Your Money, This Week for 8th January 2021.
This is the first of a new regular Friday episode looking at the biggest personal finance and money news stories of the last seven days.
I’m joined for this one by Faith Archer (Much More With Less), and we look at topics including:
- whether parents can furlough in the new lockdown
- if it’s worth rushing to beat the stamp duty freeze deadline
- why Virgin Media’s price hike isn’t the first one we’ll see this year
- the proposed changes to leasehold rules
- just how much your CEO is getting paid compared to you
- whether “divorce day” is a real thing

Or watch here (from 12pm Friday)
