Martin Lewis predominantly uses his Twitter feed to offer financial advice to his followers. But this week the Money Saving Expert shared a funny exchange with his wife of ten years, as she poked fun at his love of Star Trek. It began when Martin tried to tempt his wife to join him on a very unique holiday, writing: "Ok, wow, just seen there is a @startrekcruise – sorely tempted, but not got a hope in hell of persuading Mrs MSE [Money Saving Expert]. Any chance @LaraLewington? Pretty pls." A short time later, Lara did indeed respond: "Erm, I think I might be busy. Oh, you haven't said a date, erm…"


Martin Lewis shared a funny exchange on Twitter with his wife Lara

Martin, 47, and Lara have been married since May 2009. Lara, 40, is a TV presenter, journalist and former weather presenter. Since 2011, she has worked as a reporter on BBC's Click, and is also the technology columnist for Woman magazine. The couple share one child together, daughter Sapphire, who was born in 2012. In a blog post written shortly after her birth, Martin shared: "Her name is Sapphire Susan Lewis and while she weighs a wee 6lb 6oz, her weight in joy is immeasurable.

"Mrs MSE and I would like to thank everyone who has sent their best wishes. We're overwhelmed and feel very fortunate at the volume of messages, though I'm sure you’ll forgive us not responding individually, as at the moment we're going to spend our time concentrating on feeding, cuddling and nappies. Many of you have asked to see a picture. I hope you'll understand that we've decided not to put any pictures of her in the public space. Though for a description, I can say without any fear of contradiction, she is quite the most beautiful baby I have ever seen."
