Instagram is all about filtered pictures, clever angles and pretty backdrops, right?
Fearne shared an au naturel snap of herself yesterday, which showed her make-up free and with her hair pulled back into loose plaits.
Of course, she looked stunning. But that wasn’t her point.
She captioned the image: ‘Ok let’s reverse this scene. Who is with me? Our social media culture is getting way out of control with filters/editing/perfect snap shots which are leading to acute pin pointing of so called imperfections.
‘I want to celebrate my imperfections and embrace it all. So here I am. No make up, greasy hair, tired mum eye bags, bottom brace, un-plucked brows, and happy. #CelebrateTheImperfect.’
Fearne’s fans were quick to praise the mum-of-two’s message.
One commented: ‘You are truly beautiful. What a shining example of how ladies should look. Thank you Fearne for being real xxx,’ while another wrote: ‘I’m with you Fearne.’
This isn’t the first time in recent days that Fearne’s made an effort to be honest with her followers.
Earlier this week, she revealed that she’d had braces fitted to her bottom teeth – by posting a shot of herself pointing straight at ’em.

Beside it, she’d jokily written: ‘Teen spirit. #BackToBraces.’
Brilliant. THIS is why we love you, Fearne.
