Martin Lewis: ‘Death of my mum was the end of my childhood’
Money saving expert Martin Lewis has opened up about the death of his mother, who died in a car accident just three days before his 12th birthday.
He told 5 live’s Tony Livesey, who lost his own mother when he was 13, he “cried every day” until he was 15 and then “became brittle”.
Martin is now a patron of the charity Grief Encounter, which helps children through bereavement, and he says people should be there to talk to and have a conversation with someone dealing with grief.
“Do not shirk away from it. Don’t force them to talk about it.”
