Naga tells BBC co-star pull yourself together as they replace Charlie

Naga Munchetty tells Ben Thompson to ‘pull yourself together’

Naga Munchetty usually hosts BBC Breakfast alongside Charlie Stayt from Thursday to Saturday.

However, her co-host was notably absent from the iconic red sofa on Friday morning and instead, Ben Thompson joined her.

Charlie’s absence was not brought up by the hosts but Naga and Ben had good camaraderie with one another as they joked about his reaction to a segment on football shirts.

Auctioneer Charles Hanson was sent eight football shirts from the 1990 World Cup, which had been collected from each of the teams England played against.

It also featured Peter Shilton’s top from the semi-final which saw England defeated.

The collection was sent in by a former footballer to sell and it was revealed they could fetch £300,000.

The report came to an end with a close up of each of the shirts as Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma played in the background.

Back in the studio, Ben commented: “I feel quite emotional just hearing the music, I don’t know why, there’s something about it.

“But £300,000 there for just eight shirts, possibly £300,000.”

Naga replied: “Pull yourself together, it’s time to get the news, travel and weather.”

Elsewhere on the show, Naga also mocked Ben when he said he often gets confused by meal deal offers in supermarkets.

Following a business report on special prices in supermarkets for loyalty card holders, Ben said: “My biggest bug bear is when you do a meal deal and you end up with something that’s not in the meal deal, which means you end up paying full price for everything.”

Naga sighed: “Just look for the label which says it’s part of the meal deal. Come on! You’ve got to worry.”

Ben laughed: “Well, I’ve learned my lesson.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One from 6am.
