Naga Munchetty apologises as shes slammed on for painful interruption on BBC
On this morning's BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty apologised from the red sofa after interrupting her guest.
Along with co-host Charlie Stayt, the BBC Breakfast presenters were discussing how British racing pigeons have to quarantine on arrival to France.
Ian Evans from the Royal Pigeon Association joined the duo, and said that Brexit was responsible for the move.
During the interview, Naga apologised for herself as she had interrupted him throughout the entire segment.
Charlie asked Ian: “There is a problem here, isn’t there? Has it taken you by surprise? Explain how this is going to work out?”
Ian said: “It’s a huge problem, it has the potential to be catastrophic to our historic sport.
“In terms of taking us by surprise, yeah, the European Union regulations leading up to April 21 this year, excluded racing pigeons from the health requirements.
“So, we very much thought we would be able to continue with our historic racing from France, but these new health regulations have put a stop to that.”
Naga then asked: “What is this going to do the practice of pigeon racing as a hobby or as a sport?”
“It’s very much a sport and a competitive sport,” Ian said. “It offers opportunities for competition and recreation and has a benefit to everyone who takes part.”
The hosts asked about how he Ian identifies his pigeons, which he revealed to be through a unique identification ring on the leg of the birds.
As Ian tried to answer their questions, Naga interrupted him saying, "Sorry, I have to ask," but as she realised he was already answering her question she apologised for the interruption saying: “Sorry, go on Ian.”
