Mrs Hinch has once again thrilled fans by letting them in on the little secret to how she manages to make the pleats in her curtains look so even.

Taking to her Instagram stories to share a close-up picture of her perfectly styled drapes, the mum-of-one wrote, "I know lots of you guys already know this. But for my new followers, the even pleats in my curtains are created using pipe insulation which I buy on eBay."

She then posted a snap of the inside of the curtain and wrote, "I buy the largest diameter, so they still slide across the pole! And simply cut it into even segments. Hope this helps xx."

Nifty, eh?

"I try to keep my platform as positive as possible and as upbeat as it can be, but sometimes I don't address some of the good and the bad things that I read out there because it's slightly uncomfortable.

"My followers deserve a bit of what you're asking for, which is me as Sophie and the life behind Mrs Hinch, so I've been working on my very own memoir to be able to put everything: the amazing highs but also the lows that have come with becoming Mrs Hinch."
