We're always after ways we can save money, but never more so than now.

So, with that in mind we sought the advice of a lawyer, to find out where we could legally tighten the purse strings without impacting our time in isolation.

The good news is that it turns out that there's a really simple way of doing so, and it's all to do with our TV package.

Financial advisor and director of The City & Capital Group Victoria Hicks explains that we could all be saving on our sports channels right now.

'Review your TV package,' Victoria advises. 'There’s no live sport on at the moment, so can you pause that – Sky Direct is being open and allowing users to pause.'

So, how do I cancel my Sky Sports subscription?

Sky Sports is most famous for showing Premier League football and Formula 1 racing - but both of these are currently suspended for at least a month.

Due to this, Sky are allowing customers to pause their subscription without any cost, though you will still need to pay for the rest of your bundle.

To do this, you can call 0800 151 2747, say 'cancel Sky Sports' and it will ask if you wish to pause your Sky Sports subscription.

Alternatively, you can visit Sky's website and follow the instructions.

However, it's worth noting that, sadly this option is only for Sky customers with Virgin Media currently not giving their subscribers the option to pause.
