However, this book has taken an entirely different form as it is an ‘extraordinarily candid’ memoir of her rise to fame, titled This Is Me.

Explaining the story behind the cover image, Sophie told her Instagram followers that the picture was taken: ‘in our lounge, sat on our sofa, with my spray bottle, wearing THE dress I would wear to those big glam events that I’ve always politely declined because I’m too scared to bloody go. But who knows… maybe one day I might turn up to the ball.

‘But I need to say this… Thank You! Thank you to you for making me feel comfortable to be me. Thank you for helping me feel proud of who I am… I have no idea how I ever got this lucky but I promise you I won’t ever take any of it for granted. I love you all and I will never stop being grateful. This is me!’ Mrs Hinch has penned three books already – Hinch Yourself Happy, The Little Book of Lists and The Activity
