Naga Munchetty and Carol Kirkwood’s Playful Exchange
During the BBC Breakfast show on Thursday, Naga Munchetty playfully engaged with her co-star, Carol Kirkwood.
Carol had just completed her typically friendly weather report, but Naga couldn’t help but notice a change in the maps she was using.
Naga, who was co-hosting with Charlie Stayt, decided to inquire about the alteration. She asked Carol, “Carol, may I ask a question?” To which Carol responded with a simple “Yes.” Naga proceeded, “Your first map, the map of the UK.
Have you added some details about the roads in it?”
Carol confirmed the change, explaining, “Yes, you can see them quite nicely here, can’t you? It’s useful when it’s snowing, for example, in the winter to have these [road lines] on.”
Naga quickly grasped the reason, saying, “Oh yes, of course!”
Carol’s Playful Response
Carol seemed impressed and remarked, “Well observed!” However, Naga humorously interpreted the comment as a sarcastic quip, stating, “Carol, you know I always watch you very closely.”
Carol playfully replied, “I do,” and Naga, with a grin, added, “Don’t worry too much, see you later.”
This cheerful exchange came shortly after Breakfast host Jon Kay faced criticism from viewers during an interview with a victim of sex offender Jimmy Savile.
The interview took place before the release of the BBC’s controversial drama about Savile’s crimes.
Jon’s question about laughter in response to Susan’s experiences prompted some viewers to express concerns about his approach.
Susan’s Account of Abuse
Susan, a victim of Savile’s actions in the 1970s, shared how people didn’t take her seriously when she initially disclosed the abuse.
It was only in 2012, a year after Savile’s death, that the extent of his sexual abuse of hundreds of people became widely known.
Jon’s question during the interview led some viewers to question his empathy and sensitivity towards Susan.
The exchange generated discussions on social media platforms, with some criticizing his choice of words during the conversation.
