There’s a savings crisis across the UK. The Bank of England may’ve decided to keep the base rate at 0.5% but it said it could cut it in August, cutting returns for millions of people who’ve worked hard to squirrel away cash. And according to our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis, that’s just the start. Unless you ACT NOW to boost your savings rates it’s only due to get worse…
Stop paying credit card interest, 16-17 summer holiday camp, £10 Harry Potter and FREE posh soup. These are our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’ Quick Deals.
Remember, deals can change quickly, even while I’m on the programme. So always double-check the terms and conditions before spending. Plus, while I hope these deals will save you cash, don’t spend if you can’t afford it, don’t need it, or won’t use it.
It's not unusual to forget something when you go on holiday - your toothbrush, your phone charger, even your passport. But Maurice Hunter went one step further and forgot his own wife! He made headlines this week with the hilarious tale of how he accidentally left Carolyn behind at Stansted Airport, mistakenly thinking she had already boarded their flight to Spain.
The couple have now been reunited and join us in the studio. Plus we have surprise for them, which we hope they’ll enjoy together!
Meet Hank, the adorable Staffy-Labrador cross who has captured the hearts of almost a hundred thousand people. That’s the number of signatures who have signed a petition to save his life, after Belfast City Council seized the much-loved pet from owners Joanne Meadows and Leonard Collins.
The couple are now fighting to save Hank's life after the council claimed he is actually a Pit Bull Terrier - a banned breed which is illegal to own. His owners join us live from Belfast to talk about the battle to save their beloved dog. We are also joined by vet Roger Mugford, in the studio.
We all dream of travelling the world, but how about if you could do it for free? Natalie Wood has been seeing the sights all over the world for the past two years after joining dating website Miss Travel. The globe trotter accompanies wealthy men to various holiday destinations, with her suitors having spent over £60,000 simply on the pleasure of her company.
But Natalie insists she isn't a gold digger, just a girl who likes to travel! She joins us now to tell us more.
Nobody likes the sound of screaming children, but would you ever go as far as telling off someone else’s child? Well, one cafe owner in Felixstowe has caused outrage after threatening to do just that. In a controversial Facebook post, Kim Christofi said she would allow unruly children ‘five lenient minutes’, before taking things into her own hands.
After receiving backlash from parents online, she joins us from her cafe in Felixstowe to explain all.
Also joining us is journalist and mother-of-three Heidi Scrimgeour who believes that Kim’s post was outrageous and that mothers should just stop judging each other and show a bit of solidarity!
Gorgeous blue eyes that I fell in love with
We meet the couple who fell in love during a whirlwind three-week romance that ended with them tying the knot together. But this isn't the story of two teenage sweethearts! No, the groom, who was just 17 on his wedding day, got hitched to a 71-year-old woman and met at her 43-year-old son's funeral.
They join us down the line from Nashville, Tennessee to recount their story of love - despite a whopping 53-year age gap.
