Martin Lewis joined Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in the This Morning studio to share his latest money saving tips with ITV viewers. However, the presenter walked off when he was told he wouldn’t be allowed to break social distancing rules after spotting a scrumptious chocolate cake segment later in the show.  

Introducing what’s coming up in the show, Phillip said: “It’s a no-fuss no-bake treats which taste like heaven.”

“Oh my gosh,” Holly commented and Phillip continued: “Donal Skehan will be showing you how to make this incredible chocolate whiskey cake just before 11.”

“If I’m in the studio does that mean I get to taste it,” Martin asked. 

“No I don’t think you’re allowed to, Covid, social distancing,” Phillip replied.

Getting up, Martin announced: “See you next week,” before walking off set. 

“Bye,” Holly exclaimed. “Phil and I are going to do money problems this week, good luck everyone.”

“Hold on tight!” Phillip joked as the Money Saving Expert returned to his spot on the sofa.

Taking to Twitter, those at home commented on the comical moment, with one writing: “Can see the headlines now “Martin walks off the set after a tense encounter on #ThisMorning.”

Another posted: “Martin Lewis is fuming and walks off after Holly and Phil make a dig at him” #thismorning.”

Whilst a third was more interested in the cake, stating: “That chocolate biscuit cake oh my days!#ThisMorning.

“Holly won’t be tasting any of that cake and you know it #ThisMorning,” a fourth remarked on the social media platform.

Martin kicked off his segment by clearing up confusion over international travel.

He said: “I was watching Prime Minister’s Question Time and let’s just say I wasn’t impressed with the structures of their answers. 

“Let me try and explain. What you have to understand is there are three different things you need to look at for every country.

“The first is the traffic light system that people know about. The traffic light system is not about whether you can go abroad, it’s about if you do abroad what do you have to do when you come home.

“You have green, you have to take a test but don’t quarantine, amber, quarantine for up to 10 days at home, red, 10 days in a hotel and you have to pay £1,750 for a single person.”

“That’s what the traffic light system is, there is then the Foreign Office Advisory for each destination,” he continued. 

“That is actually the legal advice from the Government about whether you can travel or not.

“Now the Government is saying don’t go on holiday in an amber zone but that’s not what it’s legally saying.

“Now it has to be said most amber countries the advice is against all but essential travel or against travel and that would legally, if you had travel insurance that covers you, mean you would get a pay out but not all amber countries have that advisory.”

This Morning airs on weekdays on ITV at 10am.
