BBC Breakfast host Charlie Stayt was forced to present on his own this morning (18 November) after co-host Naga Munchetty was forced to leave after only 30 minutes.
"Somebody give Naga a Strepsil,” one said.
Munchetty's voice was difficult to hear during her time on the show as she appeared to be suffering from a sore throat or had lost her voice. Stayt then explained that she was just “stepping off” the sofa due to her voice.
He said: “You may have noticed this morning that Naga has just stepped away from the sofa. This morning [she has] a slight struggle in her voice. We’ll see how that works out.”
Munchetty’s leaving the sofa appears to have been a last-minute decision, as reporters speaking to Stayt throughout the morning continued to wish her a good morning despite her absence.
