Further details

On this episode:

Joe and the team show how AXA, one of the UK's largest insurance companies, has failed to record write offs correctly on second hand vehicles, leading to thousands of customers overpaying. Thanks to the work done by the show, the company has now promised to put things right, with refunds for anyone affected - which could total over £1 million.

Celebrity guest Scarlett Moffatt reveals her genius Nando's hacks which could in just a few minutes save £1.90 per visit. As Joe calculates "if you ate there twice a week for your entire life, based on the average UK adult life expectancy, you would save over £12,000."

Comedian Rosie Jones investigates disabled access in gyms, with one chain shockingly telling her "our gyms are not designed for disabled people."

Joe takes on toll road fines in Merseyside with the help of Atomic Kitten, Kim Woodburn, Craig Phillips and leads an open tour bus in a singalong of Toll Again.
