Naga Munchetty, 45, has opened up on a situation at the BBC Breakfast Studios that left one viewer feeling empathetic toward her co-host Charlie Stayt. The BBC Breakfast fan tweeted that she felt “sorry” for Charlie as he did not appear to have a laptop by his side, unlike Naga.
They tweeted: “I feel somewhat sorry for Charlie, how come @TVNaga01 has a laptop by her side but he hasn’t.”
Naga responded: “He has one under the desk x.”
The broadcaster enjoyed a well-deserved day off from work duties as Rachel Burden stepped in for the star on BBC Breakfast today.
Naga usually presents the show alongside Charlie from Thursday to Saturday, while Dan Walker and Louise Minchin host from Monday to Wednesday.

Before she could finish her question, Naga excitedly interrupted, adding: “Oh, Oh.”
Annie continued: “When you walked out on that dance floor live for the very first time, please tell me you weren’t a tiny bit nervous?”
Louise jokingly responded: “She’s going to say no isn’t she.”
Naga replied: “No, I’m trying not to swear, I’m trying not to use bad language, I was absolutely bricking it, absolutely bricking it and you do, [it] way out of my comfort zone.
“You never have enough time to rehearse and learn.
“You’re learning in a completely different way and one thing I learned from Strictly is the way my mind works.”
She revealed how tough she found learning the dances on the programme as her mind is often overwhelmed from working in the newsroom.
At work, Naga said she would often absorb facts on the spot, but past “10 o’clock” she would struggle to remember them.
