Taking a soak will cost an annual average of £1,023 in 2023, a rise from £542.88 last year, according to Yorkshire Water.

Another £222.77 was spent on using the washing machine in 2022, an annual increase of 95 per cent.
Yorkshire Water’s ‘tea pot index’ suggests the situation will continue to worsen, with a forecast suggesting the cost of heating water will rise by an average of 18 per cent over 2023.
The company advised on how to save £700-a-year, saying halving shower times to four minutes and switching from three baths to five showers a week will have a significant impact.
