Naga Munchetty, 46, has a lot of on-air banter with her Radio 5 Live colleagues, and Wednesday morning was no different as she teased her co-star Nick Hatfield after he received numerous complaints from his neighbours. Chatting about the possibility of replacing traditional willow cricket bats with sustainable bamboo ones after scientists believe they would be “cheaper” and help to increase the sports’ reach, the news reporter told a story of how he plays cricket with his son in their cul-de-sac road.

I would always blame you, as you well know!

“We had to change our equipment actually,” he recalled.

“From tennis balls to sponge balls because the neighbours kept complaining about hem hitting the cars!”

Spluttering, Naga replied: “I’m not surprised!”

He revealed he received a few stern looks through the windows as he went on: “Trouble is, we play with some of his friends on the street and whenever they hear a car they run off.

“So I’m stood there on my own, an adult!”

The radio DJ giggled, admitting she would blame him for it all.

“I would blame you!” she cackled, teasing her colleague.

“I would always blame you, as you well know!”

A post shared by Ruthie Henshall (@ruthiehenshallofficial)

Earlier in the week, Naga became emotional after speaking to her pal Ruthie Henshall, about her campaign for the Government to rethink about their care home coronavirus restrictions following the death of her mum Gloria on Tuesday.

The actress branded the lack of visits “totally unnecessary” and told Naga it had been “exhausting” getting people to listen to her.

She also praised care home staff and said it had been “devastating” for them not to be able to give out hugs, due to rules in place.

Naga became emotional during their chat and could be heard choking up as she said: “Ah Ruthie, look after yourself, thank you take care.”

Naga swiftly welcomed her BBC co-star Nihal Arthanayake, whose show began straight after.

“Hi Nihal, you’re up at One O’Clock,” she said hesitantly.

Realising her tone of voice, he asked: “Are you OK?”

“Yeah its hard isn’t it? People are losing people and its hard,” she replied.

“It really is,” he agreed.

“Harder for them of course,” she added.

After the show, Naga shared a clip from her interview with Ruthie on Twitter alongside a broken heart emoji.

Many of her 255,000 followers flocked to her post to share their thoughts.
