The presenter said that her temporary Good Morning Britain co-host "brings a whole new energy to the programme".
Morgan is standing in for Ben Shephard on the ITV breakfast show this week.
Speaking on Loose Women, Reid said: "It's fantastic working with him but he's a force of nature.
"It's like sitting next to a mini tornado and I think whenever anyone gets interviewed by him, they feel like they've been through a tornado!
"You should see the looks on guests' faces after they've been interviewed by Piers. They're like, 'What just happened?!'"
She continued: "It's a real privilege working with him though. He's been there, done it. It's incredible the kind of career he's had.
"It's fantastic and he brings a whole new energy to the programme and I am very much looking forward to working with him again tomorrow, »
During his first day he also interviewed Labour's shadow chancellor Ed Balls, referring to him as Darth Vader and telling him that he is "allowed to laugh".
He also showed his cheeky side. After Reid commented that Zac Efron is the "wrong age bracket" for her, he replied: "That's not what I've heard".
Morgan didn't appear to batter an eyelid when guest Alain Robert dropped an F-bomb, leaving Reid to apologise for the bad language.
Later in the show, he noted that Gmb was the number five trending item in Britain, before adding: "Not sure it's for the right reasons, »

Apologies for the slightly colourful language used by Alain on the show this morning.

Morgan said: "I'm very excited to be joining Susanna and the Gmb team for a week.
"Thanks to my 3-year-old daughter's sleeping pattern, I've been waking up at 4am for quite a while now. So the early starts shouldn't present any problem."
I'm guest-hosting @Gmb with @susannareid100 for a week from April 13. So you will all get to wake up with me, you lucky devils.

Piers Morgan will guest host 'Good Morning Britain' in April. The former 'Britain's Got Talent' judge will step in to present the ITV weekday programme from April 13 to April 17 alongside regular host Susanna Reid while Ben Shephard is away, as fellow host Charlotte Hawkins is still on maternity leave. The popular breakfast show - which launched last year - airs between 6am and 8.30am, although Piers joked the early mornings should not be a problem for him because he has a young daughter, Elise, who frequently wakes him up at the crack of dawn. He said: ''I'm very excited to be »

The report added that the BBC must keep in check "what it gets for the money it pays »
Interviewing attractive chaps is all part of a day's work for Susanna Reid.
And while she's usually very professional and manages to keep it together, sometimes she lets a steely blue eye or a muscled bicep get the better of her. And really, who can blame her?
After that David Beckham interview this morning, Digital Spy looks at the other times Susanna's lost her cool...
1. Luke Evans
"I'm not sure we can broadcast this," warned Susanna, before she exposed her neck to all and sundry.
In response to the question "What's it like when you go in for the big bite?" - which is frankly a bit much to hear over your Cheerios - Dracula Untold star Luke Evans leaned over to Susanna and nuzzled into her neck. She yelped and then exclaimed: "That was quite nice actually! Thanks so much!"
2. Alex Turner
To be fair to Susanna, Alex Turner »
Susanna Reid is living with tinnitus. The 'Good Morning Britain' host has had the hearing condition - a painful ringing in the ears, which is a symptom of noise-induced hearing loss - for 10 years since she gave birth to her son Finn. Discussing the condition on her breakfast TV show, she revealed: ''When I first started hearing it, which is probably about 10 years ago, I became quite distressed that I'd never hear silence again.'' Susanna has learnt to manage the condition but decided to share her story with viewers to highlight Tinnitus Awareness Week. The 44-year-old presenter - who has three sons, »
