Partner not working Tax Credits

Our household income last year meant we were no longer entitled to tax credits this year however two weeks ago my husbands job ended.  I phoned tax credits to explain change of circumstances and that only I am working now. I earned just about 12500 last year and will not earn much more than that this year. The advisor explained that they would still take my husbands income to date into consideration when redoing the award notice  (£6500 gone and spent on household bills and food of course) So any amount I receive will be based on me earning 19000 not  the actual amount I am earning £12500. I am at a loss as to how this can be right and how it will be enough fuel bill probably going up to £450 next month.  I have a 15 year old at moment others children left home in further education. At a loss as to how I can mKs this work. Advisor wasn't much help.
