Martin Lewis has given a glimpse into the London home he shares with wife and their six-year-old daughter.
The Money Saving Expert, 47, has been providing the British public with vital updates following the coronavirus lockdown and revealed the temporary set-up for filming.
With the help of BBC Click presenter and his wife of 11 years Lara Lewington, 40, Martin has a state-of-the art home studio in a dedicated room that allows him to safely record episodes of his show for ITV.
Martin, who according to The Sunday Times Rich List is said to have a small fortune worth £128 million as of 2019, also provides answers to ITV viewers who call in with questions on This Morning phone-ins.
The money expert had been classed as an essential worker as he had been providing help for small businesses and the self-employed with help navigating the lockdown and the government packages that were on offer.
But Martin, who shared a snap of his empty office not so long ago, said he felt anxious travelling into work and returning home at the end of the day.

So instead he decided to set up his own home studio.
He wrote earlier this month on Twitter: "About to leave home for the first time in a week, to walk to the studio for my show.
"Genuinely feel anxious, been lucky to be able to stay home, in our safe bubble. Puts me in awe of NHS and other key workers out daily for the greater good."
He then joked: "As soon as I got in Mrs MSE asked me to take all my clothes off. Thought it must've been a really good show.
"Then she explained she wanted to me put everything in the wash as I'd been outside the house, and I should go shower."
Martin explained the decision to film from home was something they would never have considered as they like to keep their family life private.
Answering questions about an interview done via Skype with his home in the background, where he revealed that he had his gym gear on the bottom and a shirt on top.
Martin responded: "For years we've deliberately NEVER – done at home shoots – filmed at home – put our daughters pic online.
"I.e we keep our private space private. Covid's forced change."
In one shot of his home studio set-up there is a huge lit-up sign with the letter 'MLMS', Martin sits behind a desk with the hashtag of his name at the front as well as lighting and cameras to get the perfect shot.
The black background also has one wall which appears to be wallpapered in a print of office files.
Sharing the picture taken by his daughter he wrote: "Very strange working on my home office now it's permanently set up as a studio forb my show. PS thanks mini MSE for taking such a good photo PPS I am in my running gear, ready for exercise when I get time."

In another picture shared by his wife Lara, she showed her own mini studio set-up for her own BBC Click show, which showed a smaller light and camera.
A little more glam, Lara had added a plush black velvet chair flanked by two lamps on silver cloth tables.
The presenter joked: "WFH in our house: @itvMLshow downstairs, @BBCClick upstairs. I know @MartinSLewis has a bigger light, but it’s not a competition."
