BBC Breakfasts Naga Munchetty takes swipe at co-star with offensive nickname
BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty left her co-presenter Charlie Stayt unimpressed after offending him with a horrific nickname.
Munchetty and Stayt were presenting the BBC morning show on Thursday (October 26). During the show, reporter Ben Boulos was broadcasting live from a pumpkin park in Harpenden reporting on the economic boom of Halloween.
Whilst reporting from the pop-up farm, Ben invited Charlie and Naga to play a game to test the presenters' knowledge of pumpkins and the family of vegetables they come from. These are known as cucurbits and can include anything from pumpkins to butternut squash.

Ben decided to put the presenting pair's recognition skills to the test, lining up a number of the rooted vegetables. He invited the pair to guess whether they could work out the difference between pumpkins and squash.
Naga immediately took to the challenge like a duck to water, being able to discern a Musquee de Provence as a squash. Charlie on the other hand, struggled to get off the mark, incorrectly guessing the Warty Goblin to be a squash, which put Naga in the lead.
At the end of play, Naga emerged victorious as she got both guesses right. Charlie was left red-faced after failing to score a single point in the game.
Ending the game in traditional form, Ben quipped: "2-0 to Naga! Naga you know your cucurbits. Charlie, I think you're this morning's pumpkin I'm afraid – sorry!"
Clearly still feeling the rush of her win, Naga piled on the teasing for her co-star. She joked: "Can we call him – what's that, the Warty Goblin one? Can we call Charlie's nickname that today?"
Assuming the name for Charlie, the presenter seemed unimpressed with his new label, blasting the show: "Well, that's a stupid game, isn't it?". Naga rubbed the loss in, smirking to her co-host: "That's set the morning up perfectly, hasn't it Warty Goblin?"
But Charlie would have the last laugh, as Ben returned later on in the programme with another round, where Charlie did better. During both segments, it was revealed that the UK will spend £1billion on Halloween for the first time ever.
