GMB first aired on ITV on April 28, 2014.
Susanna Reid began the show by welcoming the audience to the new show by introducing the hosts and herself.
Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins, and Sean Fletcher all made appearances.
Erron Gordon, the Executive Creative Director and Head of Studio Output for News UK Broadcasting, has since been promoted.
On Twitter, some fans expressed their admiration for Erron’s dedication to the show.
“Way to go, Erron,” @twhutchings said.
I’ve enjoyed watching GMB grow and stay ahead of the pack.
“ITV is fortunate to have you.
Best of luck with the next chapter.”
“Erron you are a legend, pure and simple, and we will miss you xxx,” ITV news presenter @SallyBiddulph said.
Ben has also kept fans up to date on his painful knee surgery.
In light of his 482,000 followers, the Tipping Point host joked that his knee appeared “sad” and “deflated.”
He posted a video of himself exercising on a step platform.
Ben leapt from the fitness board, landing on one leg.
“A lot of people have asked how the knee is doing, so I thought I’d post a couple of clips,” he wrote.
