BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty brands co-stars her 'rivals' – and instantly regrets it | The Sun

BBC BREAKFAST'S Naga Munchetty branded co-stars her "rivals" – and then immediately backtracked in the awkward exchange.

Naga, 47, was chatting to fellow presenter Jo Whiley about the music festival Glastonbury, which kicks off today, when she made the blunder.


She referred to her BBC colleagues as "rivals", but instantly regretted it and changed it to the word "colleagues".

"Who else do you want but Jo Whiley there presenting for the BBC?" Naga said.

"I was talking with our rivals," she told Jo, before quickly adding: "Not rivals – our colleagues, I should say!"

Jo, 56, responded: "I'm glad I'm talking to you as well then!"

Naga went onto reveal that she had never attended the festival – with Jo saying it's "the most extraordinary experience" for all ages.
