Amusing footage shows the moment a warehouse worker panics as he realises he's in the background of a live news broadcast while on his phone. Watch the clip here:
She said: "We said that we predicted inflation could go from 5.5 percent in January up to 5.9 - possibly 6 percent.
"The reality is here, and it's higher than expected, it's at 6.2 percent - so that's the rate at which prices were increasing from February last year to February this year."
But the serious report found some unexpected light relief when an employee at the warehouse inadvertently found himself on TV, and desperately tried to get out of frame.
As Warhurst took viewers through the sobering figures, the warehouse worker could be seen behind her, standing in the background on his phone.
Suddenly, he looked up and clocked the camera, initially trying to dart off to his right before spinning on the spot and heading off in the other direction.
Clearly flustered, he then slipped his phone into his back pocket and made off for the exit, not looking back as he sped off down the warehouse aisle into the distance.
Warhurst appeared to be unaware of the drama going on behind her, and simply carried on with the live report.
Inflation has now hit a new 30-year peak, which means the cost of many essential goods is only going to continue increasing - after prices rose by 6.2 percent over the last year, seeing fuel, food, and energy costs spiralling out of control.
He told Sunday Morning: "I've been Money Saving Expert since 2000. I've been through the financial crash, I've been through Covid which was mitigated by some of the measures the Chancellor put in place.
"This is the worst - where we are right now, this is the worst.
"When I'm reading messages from people saying money prioritisation used to be 'do I go to the hairdressers, or do I go to the pub and have a takeaway'.
"Now it's about prioritising 'feeding my children over feeding myself'. That is simply not tenable in our society and there is absolute panic - and it has not started yet."
Speaking to Sunak directly, he said: "As the Money Saving Expert who's been known for this - I am virtually out of tools to help people now.
"It's not something money management can fix. It's not something for those in the lowest incomes, telling them to cut their bills will work. We need political intervention."
