Martin Lewis and wife Lara Lewington were in good spirits on Thursday evening as they marked the beginning of the new series of The Martin Lewis Money Show, which the couple are filming from the comfort of their own home due to the lockdown.

Taking to Twitter ahead of the start of the ITV show, Martin proudly posed with his wife Lara, who has been helping him produce it since they began to self-isolate in March.

Lara, a reporter on BBC's Click, also took to Twitter to share a picture - but this time just of Martin, hard at work at his desk.

"Pre-show concentration, as another series of @itvMLshow kicks off in our house at 8.30," she said alongside a picture of the money expert sat working on his laptop.

Fans were delighted with the rare pictures and the couple were inundated with sweet messages. "Gorgeous couple," wrote a follower, whilst a second wondered: "Your wife is gorgeous! Was it love because of the fact you are both journalists and have diverse interests that work well together?"
