Martin Lewis was awarded an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) back in 2014. He received the accolade for his services to consumer rights and to charitable services through his Money Saving Expert Charity Fund.

And now, the financial journalist has spoken about his chances of receiving a knighthood.

The 48-year-old claimed “it’s not going to happen,” when a fan reached out to him on Twitter.

Martin admitted that he was flattered by the support but dismissed any suggestion of becoming a Sir.

“Is it not about time @MartinSLewis gets a knighthood for his services to the public regarding finance #MartinLewis,” one fan wrote on the micro-blogging site yesterday.

“Wow! Huge amount of likes. How v kind,”(sic) the father-of-one replied.

However he quickly shut down the suggestion.

“It’s not going to happen – I think their focus is more on big biz & civil service – but its moving to know so many people who really count’d support it! Thank you.

“PS tho I do like thought of Lara being triple alliterated,”(sic) Martin went on to tell his 1.1. million followers.

Martin is married to fellow television presenter Lara Lewington.

The 41-year-old BBC star would become Lady Lara Lewington if her husband was to become a Sir.

“Adore an alliteration,” one person wrote in the comments section of the post.
