Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt are regular fixtures on BBC Breakfast alongside Dan Walker, Louise Minchin, Carol Kirkwood, Sally Nugent and Jon Kay. The 45-year-old has now addressed a Twitter user, who quizzed the presenter about her colleague’s mannerisms during today’s broadcast.

The person in question wrote: “@TVNaga01 ‘Up for it?’ ‘…No.’

“Honestly, Charlie being uncomfortable is my Thursday to Saturday.”

The cheeky comment caught Naga’s attention as she took the opportunity to respond.

In view of her 225,000 followers, the broadcaster replied: “Mine too,” followed by laughing face emojis.

It comes after the BBC Breakfast pair had addressed sports presenter Mike Bushell, who had just wrapped up his segment.

Speaking on the show, Naga asked her co-star if he would take up cycling for Tour de France, after it was revealed cyclists could take to the skies by having their bikes attached to cable cars.

As Mike admitted he would like to take part, as would Naga, she then quizzed Charlie.

He replied: “It’s too dangerous.”

“I’d love to do that. I’ll drag Charlie along. Up for it?” Naga asked.

Charlie staunchly replied: “No.”

It’s not uncommon for Naga to regularly update her viewers on social media about her work while referencing colleagues.

Earlier this week, the small-screen star joked that Charlie always asks for a “new presenter”.

A fan questioned: “@TVNaga01 Charlie keeps a perfectly straight face no matter what you wind him up about! Has he ever asked for a new co presenter?”

Naga replied: “He always asks!” followed by laughing-face emojis.

Elsewhere, the TV anchor was praised online after her emotional interview with Sir Captain Tom Moore.

It comes after the World War Two veteran set up a foundation for people with mental health problems in memory of his wife.

Captain Tom explained that when his spouse Pamela was in a care home she of course had him as a visitor.

He explained: “But some people… well most of the people were ladies. They were really, weary poor old things. But nobody ever came to see them.”

Viewers flocked to comment on the clip, as one person said: “An astounding man.

“@TVNaga01 was so gentle and compassionate in asking those questions. Naga, how on earth did you manage to stop your voice doing a wobble?”

Another person commented: “It brought tears to my eyes. I think Naga was holding them back too. A beautiful interview. Well done BBC.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
