BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty shared the brutal advice her husband once told her when she first started out in news. The journalist, 48, shared that her TV director husband, James Haggar, told her: “You need to have thicker skin”.

James, continued: “People either love you or hate you, but you need to not take it personally.”

In a 2020 interview with The Guardian, Naga said James’s advice provided her with a huge lesson and further admitted that she has taken it into her off-screen life, too.

She said: “It’s not that I don’t care – but it’s in perspective. [I always assume] that people don’t like me. It’s a really weird thing.

“I think I grow on people. I don’t think I make a great first impression. I’m comfortable with that. I think people see a loud person who’s opinionated and not afraid to say what she thinks.”

Naga and James have been married since 2004 and they live together in Hertfordshire. 10 years after their wedding, Naga became a full-time presenter on BBC Breakfast and now presents alongside Charlie Stayt.

Their appearances often get viewers talking, and that was no different after Thursday’s instalment.

Fans took to social X [formerly known as Twitter] after Naga took a swipe at Charlie while discussing the stories in the national newspapers.

One of them was about buffet etiquette, to which Naga asked Charlie, 61, if he had any rules when it came to the buffet table.

Charlie replied: “Do you just get one go or do you get multiple? If it’s one go, you pile it high, don’t you? To be honest, they give you smaller plates these days to stop that happening and you have to layer it so you have the right [balance]. There’s a lot of theory in it.”

Naga replied: “Double dipping – don’t do that. Queue jumping and returning food that you’ve already picked up – all wrong.”

She then turned to Business Correspondent Ben Boulos and said: “Ben would never [do that], you’d just scoff everything in sight, wouldn’t you? There’d be no food to return, would there?”

Ben replied in shock and replied: “No, I don’t do that. I don’t think that’s fair, I don’t think that’s fair.

BBC Breakfast airs at 6am on BBC One.
