This Morning presenter shake-up as Martin Lewis drops exit hint: 'I'm not qualified!'


The This Morning hosts spoke to a number of famous faces today including former Countdown numbers whizz Carol Vorderman who was talking about homeschooling.

They were also joined by Esther Rantzen who was on to talk about the heartbreaking death of Dame Vera Lynn, who sadly died this morning at the age of 103.

Elsewhere on the show, Holly and Phillip wanted to hear from viewers who were having money issues during the lockdown and those who might not feel secure in their jobs whilst on furlough. 

Martin Lewis was on hand to answer the questions and Phillip read: “James said: ‘I am on furlough and received an email from my company saying that I must take 10 days of my holiday starting immediately.

“’I have not been given notice to take my holidays and I am aware the company is making redundancies.

“’If I am made redundant in July, does this mean the company is trying to avoid paying holidays?'” Phillip concluded the viewer’s question. 

Martin – who tries his best to answer every question – was unable to on this occasion. 

He said: “Ok, this is a question for an employment lawyer and I do suggest you get an employment lawyer on this show.

“So if they are telling you today you need to take ten days, they should have given you 20 days so that’s not fair as you rightly pointed out.

“As for what you do about it, you dispute it and go to a tribunal over it which Citizens Advice might be able to help on there.

“The problem is you think you are going to be made redundant, if you do take the holiday then yes you are not going to get the same money once you have been made redundant.

“That should cover your holiday pay so if you think you have nothing to lose here because your job isn’t carrying on then I would strongly dispute that you are being made to take a holiday they don’t have a right to do it,” Martin continued. 

“When you get your redundancy you get your notice in lieu, you get any holidays you are entitled to and you’re redundancy pay, which is complex and depends on your contract.

“So, yes I think your assumption is right and if you are made redundant they are trying to avoid giving you that in redundancy pay, and because they haven’t given you enough notice they shouldn’t be able to do it.

“So, get advice from someone qualified.”

This Morning airs on ITV weekdays at 10am.
