Money Saving Expert founder Martin Lewis, 49, was quick to tease his ITV co-star Eamonn Holmes, 61, over his 1991 show Check it Out. Martin, who fronts The Martin Lewis Money Show on ITV, spotted the similarities between Eamonn’s programme and his own current affairs series, in which he shares his top money-saving tips alongside co-host Angellica Bell.

It comes after Eamonn shared a clip from his old show, which he hosted with Jacqui Barkley.

The This Morning host wrote alongside it in view of his one million Twitter followers: “Half a lifetime ago …. Check it Out . 

“That’s not only a request , it was the actual name of yhe programme.”(sic)

In the clip, Eamonn introduced the programme to viewers by saying: “Hello there, you’re very welcome to Check it Out.

“The programme that brings you the best in consumer and lifestyle advice.”

Jacqui then explained: “And together we’ll be giving you tips on how to be a better shopper, live more healthily, and generally make better use of your free time.”

After watching the short throwback video, Martin aimed a lighthearted swipe at Eamonn over “trying to nick his job”.

The ITV presenter penned: “Love it. Were you trying to nick my job?” alongside a smiley face emoji.


Eamonn spotted Martin’s response and was quick to quip: “U probably weren’t even born !”(sic)

Martin and Eamonn often exchange banter as they regularly work together on This Morning.

Martin previously warned This Morning viewers about a Royal Mail text scam after Eamonn revealed he’d been targeted.

Back in July, Martin joined Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford on the ITV daytime show to advise a viewers who had been scammed, but told by her bank that she wouldn’t be able to get the money back.

Martin told the viewer to contact the Independent Financial Ombudsman, before discussing the Royal Mail scam which had been affecting many people in the UK at the time.

Fraudsters had been trying to access personal details from mobile phone users by sending them a text impersonating the Royal Mail, telling them they have a parcel which needs to be paid for.

Detailing a text he received from the scammers, Eamonn said: “It says your package has been held and not been delivered due to a £1.99 unpaid shipping fee.

“To pay this now visit…and then they say deposit/delivery fee.com.”

He added: “No idea! Who do you phone? Who do you get in touch with?”

Helping Eamonn, Martin clarified: “That’s the scam. That is a very well known scam. It’s not just Royal Mail, it’s DPD and other delivery companies.

“When they get you to pay that charge, you’re effectively going to give them your bank details and it’s a route into scamming you.

“Certainly, unless you absolutely are sure you’ve ordered a parcel and it’s coming from that company, do not touch those texts that ask you to pay.

“They deliberately do a small amount of money so people think it isn’t much to catch them and bring them in.”
