A mum have revealed how she is making a six figure sum after quitting her job as a GP receptionist to post brutally honest reviews online.

Antonella Brollini never expected that when she made a jokey 50p bet with a friend it would lead to her to becoming an Internet sensation.

Over the past two years the 45-year-old vlogger, known as The Uncensored Reviewer, has won millions of followers on social media because of her hilariously frank and sweary product reviews.

Her Facebook page now has 1.3m followers, her Instagram has 163,000 and she's followed by 750,000 on Twitter .

Her YouTube channel also has 76,000 subscribers, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The mum-of-one from Haslingden in Lancashire has described herself as 'like an online Avon lady', receiving commission from people ordering products through a link provided on her posts.

Companies approach her to post about their products and are aware that she'll speak as she finds with her brutally honest reviews.

Her big hits include her test of the VIPoo fragrance spray for the toilet, a stick-on push-up bra and a Morrison's foot-long sausage roll.

After launching as a reviewer in February 2017, Antonella was approached to make the BBC Three show Truth Or Mare, getting to the root of pressing questions such as 'should pole dancing be an Olympic sport?' and 'can chocolate make you more clever?'

She was then snapped up by BBC One as a reviewer for the new daytime TV show The Customer Is Always Right .

She said: "I suffered from bad health and had free time on my hands. I noticed people were reviewing beauty products but they were really boring and bland.

"I bought a lip gloss and made a 50p bet with a friend. I said to my friend 'what we'll do is review this, see who can do the funniest review and post it online. She still owes me that 50p.

"The response I had was overwhelming and within six weeks I had a blue tick on Facebook.

"I quit my job as a receptionist and I'm now earning six figures."

But you won't catch her at showbiz parties, instead she prefers to stay at home in her pyjamas.

"I'm just a doctor's receptionist, that's not my world," she said.

"I'll go to charity events rather than showbiz parties. I'm 45 so I'm not going to a nightclub."

Antonella's frank approach has made her a big hit as agony aunt 'Aunty Nelly' for Chat magazine and she's a columnist for That's Life magazines in Australia and New Zealand.

One of her funnier reviews was when she offered a scathing criticism of a hair band that is supposed to leave hair looking "curly and bouncy".

'I look like I've been f*****g electrocuted'

"It's supposed to make your hair a gorgeous big bouncy curl as you're sleeping.

"Oh f******g hell. I think I'm going to have to cut that bit (of hair) out. What's going on?

"Is that a big bouncy curl? Is it ****!?

"I look like I've been f*****g electrocuted."

She also runs her own boutique, Ruby and Daisy.

"I'm brutally honest and people have always turned to me for advice," she said.

"I've had messages from patients at the medical centre asking me to come back, saying I'm one of the very few nice ones.

"I call my fans my 'Flower Pots' and they send in requests for reviews. I do two or three a week as well as my role as an agony aunt.

"It's so endearing because people will say to me 'I'm a Flower Pot' and they want selfies."

She has a large fan base but Antonella has also become well-accustomed to dealing with trolls on social media.

She said: "I've got lots of trolls but I've got the thickest skin, and I've also got the most boring trolls in the industry.

"If you don't like it it doesn't bother me. I always think 'it's your choice to look at it. You're wasting your day.'"
