BBC reporter forced to apologise as Naga Munchetty slams ‘gloomy’ presenting

BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty was not impressed as Simon King gave a breakdown of the upcoming weather around the country.

Storm Antoni has meant that people around the UK have been facing heavy rain and wind, and Simon admitted that the bad weather will be here to stay for a few more days.

As Naga and Charlie Stayt spoke about how gloomy the weather was in Salford, where the studio is located, they gave a hopeful welcome to the forecast.

Naga said: "Someone is going to lift that gloom for us," as Charlie joked: "Is it him?" pointing over to Simon in the corner.

She replied: "Oh I say that, because I have such faith in you Simon, but then I see what you're bringing me," referencing a picture of a rainy residential street.

Simon responded: "And then I start with this lovely picture", as they joked that the flowers in people's gardens would be happy with the rain.

He continued: "It's British summertime, there you go," as he described heavy rain and wind, with an amber warning being given to viewers.

But at the end of the forecast, he predicted Wednesday and Thursday could brighten up, with pressure building in the air to bring warmer temperatures.

Naga said: "This is so much better", as she pointed at the screen and added: "It's so much better than when you started."

Simon then chimed in: "Oh good, only the positive stuff, but it is only a brief warm, dry spell, so we're not talking about it getting better at the end of this and being better for a few weeks, it is going to be a short time only."

An umimpressed Naga quickly hit back: "I was trying to bring some optimism to the room and you just stamped on it."

Simon apologised as he said: "Sorry, yeah sorry I did but it will be positive because it will be nicer than it has been so far," as the presenters took the show back over again.

The episode had half aired on BBC2 before moving back to BBC1 at 8.15 as it moved around for the football.

BBC Breakfast normally airs weekdays at 6am on BBC1.
