5th August 2023

NAGA Munchetty today slammed one of her BBC Breakfast co-stars in an awkward on air moment.

The news anchor, 47, is known for her cheeky on-air quips, and today was no different.

This morning Naga was hosting her usual slot alongside Charlie Stayt, 61.

But she was left unimpressed when weather presenter Simon King gave a breakdown of today's forecast.

Storm Antoni has meant that people around the UK have been facing heavy rain and wind, and he admitted that the bad weather will be here to stay for a few more days.

But Naga was unhappy with this prediction, and said: "Someone is going to lift that gloom for us.".

Charlie then joked: "Is it him?" pointing over to Simon in the corner.

She replied: "Oh I say that, because I have such faith in you Simon, but then I see what you're bringing me," referencing a picture of a rainy residential street.

Simon responded: "And then I start with this lovely picture", as they joked that the flowers in people's gardens would be happy with the rain.

He continued: "It's British summertime, there you go."

Naga replied: "This is so much better", as she pointed at the screen and added: "It's so much better than when you started."

Simon then chimed in: "Oh good, only the positive stuff, but it is only a brief warm, dry spell, so we're not talking about it getting better at the end of this and being better for a few weeks, it is going to be a short time only."

An umimpressed Naga quickly hit back: "I was trying to bring some optimism to the room and you just stamped on it."

Simon apologised as he said: "Sorry, yeah sorry I did but it will be positive because it will be nicer than it has been so far," as the presenters took the show back over again.
