He's a man who knows a thing or two about saving some serious cash and Martin Lewis has revealed his top Black Friday deals for 2019.

The money-saving expert has identified the stores and websites that he thinks will be offering the biggest discounts as the country braces itself to go bargain hunting crazy on Friday, November 29.

Black Friday, as many things have, first went big in America but has now become a huge deal on British soil too. Brisk business is set to be done in shopping centres and supermarkets the length and breadth of the country as well as online as many people avoid the madness and shop for great deals from the comfort of their own home.

Martin Lewis revealed his predictions for Black Friday and the festive season on the ITV Money Show using a forecaster tool, reports the Mirror  .

He said: “If you’re already shopping around for an item, now is the time to start bargain hunting. If you see a deal on it then buy it, but if you weren’t looking for it already, don’t fall for it.”

Martin's tips come hot on the heels of him revealing his 'shopping mantra' for Black Friday.

The deals Martin advises you to look out for in the run-up to Christmas are...

Ikea:Buy a £29 Christmas tree and you'll get a £20 voucher to spend in stores and online between January and February 2019.

Ryanair:  The budget airline has already started its festive sale, however Martin said bookers can expect a £5 sale in the very near future.
