Reset to factory settings in your settings. My first instinct,was - with a baby wipe:-)

Omg pixie that made me laugh!
Eleanor am just going to have a peek - thanku!
A factory reset will restore everything, but remember to remove your sim card. If you leave the sim in, it will appear to be a factory reset phone but some personal details will remain on the sim card.
I reset my phone on a regular basis to remove all the clutter, and it still surprises me what is left on the sim.

Ok stupid stupid question, but I’ve watched eleanours video on how to wipe the phone and says will wipe every app, photo, everything, it won’t affect this phone will it??
It will be in the same state that it was when you got it out of the box i.e. it will only have the default apps.
Only the phone you are wiping. Take the sim out first.
