They may be getting on a bit, but my parents are still the biggest and most supportive force in my life, so I like to return the favour whenever I can. Having said that, I was more than a little bit surprised to find out they were at war with each other over Instagram!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my mum and dad to bits, but seeing them on social media does still feel a little bit strange, especially as they only really post pictures of each other. They’d be better off just sharing one Instagram account instead of having their own separate ones.
Anyway, when my pops called me last week and told me he has more followers than my mum, all of his bragging made me want to help the little lady out so that’s exactly what I did!
I asked my 26,000 Twitter followers to support my mother and I even announced her Instagram name live on air during the Virgin Radio Breakfast show in the hope she’d amass a few more online friends. So after a lot of canvassing, I am proud to say that my mum now has about 200 more followers than my dad does! Thankfully, the rivalry hasn’t driven a wedge between them and as you can see from these pictures, they’re still smiling.
