Naga Munchetty addressed Martin Lewis after the Good Morning Britain stand-in offered to take on the BBC Breakfast presenters. It comes after Dan Walker quizzed the financial guru about his time on the ITV morning programme.
Martin had joined Susanna Reid this week as he stepped into Piers Morgan’s former role on GMB.
Taking to Twitter, the finance expert reacted to Dan who questioned his appearance on the programme, in view of his 1.1 million followers.
It comes after Martin tweeted: “Thanks to (almost) all of you for your support on @gmb week. It’s a privilege to step out of my usual subject area. @susannareid100 is an incrediblely generous & supportive co-presenter behind the scenes and the team have looked after me well making it so much easier.”
Alluding to the early starts, Dan replied: “Glad you enjoyed it, Martin. How did your brain/body cope?”
The money-saving expert reacted to the Breakfast host’s query, before hinting at a show rivalry, as he light-heartedly suggested a “grudge match” with Naga.
Martin replied: “I really enjoyed it. Thanks for asking. But… back knotted due to lack of sleep. It’s 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 on at golf (handicaps in play) as a ‘grudge match’.”
Not one to shy away from the challenge, it didn’t take long for Naga to respond.
“Deal. Come on @TVNaga01… let’s get it sorted,” Dan agreed.
In view of her 258,000 followers, Naga replied: “Always up for a challenge.”
The Breakfast presenter is known for being an avid golf fan and often recounts tales on the BBC programme.
She recently dished on the moment she ended up in tears after a round of golf.

Speaking to sports presenter Mike Bushell, Naga opened about an incident.
“I remember playing at a course with water and I think I sent five balls into the water. The air was obviously blue, but I cried,” recalled the presenter.
Mike then asked her: “So you had to move on?”
“I was in a competition, you had to score and there was no other way than getting it over,” continued Naga.
“Oh dear,” sighed Mike. “I sure there will be a lot of golfers out there with you.”
“I think it’s got to be a good thing that the water is there,” chimed in Charlie Stayt. “It keeps you on your metal, doesn’t it? That’s the whole point.”
Naga replied: “I think once it goes in once, you just have it in your head. You don’t think, ‘Oh the ball is going to go in the water’, you can’t play golf like that. But once the ball goes in, that doubt creeps in.”
BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
