BBC Breakfast co-stars Sally Nugent and Charlie Stayt may have crossed a line with topics that shouldn't be discussed on air.

The duo took centre stage on Wednesday's programme and appeared to be in high spirits until the awkward discussion about "age" fell into the equation.

It was the sports reporter, 50, who turned to Charlie, 59, to ask: "How old do you feel?"

Caught off-guard he joked: "It depends on the day," before returning the question: "You?"

Looking red faced, Sally responded: "27, stop right there."

The TV duo had been busy discussing Queen Elizabeth II who recently rejected the British Tabloid Oldie Of The Year Award.

In response, The Queen responded telling organisers "you are as young as you feel".

Awards chairman Gyles Brandreth personally wrote to the queen in July asking if she'd be willing to accept the award.

The Oldie Magazine published the letter in their magazine which read: "Dear Mr Brandreth,

"Thank you for your letter of 30th July, addressed to Sir Edward Young, asking if The Queen would accept The Oldie Of The Year Award.

"Her Majesty believes you are as old as you feel, as such The Queen does not believe she meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept, and hopes you will find a more worthy recipient.

"This message comes to you wth Her Majesty's warmest best wishes."

Sally, has recently stepped into more of a presenting role on the BBC Breakfast as the shows bosses work to find a suitable replacement for Louise Minchin who left the programme last month.

Back in June, Louise announced she would be leaving the show after two decades at the helm.

In her leaving statement live on air, the newsreader explained she was most looking forward to not setting her alarm for "3:46 in the morning".
