ITV viewers baffled as Martin Lewis shares extreme food bill money saving hack

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Martin Lewis returned to our screens on Wednesday night to present another edition of his Extreme Savers series on ITV.

The Money Saving Expert shared tips from fans who go to major lengths to save money off their monthly bills.

Yaki, 48, from Surrey appeared on the latest episode to share her unique way she saves the pounds with viewers.

The mother revealed who she reduces her family's food bills by foraging, growing her own food in the garden and swapping food with neighbours.

She explained: "You don't have to spend a lot to eat well and live like a king.

"You don't have to spend a lot to eat well and live like a king."

The food she forages include dandelions, wild garlic and elderflower.

While Martin seemed impressed with her money saving technique, viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to share their opinion of Yaki's hack.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Am I the only one who thinks about the amount of dogs and well humans that would have ahem, relieved themselves on that stuff you're foraging?"

Another added: "Wouldn’t wanna use the loo after Yaki."

A third person posted: "Yeah nothing like pishy nettles to add a bit of flavour to your dinner" alongside a sick emoji.

While a fourth social media user said: "Wouldn't want to forage around my way Unless you like dog turds!"

Yuki told viewers: "We'll literally go on our bikes and go and enjoy the countryside and it's literally things that we notice.

"It's not about phones or iPads, it's about connecting with nature."

She also grows things she can't forage in her garden including parsley, sage and thyme along with tomatoes and pears.

However, Yuki offered a warning for anyone hoping to try this themselves.

"You need to 100 percent know what you're picking," she added.

"It can be really dangerous if you have a lookalike."

Also, Yuki stressed the importance of only taking a little bit or it could stop the products from growing again.

She added: "If you want the same patch here next year, you don't take it all."

As well as reaping the benefits of the countryside around her, she also grows items for free in her garden.

If there's still something she needs for her recipe, she'll still try to not go to the supermarket.

She turns to her trusty neighbours and trades different food products with them first.

The mum said she only spends around £20 a week at a supermarket for things like milk, cheese and eggs.

Over a year, Yuki calculated savings of a few hundred pounds.
