Martin Lewis, the Money Saving Expert, is a campaigning broadcast journalist who is founder and Chair of MoneySavingExpert.com, the UK’s biggest money website – Just under 14 million people have opted to receive his weekly email.
He’s due to start the ninth series of his own prime-time ITV show soon, and is resident expert on many others, and has columns in periodical and newspapers including the Sunday Mirror.
In 2016 he founded and funded the influential Money and Mental Health Policy Institute charity, which he now chairs.
