The bank lost 16,600 following an IT meltdown last year, which left up to 1.9m people unable to get into their accounts for a number of weeks.

Those who stayed with the challenger bank have once again been affected by problems this morning.

TSB said services were returning to normal around lunchtime after customers had experienced issues with their internet banking and mobile app – and that the cause of the problem would be investigated.

Earlier this month the challenger bank said last year’s IT meltdown cost £330m and that 80,000 people left the bank in 2018.
