During Saturday’s BBC Breakfast, Nina Warhurst stepped in to replace Naga Munchetty, who usually co-hosts the programme with Charlie Stayt at the weekend. However, Mike Bushell, who regularly presents the latest sports news was forced to apologise to Nina when he went to call her Naga.
During the segment, Mike was discussing the popularity of bowls with the younger generation when the slip-up happened.
“Give it a go,” he began. “It’s free this weekend and over…well 700 clubs I’m hearing across England for free sessions.
“In Wales, there is a big campaign starting next month, an awareness campaign in Scotland and Northern Ireland.”
“Now, our wonderful viewers have proven themselves brilliantly this morning Charlie and…” Mike continued.
Naga wasn’t the only familiar face absent from Saturday’s programme either.
Scottish meteorologist Carol Kirkwood was also absent from the show.
Carol has spent more than 20 years at the BBC and usually presents the weather forecast on BBC Breakfast.
If Carol is unable to host, emerging presenter Owain Wyn Evans often steps in to give the latest weather news.
