the next day when taking part in the show.
Insiders tell the newspaper that the incident is being “investigated” and that Sophie has been warned she’ll be “gone for good” if anything else happens.
The new series of the show kicks off tomorrow night.
MTV did not want to comment when contacted by Mirror Online.
