The 47-year-old TV host said: “I am trying to control my temper. I had a very bad temper tantrum yesterday.”

Explaining what happened, Naga said: “I’ll tell you about this game I played yesterday, I played terribly.

I had a very bad temper tantrum yesterday.

“I had a horrendous temper tantrum, twice.

“But the company was so good… me and my partner have lost against these other two three times on the trot.”

But luckily, her mood improved when she scored a birdie.

She added: “We were one down going up on the 18th and I chipped in for birdie.

Naga’s ‘brutal’ joke

The admission came after Naga recently made a “brutal” joke, at the expense of weather presenter Carol Kirkwood on BBC Breakfast.

As Carol gave the weather forecast from Royal Ascot last week (16 June), Naga mocked her hat.

Carol had said she had four hats to show off while she was there, but Naga noticed she had only worn three.

Naga said: “I’m sure you’ll tell me off for remembering this, but I thought you were going to have four hats?”

Explaining that she’d decided to stick with three, Carol said she wanted to show off all angles of the one she had on at the time.

“Less is more,” Carol said. “But can I show you the back of this one?”

As she turned round to show the camera the rest of her hat, Naga joked: “Ah I always think the back of your head looks much better!”

‘You only say that to you best friend, though!’

Laughing, Carol said: “Ha! I know. I thought I’d do that for you as well – get rid of my face!”

Naga joked that she’d be in trouble for her comment the next time she saw Carol, laughing: “Carol, I love you!

“I’m scared when I see you next.”

Fellow presenter Charlie Stayt was sat on the couch with Naga in the studio.

He joked that he heard an “audible ouch” from guests Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward of Banarama when Naga made the comment.

“Brutal,” Sara laughed.

And Keren added light-heartedly: “You only say that kind of thing to your best friend, though.”

Naga agreed: “Exactly!”
