A woman named Jo called into ITV's studios during today's episode of This Morning to ask the team for advice. She was shocked when her landlord told her that she and her long-term partner had a unpaid debt worth £1000 ($1,308).
But Jo's heartbreak got even worse when her partner packed his bags soon after getting the notification and left for good - leaving her to front the bill.
The mum called into to ask Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby and the Holiday Helpline team what she should do for her 11-year-old daughter for the summer holidays.
Jo said: "I just don't know what to do. She's come home telling me her friends are doing this and doing that and obviously I really want to do stuff with her. At the moment, I'm just affording to feed her, gas and electric and support us as a family.
"Never mind any of the added extra's that an 11-year-old little girl wants to enjoy her summer holiday."

Firstly, Jo was told to check with the relevant authorities as to whether she has to shoulder that debt alone, or whether her ex-partner needs to be involved. She's also told that camping is a really good and cheap way to entertain the family during the summer holidays because there are plenty of hidden gems around the UK.
But at the end of the call, a stoic looking Phillip told Jo that she won't be needing that, because his team wanted to pay it off for her.
He told the camera: "It's our last day, we're in a very good mood. We're going to sort your debt out. We're paying your debt. You're not in debt anymore. Have a lovely summer."
People on social media thought it was a beautiful offer.
Phillip Schofield is such a wee gem, seeing that vid of him paying a ladies debt melted my heart :sob: what a hero

You can hear Jo's absolute elation when she's told that she would be cleared of any commitment to pay back her rent collectors.
I wholeheartedly agree with those on Twitter, what a legend.
