    “At the end of a long, serious interview with the Housing, Communities and Local Government Secretary Robert Jennick, Charlie Stays made an off-the-cuff remark about the size of the flag behind Mr Jenrick,” the BBC’s response began.

    “It was meant as a light-hearted, off-the-cuff comment and no offence or disrespect was intended.

    “Naga and Charlie have been spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities, including the BBC’s impartiality and social media guidelines.”

    Following the interview which aired last week, Munchetty had liked a number of tweets referencing Styat’s comments.
