BBC Breakfast’s Naga Munchetty takes playful swipe at co-star Charlie Stayt

BBC Breakfast’s Naga Munchetty takes playful swipe at co-star Charlie Stayt after fun interview with the Bocelli family

She was forced to quit the show last Friday, less than 20 minutes into the live broadcast.  

But Naga Munchetty returned to BBC Breakfast on Saturday and was on top form as she took a playful swipe at co-star Charlie Stayt.

The TV presenter, 47, made a sly dig after Charlie took part in a fun interview with the Bocelli family.

Charlie took a trip to meet the world famous tenor and his children Matteo and Virginia, who have released a family Christmas album.

The interview ended with Andrea trying to teach Charlie how to sing the opening of one of his songs.

Struggling to grasp the Italian language, Charlie opted to just sing the note instead, with Andrea cheekily saying: ‘I think you are a great journalist.’

They then cut back to the BBC studio, with Naga teasing: ‘That’s very generous of him to say you’re a great journalist.’ 

Charlie took it in his stride replying: ‘Wasn’t it just.’

The beginning of the week was anchored by regulars Jon Kay, 53, and co-host Sally Nugent, 51, due to Naga’s absence. 

Naga also confirmed on social media that she would not be hosting her BBC Radio 5 Live shows this week due to FIFA World Cup coverage.

When a fan asked on Twitter: ‘back on the radio tomorrow or still not well.. ?’ Naga explained she would be off for the week.

She replied: ‘No live programme on @bbc5live from me this week because of #FIFAWorldCup coverage X.’

On Friday, Naga’s co-host Charlie Stayt, 60, was unexpectedly left to present the remainder of the show on his own, after first believing Naga’s absence could be temporary.

For the period of time that Naga was on air, it seemed as though she was struggling with a sore throat. 

Following her departure, Charlie explained: ‘You may have noticed this morning, Naga has just stepped away from the sofa for a moment, with a slight struggle with her voice. So, we’ll see how that works out.’

However, Naga didn’t return to the sofa, with Charlie left to host the remainder of the show alone.

Where did she go? Naga was forced to quit Friday's show less than 20 minutes in due to losing her voice
