The pair also revealed the results of an exclusive survey run by GMB and it included the shocking statistic that over a third (34%) of people have already fallen into debt because of the current energy bills situation.

More than half of those surveyed (60%) think there should be a reduction of the energy cap prices to tackle the rising cost of living and 52% believe energy companies should pay a windfall tax.

A third of those polled (30%) said their mental health had worsened due to the current state of affairs.


There are small ways you can save on bills 

During the show, Martin called on the government to act, just hours before new Prime Minister Liz Truss was announced. "What this country needs now more than anything else is an active government and I hope that starts today."
