Cleaning influencer Sophie Hinchliffe has four million subscribers, a bestselling book and a number of brand collaborations to her name.
But that wasn’t always the case as the Instagram star recently admitted that she became obsessed with cleaning because she was “lonely”.
On the second episode of her podcast “All the Best and Worst with Mr and Mrs Hinch” – which goes live at midnight on March 23 –Sophie and her husband Jamie spoke about their relationship.
The pair met at work, but eventually moved in together and Sophie decided to take up hairdressing.
They found a flat in between where Sophie and Jamie lived.
But it wasn’t all bliss in the Hinch house.
She said: “When we then decided that I was going to leave work and go into hairdressing, and you were going to stay at work, even though I loved being at home at the flat, it was so lonely.
“It was why I just cleaned all the time.
“I just craved going back home, but obviously we had nowhere to go where I used to live because there's not really flats to rent here is there.
“You can only really buy houses here and we didn't have the deposit.”
She continued: “Yeah, the reason I think I I learned to love cleaning, or the fact that I found so much comfort in it, was the fact that most of the day it was just me and my cloths in the flat.
“You know me and the cloths and keeping busy and hoovering and mopping and shining the sink.”
Jamie said: "When I came through that door, every day, Zoflora, the smell of it would hit me in the face.”
He then commented on how getting their pooch Henry made a big difference to their lives because he kept Sophie company when she was home alone.
Sophie added: “Yeah, that's why I was so obsessed with him.
“I still am because it felt like I had no one there at the time."
