Sandford attended her local primary school, and after hours she went to dance school; she later went to stage school in Romford. Sandford previously worked in a bar and had a Saturday job as a salesperson in AllSaints concession in House of Fraser, London. Sandford got a tattoo to pay a tribute to her grandmother.

Sandford began dating Dougie Poynter from McFly in October 2008; after over a year together, the pair split up in March 2010, reunited, and split up again in November 2010. After Cheryl Tweedy and Ashley Cole's marriage broke up, The Sun reported that Sandford and Ashley Cole had been having "secret dates", but Sandford later stated, "I haven't even met the man!" and her label expressed views taking legal action towards the tabloid newspaper. During the split with Poynter, Sandford had also been linked to JLS member Aston Merrygold, although Sandford has stated that she and Merrygold are just friends.

Currently dating footballer Wayne Bridge since December 2010.

Sandford plans to move to Los Angeles, United States in a later stage of her life. Sandford stated in an interview with Mail Online, "I like a good time. But I go through stages where I just want to be at home in trackie bottoms. I love being glamorous but I also like putting on my ripped denim shorts, a pair of flat boots and going to a smelly club to see a band."
