Why isn't The Martin Lewis Money Show Live on tonight? The programme is missing from the usual Thursday night ITV schedule.

There has been a shake up to TV programmes this week with the soaps being shelved to make way for the FA cup prompting viewers to ask 'why isn't EastEnders on tonight?'. It's even affected Coronation Street and Emmerdale.

Martin Lewis, who has been giving energy pricing advice, is a regular expert on ITV daytime shows including This Morning and has even hosted Good Morning Britain replacing Piers Morgan, but his usual telly spot has been taken over this week.

Why isn't The Martin Lewis Money Show Live on tonight?

The Martin Lewis Money Show Live is not on tonight (Thursday 3rd March) because last Thursdays show was the last in the current series. So because the series has come to an end, ITV is showing the FA cup football match as Everton take on Boreham Wood at Goodison Park.

ITV has been moving its shows to make way for the coverage and aside from the soaps, but while Martin Lewis' series isn't affected because it had already wrapped filming its Thursday night live, there is one additional show next week to mark the series finale.

Last week he did a student finance special but next week there is a bonus show and it is a Cost of Living Crisis special.
