Hi, all of a sudden my iMessages have been showing up on other people's phone as my email address and not my mobile number. Anyone know why this is?

You may need to check what you have checked in the setting for "Start new conversations from:" on your iPad and your iPhone:
- You can change the address that new iMessage conversations are started with in Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > Start new conversations from:. Note that this setting applies only to new conversations. If you would like to change the address from which messages are sent, first change this setting, and then delete the existing conversation and start a new one.
- iMessage responses will be sent from the address the recipient most recently messaged. For example, a friend sends you a message to your Apple ID. Responses in this conversation will be sent from your Apple ID, even if you've selected new conversations to start from your phone number.
I found these steps in the following article:
