Naga Munchetty hits back at driver as she narrowly avoids being ‘run over’ near BBC studio | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty, 47, has taken to Twitter to mischievously hit back at a fan, whose trip to Manchester almost caused disastrous results for the pair of them. The social media user, StephenM, admitted he had narrowly avoided hitting Naga with his car while out and about in the city for the weekend.
He penned yesterday: “In Manchester for the weekend and nearly ran over @TVNaga01.”
After spotting the fan’s confession, Naga cheekily fired back in view of her 270,000 followers: “Thanks for the safe driving! X.”
Explaining his error, StephenM wrote back: “Trying to find the Lowry carpark and not looking where I was going. Have a great weekend.”
It wasn’t long before Naga’s fans took to the comments section of the pair’s exchange to share their thoughts on the scary near-miss.
However, Naga instead told BBC Breakfast viewers: “Three-times Wimbledon champion Boris Johnson has just spent his first night in prison.
“He was sentenced for two-and-a-half years for hiding assets to avoid paying debts.”
Naga wasn’t corrected on her error by her co-hosts Ben Thompson and BBC sports reporter Mike Bushell, as the trio proceeded with the broadcast as normal.
Despite not being called out for her mishap on-air, many viewers flocked to Twitter to laugh about Naga’s slip of the tongue.
