A third added: "Tight c**, managed to have your nails done but can’t put the heating on for the kids."

However, the mum hit back at those claiming she wasn't doing enough to keep her children warm.

Meghan first responded to comments questioning why she had her nails done if she couldn't afford to put the heating on.

She responded, saying: "My nails are free because I am a nail technician, judgemental c**."

For those wondering why Meghan hadn't gone into debt to keep her kids warm – she revealed that she already was in debt.

In another video, Meghan shared an image of her electricity bill, which showed she was £2,498.82 in debt.

Meghan said: "This is my current debt from a misread meter, and this is December's electric bill," as she shows another bill for £548.

"So yes, I'm limiting the electric heaters in my house," she added.

The mum claimed that dressing warm and limiting the electric heater was her only option for now.

Despite the negative comments left by trolls the um also received a lot of support and praise in the comments sections of her videos.

Many parents understood how difficult it was to turn the heating on with the cost of living crisis still raging through the UK.

One wrote: "Another person commented: "people saying put your heating on…

"You guys really not understanding that there is a huge hike in prices and people are so poor that they have to choose whether to eat or be warm.

"People saving money to put hot water for cleaning. You just have no idea."

A second person commented: "People commenting "put the heating on" are showing serious ignorance. I'm sorry you're going through this."
