Mrs Hinch has been admitted to hospital 'until further notice'

Online cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch was rushed to hospital last night amid fears for her health.

The cleaning expert, whose real name is Sophie Hinchcliffe, took to Instagram stories yesterday evening to tell her 2.4 million followers that she had been taken to hospital ‘until further notice’.

‘As you know, I am always so honest with you all, throughout the good and the bad in my life,’ she wrote.

‘Unfortunately, I have been rushed to hospital. While our mini Hinch is being fully monitored and doing fine, unfortunately I am not well myself and I am in hospital now until further notice.’

Sophie, who revealed that she was pregnant with her first child with husband Jamie in December, added that Mr Hinch was with her, ‘being amazing bless him’ and that she has ‘wonderful doctors’ looking after her ‘around the clock’.

Mrs Hinch’s fans, who are known as the Hinch Army, are renowned for their dedication to Sophie and her cleaning (or Hinching) tips and tricks.

‘I know how amazing you all are and how much you care about me,’ she continued. ‘And the last thing I would want is you all worrying about me without me saying anything at all.

‘I promise to keep you all updated as much as I can and please continue to Hinch for me guys,’ she begged.

‘Mrs Hinch needs her Hinchers now more than ever.’

As the clock struck midnight a few hours later, the mum-to-be posted again to assure her followers that she was settled in for the night. ‘I cannot explain how overwhelmed I am with the pure love I have received tonight just in messages alone from you all,’ she added.

‘So emotional but beautiful. My little family and I just love you all. My best friends.’

This morning, Sophie posted a video update showing her hooked up to a foetal heart rate monitor. ‘Baby Hinch is doing fine,’ she told her fans. ‘I love hearing his heart.’

We hope she gets well soon.
