Countdown star Rachel Riley had the figures to show how much money residents could save on their energy bills.

The TV presenter visited Barkers Pool in Sheffield city centre to publicise Npower’s Acts of Warmness campaign and give fans tips on how to keep the cold at bay during winter.

This year Npower will spend around £65million assisting those who need help to stay warm, and the firm has been touring the nation to raise awareness.

A team of experts is on hand in Sheffield to share advice about how to keep warm when the temperature plummets.

It is offering advice about help with energy costs including free loft and cavity wall insulation.

The Npower snug is a little pop-up station packed full of warming treats, including tea and warming massage chairs.

Rachel, who also starred in Strictly Come Dancing, said: “Npower has £65million in grants on offer and you won’t know you are eligible unless you ask.

“By doing this I have learnt things I can do to save money. I’m away filming Countdown three days a week, so I switch the heating off.

“Switching the lights off in rooms you’re not in and turning appliances off standby can save around £80.

“Only filling the kettle up to the level needed will save £43 a year. There are little things you can do that don’t affect your life, but if you change your habits it saves you money.”

The snug is open until Sunday.
