If she becomes Tory leader tomorrow and PM on Tuesday as expected, Ms Truss will give “immediate” help to families facing huge costs, she said.

Speaking to BBC’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg show, and asked if the UK is at a crisis point, Ms Truss said: “I think we face some very, very serious challenges.”

“We face very, very serious challenges, which will take immediate action from the Government.”

Pressed on what action she will take, Ms Truss said she would act within one week.

She said: “If I’m elected as prime minister, within one week I will make sure there is an announcement on how we are going to deal with the issue of energy bills and of long-term supply to put this country on the right footing for winter.

“What I want to reassure people is I will act, if elected as prime minister, within one week.

“We still don’t know the outcome of this leadership contest. So, it would be completely wrong.”
