MRS Hinch took to Instagram earlier this month to rave about her favourite mop causing her flock of followers to dash to the store to pick one up.
But one Mrs Hinch fan has divided opinion after announcing that'd she'd received the Flash Power mop as a gift from her fiance' for her upcoming birthday – and some people weren't impressed.
Mum-of-two Demi Barnett revealed that her other half got her the popular mop during a trip to Wilko's where upon seeing the mop she announced that she'd love it for their home – so he purchased the mop for her as "an early birthday present".
Excited by the gift, Demi took to Facebook to share with other members of the 'Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It' Facebook group, but the post attracted a huge amount of negative comments from people who were horrified by the "shocking" birthday gift.
Upon witnessing such a negative response, the once excited mum felt it necessary to defend the gift from her fiance' in a bid to set the "haters" straight, and claimed that the gift was one of many received for her birthday.
She said: "Before I get any more unwanted comments this isn't my only present from him we were out in Wilko today and I said how I wanted this mop so he said another birthday present and put it in the basket.. also we aren't all lucky to have loads of money and big home and I have two baby’s so things like this make me very happy."
But this prompted more than 500 comments from other people who supported Demi and her chosen gift, with some claiming the mop would be their "ideal gift".
One person said: "This kind of thing would be a great birthday present for me. In my Christmas stocking I’ve had a carpet brush and a radiator brush before"
And another added: "My boyfriend said to me I could have anything I wanted for my birthday.. I got him to take me to the UK's biggest Primark and I also got an air fryer because I'd wanted one forever "
While a third person said: "I would love that ! I asked for one of of those small hand vacuums. I got it. !! Love it. My husband wasnt sure. But best present in years"
Some people were left so unsettled by the fact Demi had to even defend herself, and her fiancee's gift, to begin with that they reassured her that the gesture was a great one and encouraged her to ignore the negative responses she'd received.
One person wrote: "Your *edit makes me so sad – what gives people the right to be so judgemental? You have what you want for your birthday girl – and if a mop makes you happy – he’s a fab partner! "
And a second person agreed: "Happy Birthday. You don't need to justify your presents to anyone. Have a lovely day xx"
A third person added: " Don't ever feel the need to justify yourself to others,especially strangers!! You're happy and that's all that matters. Happy birthday "
Meanwhile, a fourth person said: "Happy Birthday! I hope you have a lovely day, Don't justify yourself to anyone, you are both happy and at the end of the day that's all what matters "
The bloke is a legend in our eyes – who wouldn't be absolutely chuffed with this present? Mrs Hinch would certainly agree.
And Demi later added that the mop worked like a charm, so she was super stoked to have received it after all.
