Responding to the news, Martin said: "To have the ability to hold politicians to account, over the cost of living, is a privilege and a responsibility. It's a slight gear change from my usual work, but after years of answering complex questions, it's nice for once to be asking them. So I was delighted when ITV offered me the role of regular presenter.
