It comes after Martha revealed she feels ‘ashamed’ to admit she is an influencer in Australia, where she claims the profession is not respected.

However, she feels the career is more respected in Europe.

‘In Australia it’s constantly s**t on. Being an influencer is dirty,’ she wrote in an Instagram Stories post on Friday.

‘Every time I travel and people ask me what I do I’m so embarrassed to even say it, because I’ve been conditioned to be ashamed,’ she went on.

‘In Europe and the States it’s so well received. They see it as entrepreneurial.’

Martha continued: ‘I studied to be a nurse, I know what hard work is. I know how good I have it.

‘I have the luxury to work from anywhere and any time (well not really any time). And sure we get good s**t, but we live under a microscope with thousands of people waiting for us to f**k up so they can all share it and write about it and laugh.’

The pint-sized star has amassed over 642,000 Instagram followers since finding fame on Married At First Sight three years ago.

Although Martha has never revealed the exact figure she charges for branded content, it’s estimated she makes up to $3,000 for a single sponsored post.
