Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’ wife Lara Lewington, 41, has faced a backlash over her “intimidating” coronavirus mask. Speaking to Naga Munchetty on BBC Radio 5 Live, the BBC presenter talked her through high-tech face masks but revealed that when she wore it on TV her fans likened her to a Batman villain.
I got quite a few tweets saying that I look like the comic book character Bane
Wife of Money Saving Expert Martin, 48, Lara took to the radio to disclose her high-tech mask findings with BBC presenter Naga Munchetty.
The tech journalist was reporting her findings back to the radio host, but revealed that one mask in particular made her look like a character from a comic book.
Naga asked curiously: “There’s one [mask] that cleans the air that you’re breathing, how does it do that?”
She continued: “Because there is that, say – I don’t eat cheese and onion crisps but if I was talking to someone who does eat cheese and onion crisps you can kind of smell the food you’ve eaten, can’t you, in the mask?”
Lara agreed with the host before introducing a face mask which cleans the air you’re breathing.
She said: “There can be that stale mask kind of smell I know exactly what you mean.”
However, before continuing with her review, Lara revealed her followers saw a likeness to Batman character Bane when she donned the high-tech garment.
Lara continued: “Now when I demonstrated this mask which filters the air and has UVC lights in it to help clean up the air that’s coming in and out, I wore it on TV and I got quite a few tweets saying that I look like the comic book character Bane.”
In Rolling Stone magazine, the director of the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan, revealed that the villain wears a mask as it “dispenses a type of anesthetic that keeps his pain just below the threshold so he can function.”
However, the BBC Click presenter’s mask is designed to protect the wearer from coronavirus while filtering the air.
After highlighting her likeness to the comic book villain when wearing the mask, Lara continued: “So this is quite a full on mask to have on your face.”
However, BBC host Naga quickly got her superheroes and villains confused.

She responded: “Is that the one out of Iron Man?”
Luckily for her, the tech savvy journalist knew the difference between her comic book characters and immediately corrected her.
Lara said: “He was in Batman, I’m no expert on this – my husband’s going to be mortified.
“It’s a very intimidating looking mask”.
Naga agreed: “Yes, it’s full on across the face and it’s got tubes coming out of it and things like that.”
Just days ago Martin revealed how Lara banned him from riding motorcycles when they became parents.
The revelation came as he spoke of the significance of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ Can’t Take My Eyes Off You for both him and Lara.
He explained to host Lauren Laverne at the time: “When we started going out, in the days when she would allow me to do this.
“I’m banned now since we had a child, I’m not allowed to ride a motorbike anymore.”
