MARTIN LEWIS, the host of self-titled Money Show, spoke of a “strange” situation on Twitter this morning, which saw him head to work while his wife Lara Lewington went to hospital on her own.
TV star Martin Lewis has revealed that he isn’t able to be with his wife in hospital today as she undergoes shoulder surgery. The 48-year-old financial journalist said it felt “strange” to be heading to work as normal as his spouse – Lara Lewington – headed for surgery on her own.
Martin spoke about the difficult situation on Twitter.
He wrote online, in view of his one million followers: “Strange leaving home today to walk to the studio, as Mrs MSE (@LaraLewington) is off to hospital for a shoulder op.”
The television host continued: “I’m not allowed to go with her in current climes, but ‘ll race from the studio tonight to pick her up (luckily it coincides with release time) happy & healthy I hope.”
“Not easy Martin. Very strange and worrying times,” one follower wrote in the comments section of the post.

“Hope she recovers quickly. A few months ago I had to sit in a hospital car park for 4 hours whilst my wife was in A&E. Was horrible not being able to go in with her,” another added following a similar situation.
A third social media user added: “Hope all goes well and safely for Lara on the operation and for Martin on the show.”
The father-of-one’s programme, The Martin Lewis Money Show: Live is on air tonight at 8.30pm.

Lara, a fellow TV star who co-presents BBC technology show Click, spoke about the operation on her Instagram account last night.
Alongside a picture of herself on the set of her show, the 41-year-old wrote on the picture-sharing site: “This week’s show shot, ahead of shoulder surgery tomorrow (AAAHHH!).
“Not sure if I’ll be up to filming next week, but if I am, expect a sling and bedraggled hair.”
The mum-of-one later took to Twitter to thank her followers for their well wishes.
The presenter, who shares an eight-year-old daughter with Martin, re-shared her husband’s post with her 42,900 followers.
“Thanks for all the lovely responses,” she wrote online, before adding: “looking forward to having two fully functioning shoulders again!
“Entertainment suggestions welcomed – it’s gotta be trashy or true, or both,” she signed asking for film and TV recommendations.
