Martin’s career in journalism began when he became a producer for the BBC Business Unit, working on the BBC Radio Five Live business programmes.
The Wright Stuff regular then moved to Simply Money, which was hosted by Angela Rippon, where he claimed his “Money Saving Expert” persona.
Martin originally created his website MoneySavingExpert.com back in 2003.
