Naga Munchetty, 46, has spoken out on her health after sparking concern from her BBC Radio 5 Live listeners yesterday. It comes after the BBC Breakfast presenter suffered from an unfortunately timed coughing fit while fronting her show live on air.
Naga was forced to play a pre-recorded clip when her uncontrollable cough got in the way of her broadcast, while she rushed off air to grab some water.
Naga’s coughing fit didn’t go unnoticed by her listeners, with one fan taking to Twitter to check on her.
Twitter user Melnish Abourt penned: “Naga we are all in our office listening as always, we are all (male/female) fans of you, we worry as you are always coughing, spluttering and loosing your voice..(sic)
“Having drinks of water, reassure us you are OK.”
Naga returned seconds later telling listeners she was “all good”.
However, she still seemed to sound croaky.
After trying her best to continue, her cough then got the better of her.
“Sorry,” she told listeners.
