Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis revealed that he cried over one man's story about how the rising cost of living has hit him. Martin Lewis said he was moved to tears after receiving the message on Twitter.

Mr Lewis and TV presenter Susanna Reid were both tagged in a tweet by the man. Mr Lewis wrote: "My eyes rimmed with tears after reading this. This is both wretched and sweet in equal measure."

The Twitter user had said: "The old fella who lives next door to me goes to our shopping centre and sits there until it closes, he takes a flask and sandwiches and sits in front of the local TV shop they even put his channel on for him and fill his flask."

A user called Jane replied: "That is just sadness to hear - what about community places paid for by local authorities so that old folk who are able to look after themselves but can't afford the comforts the wealthy can, can come together, meet up, watch tv and perhaps be fed a warm meal per day?"

User Sir Dave said: "It's the Conservative government's fault - we are the sith richest country in the world but have one of the lowest pensions in Europe, that starts at one of the highest age levels. It's a political choice."

User Colin said: "Bizarre that someone thinks the energy saved on taking showers elsewhere is going to be more than £40 a month. The gas for my long shower in the morning costs 40p. That’s £12 a month."

Richard said: "It’s heartbreaking, we must protect the elderly. Up the state pension as well to at least £250 a week, oh and bring it back to 65 when you get it. People should enjoy their retirement." Dawn replied: "UK pension is one of the worst in Europe. German pensioners get a lot more in comparison."
