I’m sick of people thinking I’m a chav because I live in a council house – I’ve done it up over 17 years and love it | The Sun

A WOMAN who lives in a council house explained that people often think she's "a chav" and lives in a scummy flat, but really her home is stunning.

TikToker Abitofme123 posted a short clip where she explained that the reality of living in a council house is very different the assumptions many people make.

She showed pictures demonstrating what people often think followed quickly by some stunning snaps showing what her council flat really looked like.

She said: "What people think living in a council house looks like verses what it actually looks like."

The video started with a series of pictures showing cluttered and grim flats with peeling wallpaper.

Other snaps showed awful carpets and barristers that had been drawn all over by children.
