Naga, 45, and Jon, 51, were back on hand to oversee proceedings on the first-weekend edition of BBC Breakfast, discussing all manner of headlines. The BBC journalists were rather taken on a story about the impact of street art on British city landscapes. They watched as their colleague conducted an interview with an individual who had recently had their portrait sprayed onto a wall outside a resident’s association in north-west London. However, reflecting on the report, Jon left his co-host somewhat dumbfounded when he made a remark about his own image being immortalised as a mural.
After seeing the street art of pensioner June, Jon said he thought it was an “absolutely fantastic” piece of work.
“That’s great. I think June is being very modest saying there are too many wrinkles. I think it looks great,” Naga added.
The presenter then told her co-star: “No one likes their picture, do they? You know, when your picture’s taken.”
This was the moment he then made his admission by explaining: “The idea of walking outside my house and seeing a giant picture of me on the wall is horrific.”
Naga was taken aback by the comment and replied the idea of seeing his portrait as a mural “frightened” her.

The moment was all in jest as both presenters had a good old laugh before carrying on with the rest of the show.
Before watching the interview, Naga expressed her interest in the art form which is becoming increasingly popular.
“I’ve always liked street art - obviously it has to be done so it’s not damaging but I think it brings so much spirit to a place,” she explained.
Jon agreed as he added: “I live in Bristol, home of Banksy originally, and it’s everywhere. It does brighten the place up.”
