Naga Munchetty’s embarrassing blunder on BBC Breakfast

Yesterday’s edition of BBC Breakfast saw Naga suffered a blunder while the show was live on air.

Naga was presenting the show alongside her regular co-host Charlie Stayt when the incident happened.

The pair discussed a range of topics, including the story about New Zealand’s prime minister stepping down.

As they headed into a VT about Jacinda Ardern, Naga obviously didn’t realise that her mic was still on.

As footage of Ardern appeared onscreen, Naga could be heard saying: “I think it’s getting even colder in here…”

BBC Breakfast viewers react

However, that wasn’t the end of the blunder.

A more distant voice, probably a member of the crew, could then be heard saying: “I’ll turn it up.”

The audio blunder was then rectified and the VT continued without a hitch.

If Breakfast – and Naga – were hoping that no-one noticed, they were sadly disappointed.

Turn up the heat @BBCBreakfast!

“Brilliant! @TVNaga01 heard to say off camera I think it’s getting colder in ‘ere…

“Turn up the heat @BBCBreakfast!” one viewer tweeted.

@TVNaga01 chilly in the studio perchance?  get a brew in!” another tweeted the star.

Naga and Carol feud continues?

In other Breakfast-related news, Naga threw another playful jibe at Carol Kirkwood, just days after Carol denied rumours of a feud.

Naga’s jibe came during Carol’s presenting of the weather.

“Going to be another cold night, there’s going to be a risk of ice and once again, a widespread frost,” Carol said.

“But Charlie [Stayt] and Naga, things for most away from the south east are going to turn a bit milder as we go through the weekend,” she continued.

“You’re perfectly matched to the weather today, aren’t you? Like… frosty,” Naga then told her co-star.

“Thank you, Naga. That is more good luck than good planning I have to say,” Carol laughed.

“It looks lovely, Carol, thank you,” Naga said.
