Mrs Hinch fans notice mistake on numbers of her new Dunelm wall clock

When it comes to interior design and cleaning, Mrs Hinch certainly knows a thing or two.

The pregnant mum-of-one boasts 4million followers on Instagram where she gives fans a glimpse of her family life.

Usually the influencer shows off her recent purchases on her social media – and this latest one has got people talking.

Posting to her Instagram stories, Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, debuted her new wall clock from Dunelm.

She admitted it wasn't quite right so she returned it and found another similar version which she now loves.

Many of her fans adored it too, although one woman noticed a mistake when she returned home with it.

The anonymous woman's husband focused on the number four which like the others on the clock were written in Roman numerals.

But rather than IV as it's usually written, the marking for four was IIII instead.

She shared a screengrab of Mrs Hinch's clock on Facebook, admitting she made the purchase after "falling in love".

The post read: "I was so excited for it to arrive today to be told by my hubby the Roman numerals for 4 are wrong."

She added: "I just checked the pic I had screenshot and hers is also wrong, I wonder why the shop did this.

"Am I the only one that didn't notice this on hers?"

The social media user didn't know whether to return the clock or not but admitted "this is going to annoy [me]".

Meanwhile others hadn't even noticed it, but some did say it is a "common problem".

One suggested: "I'd return it. That's a massive error."

Another added: "I've just looked at my clock that I bought from Dunelm years ago and it has IIII instead of IV too, I've never noticed it."

A third commented: "I hate when this happens. I've purposely not bought a clock I love the style of because the '4' was wrong."

While a fourth wrote: "Both ways are correct – I never thought it could be like that until I started designing watches."

Monochrome Watches explained: "While the 4 is commonly written IV, the dials of our watches and clocks rely, most of the time, on a surprising IIII representation.

"Of course, there are exceptions to the rule as, for instance, Big Ben in London. However, on most dials, 4 o'clock is depicted with IIII."

The woman later updated her post and told Facebook users: "Thanks all – I'm going to keep the clock you've put my mind at ease."

Well we wouldn't have noticed that…
