Martin Lewis issues apology for giving ITV viewers the wrong advice

When it comes to money saving tips and advice, there’s probably one name that springs to mind before any other – Martin Lewis.

For years the Money Saving Expert has been dishing out his tips and tricks to ITV viewers, and in the process has saved people some serious cash.

But even Martin makes mistakes sometimes – as he proved on this week’s instalment of the Martin Lewis Money Show.

The episode saw him address everything from the furlough and self-employed grant schemes, to travelling abroad, booking holidays and EHIC cards.

Mr Lewis also had advice relating to bank accounts, overdrafts, payment holidays and plenty else besides.

Martin also advised viewers on bank accounts, telling them: “Normally I would say try and fix your savings, to lock in on a better rate, but the best one year fixed is just 1% with Metro Bank.”

However, it wasn’t long before the Money Saving Expert realised he had made a mistake in the advice he’d given out, and issued an apology on Twitter, reports Birmingham Live.

Writing to his followers, he said: “APOLOGY. I made an error on the #martinlewis show just now.

“The top 1 year fixed savings is Marcus account, which is what I thought I’d said, but I’ve been told I said Metro bank. It was a mental hiccough, my apologies.”

He’s only human, after all!
