Angry BBC Breakfast viewers call for Naga Munchetty to return amid shake-up


NAGA Munchetty was once again absent from BBC Breakfast today – despite having not presented her usual days this week.

The BBC One breakfast show has seen a series of presenter swaps all week, with fan favourite Naga being replaced by a stand-in all week.

The star’s usual presenting days on the early morning programme are Thursdays through ’til Saturday alongside Charlie Stayt, but she hasn’t been seen for days.

Yesterday, the anchor was replaced by Rachel Burden, who typically presents on the radio.

Rachel is a regular host of BBC 5Live’s breakfast show between 6am and 9am, and joined Charlie on the red sofa for all of Naga’s usual shifts.

This Sunday saw the return of regular Sunday stand-ins Luxmy Gopal and Roger Johnson.

The pair usually present together, and are loved by fans of the show, but many have been calling for Naga’s return.

One wrote on Twitter: “Where’s Naga? #BBCBreakfast”.

Munchetty, who has interviewed political figures such as Hillary Clinton, David Cameron and Tony Blair, became a permanent presenter on BBC Breakfast in 2014.

Before that she regularly presented early morning news bulletins for BBC News.

Naga being replaced all week follows a similar occurrence for Sally Nugent.

Victoria Valentine stood in for Sally on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, presenting alongside Jon Kay.
