I rake in thousands from side hustle but won't give up my £9-an-hour job as a cleaner, I love it too much | The Sun

AN NHS cleaner told how she’s raking in up to £2,000 a day extra thanks to her side hustle.

Married mum Cherry Bloom, 41, looked for a new money-maker four months ago to help pay bills and put food on the table as the cost of living soared.

After returning from the school run and doing the housework, Cherry — whose real name is Lisa — gets glammed up and spends the rest of the day texting admirers and posting raunchy snaps online on OnlyFans.

Cherry, who earns £9 an hour with NHS Lanarkshire, said: “It’s the most money I’ve made in my life. I don’t know why I didn’t do it years ago.

“My husband knows all about it and is so supportive — we said it would only work if we were both honest and told each other everything.

“I could afford to give up my hospital job but I love it and love my workmates.”

After reading success stories about other women boosting their bank balance on the site, Cherry realised she could make another income which would not interfere with caring for her four kids, aged from seven to 17.

She said: “I worked throughout the pandemic, often with little protective gear on, despite being in direct contact with patients.

“Covid was a new disease we’d never had before and I never signed up for that. I was terrified.

“And then came the rising costs of everything — mortgages, gas, electricity and food, so I knew I could no longer solely depend on a job that pays hardly anything.

“You can’t even go to a supermarket these days without having to fork out £5 for a tub of butter, so you can imagine how it is having four kids?”

Despite feeling nervous, Cherry created a profile and has never looked back.

And she has managed to keep her second job a secret until now, without any friends and family knowing, apart from her 42-year-old hubby.

She said: “Some blokes just want to chat to someone, because they’re lonely or have had a bad day — it sometimes feels like counselling.”

Some of her clientele have more unique requests, with punters looking for feet pictures.

But Cherry told how she’s had to refuse some of the weirder requests.

She said: “One guy asked me to send my urine in the post.

"And I had an accountant asking me to send my dirty underwear to him.”

On a normal day she receives around 20 messages and can make around £800 but has banked up to an incredible £2,000.
