Martin Lewis mother's death

The Money Saving Expert founder lost his mother Susan Lewis when he was just 12 years old after she was killed in a car crash.

Martin told the Daily Star: “It was all very sudden. None of us expected it. It’s still something I don’t like talking about. It’s too painful to talk about.

“It affects me now. It affects me deeply. It affects me in my day-to-day life. It’s one of the building blocks of who I am.

He added: “I close my eyes and pray that my little girl never goes through the pain that I went through. I sit there and think, ‘Just let me be around until she’s 20’. That’s really important to me.”
