Konnie Huq – what’s the going rate for kids doing chores?

For over a decade, Konnie Huq encouraged a generation of children to become creative with making things from dolls houses to Bat caves as the longest-serving Blue Peter presenter of all time . Now the children’s author and mother-of-two is encouraging kids to make the most of their money.

It comes as a new report has shown it’s six-year-olds who saw the biggest increase in pocket money up to whooping 34.5% year-on-year growth to reach £3.94 a week while 16-year-olds enjoyed the highest weekly allowance of £12.75.

Konnie, who has two sons, Covey 10 & Huxley 8 with husband and fellow writer Charlie Brooker, knows there is a balance between rewarding her children and teaching them vital money skills especially with the findings from NatWest Rooster Money’s annual Pocket Money Index showing that kids’ average annual income has increased by 11% in 2022/23 with the majority getting an additional £6.42 per week.

Aston spoke to TV presenter Konnie Huq and Will Carmichael, CEO and founder of NatWest Money Rooster.
