What happened on BBC Breakfast this week?
Earlier this week, Naga and Charlie caused controversy after an interview with Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick.
At the end of the interview, Charlie made a joke about the size of Jenrick’s Union Jack flag.
Where are @TVNaga01 and Charlie Stayt today? Are they on the #bbcbreakfast naughty step?
Naga laughed and also noted that he had a framed picture of The Queen on the wall.
Viewers were quick to complain, and a group of MPs wrote to the head of the BBC demanding the pair apologised.
Naga did apologise for an “offence” caused after liking a number of tweets about the incident.
