Fighting for the consumer and cutting bills without cutting back - The Martin Lewis Money Show returns to ITV for a second series.
Over the last few months Martin and Saira have been traversing the country with their signature flash mob (or cash mob!) money saving.
This time we find holiday makers, market traders, rugby players and even a choir who all benefit from Martin's practical, money saving tips.
It's a perfect time to focus on finance with the new tax year starting on the 5th April.
Prepare for some up to the minute tips to save on fuel bills, ISA's, bank account charges and holidays.
Reporter Saira Khan will learn how to boost finances with some savvy money management, a few up front questions and of course a cash back credit card - which she always pays off, "In Full!"
