Good news for many as Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis has landed a regular spot on Good Morning Britain.

Fans are hoping he will "hold power to account" in his new role.

Lewis will be hosting Martin's Money Mondays on Good Morning Britain from September with Susanna Reid.

It comes amid the rising cost of living and fears over bills.

Many people have been sharing their fears online along with various money saving hacks and tips.

The duo hosted a money special earlier on this year, with some fans calling him "this country’s only saviour".

They will hear from viewers thanks to live phone-ins to the studio.

Speaking about the new weekly special, Martin shared: ‘I’ve been the Money Saving Expert for over 20 years – and in that time I’ve never seen anything like the cost of living crisis hitting the nation today, focused around the sickening rises in energy bills. Millions of families risk being forced into poverty by it.’

He continued: "Sadly right now the best I can hope to offer many of those families is damage limitation, only the politicians have the power to provide actual solutions.

"So sitting alongside Susanna each Monday, I’m glad GMB is giving us a dual purpose of practical help and holding power to account.

Susanna added: "I’m delighted to have Martin by my side on Mondays this September tackling such an important issue head on.

"People are being forced to make impossible decisions and may not know where to turn, so tune in for some advice, support and hope.’

Neil Thompson, Editor at Good Morning Britain, said: "The most pressing concern for everyone in the country right now is the cost of living. We want to do what’s best by our viewers – and there’s no-one better than our very own Martin Lewis to help navigate what is, sadly, set to be a very, very tough winter.

"With his expert knowledge every Monday, he’ll be joining Susanna Reid to give our audiences the best tips and practical advice to try to take the edge off the difficult days ahead.’
