Susanna Reid invites the next PM on the new cost of living segment with Martin Lewis

Susanna Reid called on the next prime minister to answer questions about the cost of living crisis as she joins Martin Lewis for Martin’s Money Mondays on Good Morning Britain.

Lewis, nicknamed the Money Saving Expert, will start the week with Reid and offer viewers the most up-to-date information while “answering the politicians” every Monday in September.

Discussing the importance of the show in the current economic climate, Reid said Lewis is “the hero we all need right now”.

He told the PA news agency: “It’s the one thing everyone talks about, thinks, cares about, cares about.

“People need answers and what I think is so perfect about Martin being on Monday’s show is that even though politicians can’t provide answers, Martin always has suggestions, he always has solutions.

“I know he personally feels like he’s running out of options, but at least you know that with Martin you will not only have someone who will ask the right questions, but he also has all this information at his fingertips.

“He has a very analytical mind and wants to go out of his way to help people. So she is the perfect person at the perfect time. “

Reid, 51, who was commended for his GMB interview with Boris Johnson, especially his questioning about the cost of living crisis, said there is an open invitation for the next prime minister to appear on the show. .

He said: “We’re at the heart of a current news program, we have that kind of audience, we always want to hear from those in charge.

“I personally send that invitation to whoever the next prime minister is, as soon as they are in position, because our viewers will want to know exactly what their plans are and we will want to question them to make sure everything holds up.

“Once again, Martin Lewis is the perfect person to do it.”

Lewis, 50, said that if he had the opportunity to interview the new prime minister, his goal would be “to analyze, explain and question the package that has not yet been announced”.

He told the PA news agency: “It mirrors what we had during the pandemic. The impact on people’s home lives of the cost of living crisis is a mirror of the impact the pandemic has had on many people’s home lives. .

“Unfortunately, the only way to overcome this particular crisis for the millions of people who are the poorest and most vulnerable will be through government help.

“So it’s important to listen to the decision makers, why they’re making the decisions they’re making and how they think it’s going to work.”

Lewis said he sees his role as “double” during the crisis.

“He is both giving public vision back to politicians, which I did with (then Chancellor) Rishi Sunak during the pandemic, and also trying to explain to the public exactly what measures and aid are available,” he said.

“Where that help isn’t enough, try to push back, in private or in public, to make sure the help you need is there.

“We have to be blunt, a lot of help is needed for many people.”

Rishi Sunak or Liz Truss will be named the new prime minister on Monday after a vote by Conservative Party members after Boris Johnson stepped down in July.

Martin’s Money Mondays airs Monday on Good Morning Britain at 6am on ITV and ITV Hub.
