After being caught trolling her husband, influencer Clemmie Hooper has quietly disappeared.

UK influencer and ‘mummy blogger’ Clemmie Hooper, who had 660,000 Instagram followers, has always portrayed an ostensibly perfect family life to her loyal followers. Smiles, selfies and sunsets filled her feed.

But one of her deepest fears was unveiled when her double life was unmasked last month.

The 34-year-old was secretly a ruthless online troll, it transpired, targeting her own husband of 11 years.

Clemmie’s Instagram, ‘Mother of Daughters’, documented her life with her four daughters and her husband, who himself has a million followers on the account ‘Father of Daughters’. Their life looked bliss.

But the revelation that Clemmie was trolling her husband has seemingly been the catalyst for Clemmie’s exit from social media altogether in December.

Indeed, it appears Clemmie has quit Instagram with her page now deleted.

Her husband remains online, and neither have offered any explanation for where Clemmie has gone.

So, what did Clemmie Hooper do?

The influencer family were frequently subject to hate on a gossip forum called ‘Tattle.life’.

Now we know that Clemmie, who is also a part-time midwife, had her own account on the forum under the pseudonym ‘Aliceinwanderlust’.

Aliceinwanderlust labelled another influencer, Bethie Hundgerford, “desperate” and called Clemmie’s husband a “class-A twat”.

“I can’t believe she puts up with his nonsense,” wrote Aliceinwanderlust.

Whispers began that the influencer was behind the account Aliceinwanderlust when she said she was in the Caribbean, as was Clemmie.

As speculation mounted, Clemmie crumbled.

She exposed herself.

"Earlier this year, I became aware of a website that had thousands of comments about my family and I," Clemmie wrote on her Instagram stories last week.

"Reading them made me feel extremely paranoid and affected me much more than I knew at the time. I decided without telling anyone else that I would make an anonymous account so that this group of people would believe I was one of them, or that I could maybe change their opinions from the inside to defend my family and I."

"It became all consuming and it grew bigger than I knew how to handle," Clemmie continued. "When the users started to suspect it was me, I made the mistake of commenting about others.

"I regret it all and am deeply sorry – I know this has caused a lot of pain," she said.

"Undoubtedly I got lost in this online world and the more I became engrossed in the negative commentary, the more the situation escalated. Engaging in this was a huge mistake. I will take responsibility for what happened and I am just so sorry for the hurt I have caused everyone involved including my family and friends.”

How did Clemmie Hooper's husband respond?

Clemmie's husband, Simon Hooper, 34, has responded to being the target of trolling by his own wife.

On Instagram, he wrote: "So, some people in this corner of the internet may want to know my response to what’s happened over the last couple of days. Frankly, I'm in a crap position as I only really have 2 options – 1). to stay silent to protect my wife & knowing that if I do, the silence will be deafening or 2). to comment on something I had no knowledge of. It's not a fun place to be. And yet fun is what I came to Instagram for."

So, some people in this corner of the internet may want to know my response to what’s happened over the last couple of days. Frankly, I'm in a crap position as I only really have 2 options - 1). to stay silent to protect my wife & knowing that if I do, the silence will be deafening or 2). to comment on something I had no knowledge of. It's not a fun place to be. And yet fun is what I can to Instagram for. I don’t take myself or life too seriously, but when something like this happens I have to acknowledge it and in all honesty, I'm feeling both angry & a bit sad. I can't condone or fully understand why Clemmie did what she did.  Make no mistake about it - she made some bad choices - I just wish she could have spoken to me about this before it all got too much. Actually, If we're wishing for things, I wish it had never happened in the first place. I’ve seen first hand what 3 years of being attacked online can do to a person and the dark places it can drive you to – I guess whereas I can happily ignore it all, she couldn’t & ended up getting lost. To be clear, I’m not here to defend my wife’s actions or provide excuses because I have none. What I do know is that online actions have real world consequences - this has impacted our family & it will take some time to recover. That said, away from these squares, the world keeps spinning, the leaves are turning & we have 4 girls that need their parents. I'll be here tomorrow doing what I do.

Clemmie hasn't spoken since her astonishing admission, but some outraged onlookers have reported her conduct to The NMC (The Nursing and Midwifery Council), asking them to take action against the registered midwife.

"Please be assured that we have passed all these messages onto the relevant teams here at the NMC," they responded.
