The MoneySavingExpert founder gave Brits some relationship advice on the Martin Lewis Money Show Live this week. He revealed how unmarried couples were missing out.

He said if something happened there is no legal protection and it could leave the situation entirely in the hands of the government.

Martin said: "If you've got assets, do a will, that way you decide where the money goes. A special point to anyone who is co-habiting, you're not married, you're not a civil partner.

"If you have been living together for 30 years and you've got nine children, it still means nothing in the law when it comes to a will. Your partner wouldn't get anything."

The MSE expert also urged those who were married to make sure they know what their will said, particularly if they were separated from their spouse and with a new partner.

He warned if you were married to one person but separated and in a relationship with someone else, then an old will could leave the new lover high and dry.

Martin claimed everywhere in the UK besides Scotland revokes your will when you get married and some people might not know that.

Dying without a will could also cause some issues, as Martin gave the example of someone passing away in England without writing out what they wanted to give to their nearest and dearest.

It comes as Martin said parents of kids aged 12-21 could get £1,000 with one simple check. The money guru said parents could have cash stashed away in a Child Trust Fund that has been forgotten about.
