Martin Lewis has denied claims that he’s keen to take over as the full time host of Good Morning Britain.

The star, who began his guest presenting slot on the ITV show on Monday alongside Susanna Reid, said that while he’s enjoying the challenge, he’s always going to be focused on saving people money.

He added that he would actually turn down the spot if it were offered to him on a permanent basis because of his prior work commitments.

After coming off of the air, Martin was inundated with comments congratulating him on his debut.

But when asked by one of his followers on social media if he would accept the position if it were offered to him, the 49-year-old responded: “No. My role is saving people money.”

He continued: “I'm very flattered to have been asked to guest present. I enjoyed it today. And if the week goes well Id be happy to do holiday cover and pop back a few times a year yet my normal mission takes priority, so wouldn't/can't do it full time. :)”

The star, who also hosts his own ITV consumer show, also thanked his co-host Susanna and the rest of the Good Morning Britain team behind-the-scenes for welcoming him into the fold.

Martin wrote on Twitter: “My first of three @gmb guest presenting shifts this week done.”

He continued: “I hope it worked for you, bit of a baptism of fire @susannareid100 and the team very generous with their help and support.”

This comes after viewers praised Martin for his first episode, with many calling for him to be handed a more regular role.

One viewer said: “Only 20 minutes in, but Martin Lewis on #GMB seems a breath of fresh air?”

Another added: “I like Martin Lewis on @GMB stop faffing with other people and just give him the job.”

While a third commented: “I do like Martin Lewis on here, concise, clear, and asking pertinent questions. He’s a breath of fresh air #GMB ”

Martin is the latest presenter to take his seat behind the desk since Piers Morgan quit the show, following in the footsteps of Richard Madeley and Alastair Campbell.

Good Morning Britain is on weekdays from 6am on ITV
