Naga Munchetty slaps down BBC Breakfast co-star live on air telling him 'we don't do that' | The Sun

BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty slapped down co-host Ben Thompson after he suggested she sing live on the show.

The BBC One presenting duo were discussing how Kate Bush's iconic hit, Running Up That Hill, has reached the top spot in the charts after being included in Netflix series Stranger Things.

On its release back in 1985, its highest place in the chart was the third spot.

Ben told how its comeback on the TV show's soundtrack had garnered "a whole new generation of fans."

As the camera flipped back to the pair sitting on the sofa Naga, dressed in a summery aqua coloured dress with striped neckline, mused: "It's one of those songs where when you say the title, you have to do it in the intonation of the same way it's sung."

Her co-host urged her: "Go on, how does that go?" to which she replied: " Running up that hill … you wouldn't say …"

He then interjected: "Oh, I thought you were going to sing it!"

BBC Five Live host Naga then flashed a scowl as she bluntly retorted: "No.

"We don't do that, we don't do that."

Linking to the weather presenter, Naga continued to make her point and said: "Sarah, we don't do that do we?"

Ben could only be left giggling as the aftermath of his comments played out.

Previously, Naga was slammed after an "awkward" exchange with a reporter live on air.

On Friday, the TV presenter and her co-host Charlie Stayt could be seen encouraging Andrew Plant to strip down and go for a swim.

Andrew had headed down to Clevedon, Somerset, to meet with sunshine seekers enjoying the hot weather on Friday morning.

Dressed in a shirt and shorts, he interviewed swimmers dipping into the cold seawater to cool off as temperatures soar across the UK.

"It will be the hottest day of 2022," Andrew concluded, as he linked back to Naga, 47, and Charlie, 59, in the BBC studio.

However, his co-star Charlie replied to a confused-looking Andrew: "Andrew, I don't think we're quite finished yet, are we?

"There's been an Instagram poll for BBC Breakfast viewers this morning suggesting that in order we fully understand how lovely it is down there that you should take a dip in.

"I know you have done it before so it just feels like part of the story."

"Unless you want to see my crying on TV, you don't want to see me going in that water," Andrew replied, adamant he wasn't going in.

Naga hit back: "But Andy, we do [want to see]. We've got time. We've been given loads of time for you to do it. We're happy to wait."
