From January 2nd we launch our Roadshows - Martin and Saira have been criss crossing the country answering questions that matter to you about the pound in your pocket.

We will be talking savings, car insurance, flight delay reclaims, haggling, childcare vouchers and holiday cash. If you've got a story contact us on itvmlshow@itv.com
