Mrs Hinch fans spot numbers are written wrong on her new wall clock

Mrs Hinch fans have spotted a glaring ‘mistake’ on her new wall clock.

Sophie Hinchliffe, famously known as Mrs Hinch, regularly shares cleaning hacks on Instagram with her four million fans.

But it was her latest home interior purchase that’s got people talking.

The mum-of-one took to her Instagram stories to show off a feature clock she got from Dunelm.

She explained that the clock she originally bought didn’t quite match the decor of her landing, so she returned it.

Instead, she opted for a wooden Roman numeral design which she, along with many of her fans, adored.

After seeing the mirror on Mrs Hinch’s stories and “falling in love” with it, one of her fans went out to buy it themselves.

However, it was only when she got the clock home that the anonymous woman’s husband spotted the blunder.

The Roman numerals for the number four read IIII instead of IV as it’s typically written.

So she took to Facebook for advice, where she shared a snap of the clock.

She wrote: “I was so excited for it to arrive today to be told by my hubby the Roman numerals for four are wrong.

“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?”

Despite the mistake, the woman was torn on whether or not to return it if “this is going to annoy [me]”.

But a few people said they hadn’t even noticed the problem until she pointed it out.

One person said: “It would drive me crazy mines IV which is how I was always taught 4 was,” whilst another said: “You literally can’t unsee it.”

But a number of people pointed out that a lot of clocks use the IIII representation, so it’s not technically wrong.

One person attached a screenshot from a website that said: “Whilst IV is the accepted and usual version of 4, in the past IIII has been used, commonly in watches and clocks.”

Thanks to the help of people in the comments, the woman decided to keep the clock as they ‘put her mind at ease.’
