One person wrote: "Gas bill for 6 week period I had was £745. Live with family and two cold snaps haven’t helped but something needs to be done ASAP."

Another user also detailed the staggering rise of their bill: "I used to pay £165 now £505."

Last year the government announced a scheme to give every household £400 to help with their energy bills over the cold winter months and also capped the amount suppliers could charge consumers per unit.
