She’s known for her outspoken personality and no nonsense attitude, often causing a stir on air.

And Naga Munchetty appeared to be agitated by her BBC Breakfast co-host Charlie Stayt on Saturday morning – as she fumed at him while discussing an item on pigeons.

Tension: Naga Munchetty rolled her eyes at her BBC Breakfast co-host Charlie Stayt as the presenters suffered an awkward blunder live on air on Saturday morning

The pair covered a story on a missing homing pigeon named Bob from Guernsey, who was found 4,000 miles away in Alabama.

But as the duo discussed birds during the segment, it jogged their memory of an old song – of which they tried to recall the name.

While Charlie was convinced it was ‘Catch the pigeon’, Naga argued that it was ‘Stop the pigeon’.

Taking to the BBC Breakfast desk’s keyboard, the latter decided to search the song online to prove her co-host wrong.
