The company looked into the sisters' Instagram follower counts to estimate how much they could be making. Analysing the follower count, value per post, and post frequency, the total added up to an impressive six-figure income.

If Ellie, 30, and 25 year old Izzi decided to combine their potential earnings, they could make £607,017 a year by posting once a day.

Even if the pair just posted once per week, they would still make an eye-watering earning, bringing in an impressive £96,000 a year, which is the average salary of a company director.

Elie is followed by 202,000 people on her Instagram while Izzie has an impressive 185,000 followers. The duo are thought to earn £45,000 between them as Ellie is a hairdresser and mum-of-two Izzi is a nail technician.
