BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty made fun of Peter Andre, after one of his jokes fell completely flat on the show.

BBC Breakfast: What did Naga Munchetty say?

Just minutes into the chat, Peter cracked a joke about the UK’s current travel restrictions.

He said: “The funny thing is we’re talking about Grease and we can’t even fly there…

“…which is interesting, so what an interesting time.”

However, the joke was met to complete silence.

Pete awkwardly added: “I thought that was a bit of a Greek joke but no one actually laughed…”

Meanwhile, Naga remarked: “Sorry, we’re just clearing away the tumbleweeds for you.”

Thankfully, Peter saw the funny side of the joke as he laughed along with Naga.

Furthermore, he also shared the moment on Instagram.

Alongside a news article, Peter penned: “The worst part is I thought I WAS punny @bbcbreakfast #greasenotgreece.”

What else has Naga been up to?

Meanwhile, it comes days after Naga revealed she may have pulled her Achilles tendon at the gym.

Speaking on her Radio 5 Live show, the star explained that she pushed herself “too far” while working out – and she was “hobbling” as a result.

She shared: “My lesson learnt, I went to the gym yesterday and I pushed it.

“I really pushed it and I was so excited being back, and I ran just a little bit too far. And I’m now hobbling today, because I pulled my Achilles tendon, I think.”

In addition, Naga said: “It’s really sore and I knew it was going and I just thought, ‘I’m just going to hit this marker’. Fool that I am! Anyway, lesson learnt.”

Naga hosts the mid-morning slot three days a week.
