Naga Munchetty, 45, was beyond elated when she realised she’s on the way to possessing the knack for perfecting the perfect British BBQ, but wasn’t impressed when her co-star admitted he “cheats” his way to the winning post. The discussion came as temperatures soared in the UK on Monday and Tuesday, reaching highs of 22 degrees Celsius (71.6F) which is set to stay until the end of the week before they plummet once again – in true British style.
Some things shouldn’t be said on-air!
Looking forward to long summer nights and warm days when Covid restrictions allow garden parties and people to meet up freely with friends, Naga wondered whether her co-star Simon had already perfected his BBQ technique.
“We’re trying to get the trick to a good British BBQ,” she said.
“Apparently, I’m half way there!”
Simon paused before sheepishly replying: “I do love a BBQ but I think I cheat,” he began.
“I use a gas BBQ these days.”
Gasps could be heard in the studio as Naga winced, sighing: “Some things shouldn’t be said on air,” she retorted.
Simon sounded apologetic as he continued: “I know but I BBQ more often than if I had a charcoal one!”
Gas BBQ’s seem to be becoming more popular in this modern day as they boast a convenient, efficient and ready-in-a-flash dinner.
Charcoal grills give the food a “smokey taste” that many BBQ connaisseurs desire, with only a little more mess.
Seeing things from his point of view, the BBC star changed her mind and also admitted that she too was considering buying a gas oven.
“I’m in the process of deciding whether to buy one,” she confessed.
“And I must say, one is being considered but you know, each to their own!”
On Monday’s show, Naga found herself a caught little short – in both senses – after she made a dash to the toilet but was then late to announce what was next coming up on her Radio 5 Live show.

After disappearing from the studio, her co-stars were left wondering if there was a technical issue that was causing the complete radio silence and forced them to improvise until she returned.
When she did reappear on the airwaves, the presenter admitted she had rushed to the toilet but pressed the wrong button when informing them all, so no-one had actually heard her.
The BBC Breakfast presenter cackled: “I’m still trying to figure out what happened, I usually get it right!” she moaned, disappointed she had messed up the timings.
“Three hours on-air and a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do sometimes!
“Poor Nick, I did shout through to the studio but I didn’t press the right button once again,” she quipped.
Naga continued to explain that one of the gallery team had rushed out to try and find her, and when they eventually came across her heading back from the toilet, queried where she had been.
“They came out and were like, ‘Where did you go?’ ‘I went to the loo, I told you,’ ‘You didn’t press the right button,'” she relayed the conversation so listeners understood what had happened.
“I just hadn’t timed and judged the tea and coffee balance right this morning, so I apologise to Nick, who’ll be listening going, ‘There she is!'”
“As long as you hadn’t dozed off, that’s the main thing!” her co-star cheekily added.
Naga’s Radio 5 Live show airs weekdays at 10am.
