She hasn’t had her Instagram for long

Mrs Hinch started up her Instagram back in March 2018 and has since gained a whopping amount of followers, so kudos to her!

Within six months Mrs Hinch had over a million followers, with fans loving her cleaning tips and household hacks, but it turns out she wasn’t looking for fame at all – she revealed it was actually a coping mechanism to deal with her anxiety.

"I've always been a worrier. But whenever I felt like I might have a panic attack, I would then get up and grab a cloth or a mop or a hoover and just start going," she told the Sun.

Mrs Hinch now has 3.4 million followers on the social media platform.

She makes an average of '£6,000 per Instagram post'

It’s reported Mrs Hinch makes an average of £6,000 from each Instagram post she shares, making her the UK’s biggest ‘cleanfluencer’ with the worldwide crown going to Japanese cleaner Marie Kondo who receives a whopping £6,800.

She’s rumoured to be worth an estimated £1 million

Since the cleaning influencer began her Instagram account, @Mrshinchhome, she is rumoured to be worth an estimated £1million, thanks to her book and numerous endorsement deals.

Mrs Hinch has always describes herself as “just a normal girl who loves to clean her house."

Before becoming an Instagram star, Mrs Hinch was a hairdresser

Mrs Hinch worked as a hairdresser before deciding to don the Marigolds – perhaps that’s why her blonde mane always looks so glossy!

The star once said during an Instagram Q&A: “I've had a few jobs since I left school. I've worked as a waitress, at an after school club as a nursery assistant, call centre office, job board sales, and a hairdresser."

Mrs Hinch isn’t a professional cleaner

The 30 year old isn’t a professional cleaner, despite what you may think.

She has told her followers: “I'm just a normal girl who loves to clean her house. The fact that me doing so in my own mad way motivates and encourages others to have fun and do the same, makes me so happy."

She had a gastric band when she was 21

When the #10YearChallenge was trending on social media, Mrs Hinch revealed she’d had a gastric band fitted when she was younger.

The star spent £6,000 on her band and, speaking to You magazine, said: “The surgery works for some people, but for me, if I had known the complications and risks, I wouldn't have done it.”

Describing the reasons behind having surgery in the first place, Sophie continued: “I'd just passed my driving test, so I was able to go out in the car and get takeaways at McDonald's Drive-Thrus. Before I knew it, I was eating for what felt like eating's sake.”

She ended up losing eight stone in weight, but added: “Even if you lose the weight you never forget the comments."

Her dog Henry has his very own room

Cocker spaniel Henry is utterly adorable and has his own Instagram account where he has garnered a whopping 159,000 followers.

And Henry actually sleeps in an adult bed. Mrs Hinch revealed the news on her Instagram, posting a picture of the single bed, made up with a quilt and fresh sheets, captioning it: "What does Henry do in the night? I literally make his bed every morning!"

She met her husband while working in sales

Sophie and her husband Jamie met when they worked together in sales for a central London job-search company.

After this job, Sophie became a hairdresser, before becoming our beloved Mrs Hinch on social media.

She and hubby Jamie tied the knot in August 2018 as Gosfield Hall in Essex.
