Will unarranged overdraft affect credit score?

Hopefully applying for a mortgage beginning of next year.

Stupidly forgot to change the standing order amount for my regular saver for my second bank account. Received a text to notify me, I paid off the full amount (£200) to bring me back into positive within about half an hour. 

Will this have effected my credit file?!

    Who knows?  But as your score is a randomly generated number produced for entertainment purposes only you do not need to worry about it.  

    As for your credit standing, no, this will not give you any issues.
