MRS Hinch is best known for her cleaning hack, but has been praised for sharing a very moving video today about accepting herself.
The cleanfluencer, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, showed off her “mum-tum” and stretchmarks in a clip that encouraged women to “never be ashamed” of themselves.
The mum-of-two, 32, from Essex, told her 4.5million followers: “You need to fight your mind everytime it tries to convince you you aren’t good enough.
“Never be ashamed of the things that you are, your uniqueness, your quirkiness.
“Be so completely yourself, that everyone else feels safe to be themselves too.
“Because owning your life story is the bravest thing you’ll ever do.”

During the clip, she showed her own body’s bruises, scars, stretchmarks and tummy.
Her bruises are caused by her suffering from a condition called Protein S deficiency and Factor V Leiden.
As a result, she is more likely to develop blood clots and must take blood thinning medication every day.
Many people were quick to praise her for sharing the down-to-earth video.

But as well as the trolling, longstanding insecurities over her appearance have worsened with life in the spotlight.
In her bestselling memoir This Is Me, she writes: “These people have almost destroyed me and the fact that I am on medication for depression and anxiety for the first time in my life is largely down to what they have put me through.”
Sophie says she has been pushed to the limit by relentless internet bullies, who attack her looks and lifestyle, picking apart everything she posts.
