Martin Lewis has shared an unpleasant experience involving a viewer who swore at him in front of his three-year-old daughter.
It comes after the Good Morning Britain discussed the shocking footage of Professor Chris Whitty being manhandled by a group of men in London.
Susana Reid and Martin discussed their experiences in the public eye, as the Money Saving Expert explained what he had endured when he politely declined to stop and chat to a viewer.
He was his daughter Sapphire in the park, who was three-years-old at the time.
The man started swearing at him and even walked after him down the street when the presenter tried to move away.

Martin said: “She was on my shoulders and I was walking along the road with her.
“A man came up to me and he says, ‘You’re the money guy, aren’t you?’ and I said, with a smile ‘Not today. I’m Daddy.’
“I’ve got my little girl and she gets very scared when people that we don’t know approach.”
The viewer said: “Well I just wanna ask you a question,” and Martin added, “I’m so sorry I’m on my way to the playground I really can’t do this right now. She gets a little bit intimidated.”
Martin added: “He started swearing at me and called me the ‘C’ word.
“I’m normally always happy to do it when people come and talk to me on the street. I always smile and answer a question unless I’m in a rush. I’m always polite but my little girl gets very scared.”
The Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident involving Professor Whitty, and said officers spoke to all those involved and took their details.
The actions of the men in the video were condemned by vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi and Labour MP Jess Phillips who issued a reminder that public figures ‘are human beings’.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
