Mrs Hinch has opened up about her struggles with trolling during an emotional appearance on This Morning.

The cleaning influencer - real name Sophie Hinchliffe - opened up to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about her experiences of being in the public eye on Thursday's show, which she called "petrifying".

"I'm so so lucky to be on this journey but at the same time it's petrifying, it's quite scary because I don't know how it's happened," said Mrs Hinch, 30.

She continued: "There's been so many highs and the positives far outweigh the negatives, but the dark side of it is really quite dark," adding: "I was never ready for this and I'm still not."

Mrs Hinch appeared on 'This Morning' via video call, to chat to Holly and Phil about her life in the public eye (

Later in the interview, when Phil raised asked the mum-of-one about the vile trolling of her son - something she has had to call the police for before - Sophie became visibly emotional.

Becoming choked up, she responded: "The thing is Phil, I don't really address it or talk about it on my Stories because I've always had it as a really lighthearted, fun place to be [...] but it's got to a point now that i need to shine a light on the fact that people are going through this.

"People are meant to be so supportive and kind to each other at the moment and the truth is there is a whole side to all this social media, influencer world and public eye that's so scary and so daunting."

The candid interview comes just days after Mrs Hinch revealed she has had to call the police after fears for her family's safety.

Speaking to You Magazine, the influencer revealed she had received numerous threatening messages, meaning she has had to get the police involved so that she feels safe.

She explained: "They message saying, 'Your baby should be moving more, he should have more teeth.' They're even horrible about my dog!

"It turns my gut and takes my breath away; it makes me want to scream and cry."

She went on: "I know I should ignore them, but when you get told the same thing over and over again - 'Your voice is horrendous', 'Your face is wonky', 'Your hands are disgusting' - there's only so many times you can ignore it without wondering if it's true.

"So I look at my hands and think, 'Maybe people don't want to see them,' and put on rubber gloves when I don't need to."

Previously, Mrs Hinch has admitted to suffering from panic attacks after online bullies targeted her and her family.
