Cleaning guru Mrs Hinch has opened up about suffering from a blood disorder that leaves her covered in bruises.
The 30-year-old social media sensation – whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe – bravely opened up about her condition on Instagram after she read a cruel message left by a troll.
After being branded a “stuck up b****” for wearing a long dress to the beach, Stacey Solomon’s best pal was forced to reveal that she in fact wore the outfit to cover up her bruised legs.
In her candid social media post, that she shared with her 3.7 million Instagram followers, Sophie unveiled a picture of her legs alongside an explanation of her condition.
“In all honesty I wore this long dress because I wanted to hide my legs. My blood condition is not good right now so I am covered in bruises that I cannot control.
Sophie in fact suffers from Protein S deficiency and Factor V Leiden, which means that she is more prone to blood clots.
The inherited condition is usually treated with daily blood thinning medication.
In her social media story, Mrs Hinch went on to reveal that her condition is “not good right now,” meaning she is constantly left with the large bruises.
She spoke about the condition alongside an empowering message on Monday night where she urged her followers to stop trying to please others.
“Thank you firstly My dress was £38 from river island so thats a barg “evening dress,” she wrote.
“But In all honesty I wore this long dress because I wanted to hide my legs.
“My blood condition is not good right now so I am covered in bruises that I cannot control.
“But why did I bother? As you’ll now know about my bruises too!
“So thank you, because of you I will wear my denim shorts next time and wear them proud!
“Because no matter what I do, I will NEVER please people like you!”
It’s not the first time that Sophie has opened up about her condition on her social media page.
In August, the blonde bombshell was asked by a fan how her body was so “perfect,” to which Sophie revealed her condition.
“I promise you my body is far from perfect. I’m constantly covered in large bruises because of my blood condition,” she shared on Instagram.
“I have stretch marks all over my inner thighs and the tops of my legs.”
Sophie’s recent post came after the social media sensation took a weekend break from her online platform in hopes of raising awareness for mental health.
