Martin Lewis, 49, stepped in as Susanna Reid’s co-host for three days on the ITV show. A series of presenters have sat alongside the main anchor following Piers Morgan’s departure in March. The finance expert has now taken to Twitter to thank his fans for their support.
In view of his 1.1 million followers, he wrote: “Thanks to (almost) all of you for your support on @gmb week.
“It’s a privilege to step out of my usual subject area.”
The presenter went on to praise Susanna for being an “incredible generous and supportive” co-presenter.
He also thanked the team for looking after him behind-the-scenes.
BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, 44, commented on his post to ask how he coped with the early morning starts.
He replied: “I really enjoyed it. Thanks for asking. But… back knotted due to lack of sleep.
“Its quite tough to do, then to go to work at MSE afterwards. You are made of sterner stuff than me.
“PS Ben [Shephard] & I should take you and Naga [Munchetty] on at golf (handicaps in play) as a ‘grudge match’.”
Piers left the show in March after sparking 57,000 Ofcom complaints for comments he made about Meghan Markle.
The latter and Prince Harry made a series of revelations in what was deemed a “bombshell” interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan said she felt suicidal during her time in the Royal Family and also claimed an unnamed member had concerns about the colour of son Archie’s skin.
The following day, Piers said he didn’t believe a word the Duchess of Sussex said in the interview.

After his departure from the show, he told press he still had the same views.
A series of presenters have since stood in for the host, including Richard Madeley and Ben Shephard.
Following his debut on the show this week, Martin told viewers he wouldn’t be up for taking the role full-time, but hoped to be back.
He said: “It’s been a wonderful, refreshing change to be outside my normal subject which I love and I will be going back to.
“To have a platform here and to come and do this, maybe you’ll have me back for a few days.
“I don’t want the gig permanently. But to come back for a few days would be lovely.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
