The FSA has previously warned that a "ticking time bomb" has been created over the last 20 years, with an estimated 1.5 million interest-only loans worth around £120 billion due for repayment in the next decade.

The FSA is looking at how many interest-only borrowers will be unable to repay their loans and plans to publish its findings next spring.
