Martin Lewis on whether to fix energy now

Martin Lewis has teased that his wife Lara Lewington is more “evil” than he is, despite his reputation as a financial expert.

The journalist, 49, is known for providing advice to consumers on how to save money, including through the MoneySavingExpert website he founded.

And while he’s known as a frugal, he has revealed that his wife Lara, 42, who co-presents BBC’s tech show Click – is even “tighter” than he is.

Martin – who has been married for more than a decade – opened up about his wife during a discussion with Nihal Arthanayake, 50, on his BBC Radio 5 Live programme.

Martin appeared on the radio show earlier this week and asked listeners to reach out to share how they manage their finances as a couple.

This included one listener who discussed her relationship with Martin and Nihal, with her saying that she and her partner are “quite similar” when it comes to finances.

Her comments prompted Martin to mention his own marriage, with him saying that although he’s known for saving money, Lara is more “thrifty” in terms of spending.

He teases that his wife is more frugal than he is



He said: “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. She’s actually overseas filming so I’m definitely safe to say it at the moment – my wife is stricter than I am.”

Martin says that although people suspect him of being more frugal, it is actually his wife. He commented, “You have to open her finger to help you understand that.

“I was like, ‘you can leave them a tip you know, they’re just absolute- Pattinson cups’ “…” no, no, no.

Martin also told the audience that his wife is more hardworking around the house than he is.

The TV star, who shares a nine-year-old daughter with Lara, said: “In my family everyone has influence, that’s my fun name for them.

“When it comes to DIYs and changing plugs, I know who’s better at it and it’s not me. Same goes for tech, as I’m married to a tech journalist.”

His wife Lara filmed in Sweden this week for the tech show Click, with she’s been posting photos from the experience on her Instagram account in recent days.

“Incredibly shot in Sweden, piloting a ‘flying’ boat, navigating a boat past the clock and generally having a great adventure on some very icy waters,” she wrote recently. .

The presenter thanked her production team and revealed that although there were “a few slips on the ice”, none of them actually fell into the water during filming. .
