Naga Munchetty, 46, opened up on her radio show earlier today about why she won’t take on a New Year’s trend. The BBC broadcaster was discussing people trying out skateboarding as she admitted she was too concerned about injury.

Naga presents a morning news show on BBC Radio 5 Live Monday to Wednesday from 11am until 1pm.

The show sees her discussing the day’s headlines, as well as chatting to various interviewees.

Today, one of the segments was about people taking up skateboarding in middle age.

She said: “You know we’ve talked about New Year’s resolutions, we always do at this time of year.

“What about taking up skateboarding? What about taking up skateboarding in middle age?

“Apparently, it is really, really good for you.”

Naga continued: “Have you tried it or are you like me and think, ‘No way’.

“I’m all up for looking ridiculous and times and trying new things.

“But I just know it would be a recipe for disaster so I would really worry about being injured.

“Apparently, it’s the joy of succeeding on a skateboard because it is so difficult.

“It brings immense joy.”

However, later on in the show, Naga admitted she doesn’t think it’s something she’ll be trying any time soon.

Naga has suffered a number of sports-related injuries, which she has shared with her followers.

Posting on her Instagram, she’s regularly kept her fans up to date on her recovery from a running issue.

Sharing back in August, she wrote: “Didn’t want to run.

“Couldn’t bear the thought of it.

“But I made a decision yesterday to get back into fitness properly after injury and life forced a break from it.

“It’s not easy, but it’s feeling less difficult.”

This came after Naga admitted she’d been recovering from Achilles Tendonitis.

As well as being a keen gym-goer, the broadcaster also plays golf.
