THIS Morning expert Martin Lewis swore on the show today during an impassioned rant about online scammers.

The 48-year-old money guru, the victim of internet swindlers himself, fumed: “I think these s***es are outrageous.”

He was answering a question from a viewer who had been tricked out of nearly £100 when she tried to renew her driving license.

Dawn asked: “Have I been scammed? I renewed my driving license. When I got to the payments section it took me to another site where I paid £14 but instead they took £93.

“I contacted the DVLA and they told me it’s nothing to do with them. I’m over 70 years old and I feel like I’m being scammed.

He explained: “I call these sites shyster sites. They are quasi-legal” – explaining they have paid to be at the top of search engine search results.

They then process things like driving licenses, which cost very little, for an often much higher price.

Martin explained: “Have you been scammed? Legally, probably not. Morally? Certainly, in my view.

“I think these s***es are outrageous. That’s why I call them shysters. Quasi-legal. That’s not a swear word there so we’re fine.”

Phillip was then heard murmuring about having to apologise but giggled: “No, don’t worry. Roll it back.”

It seems Martin was trying to say ‘sites’ and ‘shysters’ at the same time leading to the unfortunate outburst.
