Money saving expert Martin Lewis is set to host ‘Martin’s Money Mondays’ on Good Morning Britain this September alongside Susanna Reid, as we head into one of the toughest economic times in living memory.
Martin - who has long predicted the cost of living crisis would be worse than initially estimated - will start off the week with Susanna, as they provide the most up-to-date information whilst also holding politicians to account.
And following on from the success of Martin and Susanna’s cost of living special for GMB back in March, they will hear directly from viewers at home through live phone-ins to the studio.
Martin Lewis said: “I’ve been the Money Saving Expert for over 20 years – and in that time I’ve never seen anything like the cost of living crisis hitting the nation today, focused around the sickening rises in energy bills. Millions of families risk being forced into poverty by it.
“Sadly right now the best I can hope to offer many of those families is damage limitation, only the politicians have the power to provide actual solutions. So sitting alongside Susanna each Monday, I’m glad GMB is giving us a dual purpose of practical help and holding power to account.”
Susanna Reid said: “I’m delighted to have Martin by my side on Mondays this September tackling such an important issue head on. People are being forced to make impossible decisions and may not know where to turn, so tune in for some advice, support and hope.”
Neil Thompson, Editor at Good Morning Britain, said: “The most pressing concern for everyone in the country right now is the cost of living. We want to do what’s best by our viewers - and there’s no-one better than our very own Martin Lewis to help navigate what is, sadly, set to be a very, very tough winter.
“With his expert knowledge every Monday, he'll be joining Susanna Reid to give our audiences the best tips and practical advice to try to take the edge off the difficult days ahead.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV and ITV Hub.
