Lord Alan Sugar, 74, has shared he would like to “punch” Martin Lewis, even though he admitted he has “no reason” for any animosity towards the presenter. The Apprentice star made the surprise revelation on Twitter today, after the Money Saving Expert founder confessed a stranger had called him a “c**t” in front of his daughter.

Lord Sugar shared an article on Martin where he had described the scary incident, during which he was harassed in the street.

In response to the revelation, the Apprentice star typed: “I often discuss with my wife about people’s faces you would like to punch for no real reason.

“I know it’s not fair, they may be perfectly nice people. 

“She has her list of faces. Martin Lewis is one of mine.

“He is most probably a nice guy. I am sure some people think the same about me,” he added.

Fans weighed in on Lord Sugar’s remarks, as they questioned why he would want to punch Martin.

One said: “As much as I’m enjoying Martin on GMB I do wish he would dial down his giddy meter. He was turned up to 10 this morning and 10 is the highest.”

Another replied: “Counter argument: Most grown-up people don’t have a ‘list of faces they would like to punch for no real reason’.”

A third replied: “What a weird thing to tweet.”

This week, Martin has stepped in to cover the ongoing empty seat on GMB left by former show host Piers Morgan.

During today’s episode, the financial expert and his co-host Susanna Reid discussed the shocking footage of Professor Chris Whitty being manhandled by a group of men while walking through St James’ Park, London.

Martin shared a similar experience he had endured when he politely declined to stop and chat to a viewer while taking his daughter Sapphire, who was three-years-old at the time, to the park.

He claimed the man started swearing at him and even walked after him down the street when the presenter tried to move away.

The money saving expert said on the programme: “She was on my shoulders and I was walking along the road with her. A man came up to me and he says, ‘You’re the money guy, aren’t you?’ And I said, with a smile, ‘Not today. I’m Daddy I’ve got my little girl and she gets very scared when people that we don’t know approach’.

“He says, ‘Well I just wanna ask you a question’ and I said, ‘I’m so sorry I’m on my way to the playground. I really can’t do this right now. She gets a little bit intimidated’.”

“He started calling me a name that begins with a C and he followed me down the road shouting at me, ‘You are…’ while my three-year-old is on my shoulders. And, ‘You’re nothing like you are on the telly, you’re all pretend’. And walked down the road with me.”

Susanna has worked alongside a number of co-hosts including Richard Madeley and Alastair Campbell since Piers Morgan sensationally quit the show back in March.

The Money Saving Expert founder, a guest contributor to the ITV show for many years, recently said he is “stoked” to be joining Susanna Reid as a presenter.

The consumer champion vowed to fairly hold “power to account” during his three-day stint in the hot seat from June 28 to June 30.

And if all goes well, it is thought that ITV bosses may offer him a longer run fronting the show, The Mirror reports.
