She recently married former EastEnders actor Joe Swash in their garden at Pickle Cottage, but has said that even though they are both successful TV stars, she is worried about paying for escalating energy bills at their family home.

Mum-of-four Solomon told The Guardian: "If our energy bill doubles, then it might well be beyond our means in the future.

"I’m not saying it is the same for us as someone on the breadline, ’cos it blooming well isn’t. But it’s such a scary time. How have we allowed the country to get to this point? How can the government not be prepared for it?"

The 32-year-old added that she didn't feel particularly aligned to any political party, but said that she was interested in "the way that some people get dealt certain hands and others don’t".

Complaining that most politicians have such a different level of education to the general public that she feels they don't talk about issues in easy to understand terms, she said that she often has to slow down discussions while watching Question Time to try to make sense of it.

Solomon, who presents BBC series Sort Your Life Out where she helps people to declutter their homes, said that she would love to put her organisational skills to use to sort out public spending.

She said: "This sounds really sad. But I’d love to look at how we do things and reevaluate. My sister is a paediatric nurse and I’d love to look into how things are spent, because I know her hospital needed certain equipment and couldn’t buy it from a place that was loads cheaper because it was contracted to buy from somewhere else...I’d love to go and give it a shake-around."
