Money influencer Gemma Bird is on a mission to make it clear that saving is cool. Having built a successful Instagram page, she’s now written a book called Money Mum Official: Save Yourself Happy, and joins Richard and Judy to share some of her best money saving tips, including using apps to find deals and having a ‘no spend’ day every week.

This week’s read is by returning Book Club author Lisa Jewell. She’s written The Night She Disappeared, which traces the disappearance of a young mum and her boyfriend, leaving the girl’s distraught mother to bring up their baby son. Lisa explains how hearing someone say the words ‘boarding school’ was the inspiration for the novel, and why she doesn’t plan her plots ahead of time.
