Naga, 45, was on hand to report on the latest headlines this weekend, joined in the BBC Breakfast studio by her co-star Jon, 51. One such story they were discussing was the big switch-on of the Blackpool Illuminations on Friday night, which celebrated the front line and NHS workers who continued with their duties throughout the coronavirus pandemic. However, following the report on the heartwarming story, the host made an attempt to leave the BBC set.
This year, for the first time ever, the light show will be extended by two months, meaning members of the public can enjoy the illuminations until the beginning of January.
With the camera back in the studio, Jon could be heard telling his co-star: “We’ve got to go. We’ve got to go.
“We’ve got until the end of the year - we’ve got to go. Not go now but go to Blackpool and look at the illuminations.”
Naga then gestured to make it seem she was going to get out of her seat and leave her fellow anchor to present solo.
It was then her colleague issued his warning by telling her: “You’ve got to stay. You’ve got three and a half hours work to do.”

“Definitely not [going leave],” Jon continued, before telling viewers Naga was going to stay in her seat to present alongside him.
“I’ll make sure of it,” he added, with his colleague laughing off the comical moment between the hosts.
Before reading the headlines making up the newspapers on Saturday, the presenter assured her co-star she was “committed” to her role.
Later on in the programme, the pair then spoke about the use of large plastic sheets being used for people to hug one another, becoming a loophole for social distancing.
