Naga Munchetty is part of the BBC Breakfast line-up alongside Dan Walker, Carol Kirkwood and others. During her time on the flagship morning show, she has suffered a number of unfortunate on-air gaffes and regularly been called out on social media. One eagle-eyed viewer noticed a small yet amusing mistake during one BBC broadcast when she got Daniel Craig, star of James Bond ‘No Time To Die’, ever so slightly wrong.
The film starred a number of big celebrity names including Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris and of course Daniel Craig.
But when Naga tried to pronounce the name of the actor who played the fictional British secret agent she seemed to be lost for words.
The host said: “Kate, does this bond stay in the modern age, we’ve seen quite a lot of that in Craig David…”
Recognising her error, she mumbled and said “erm” as she seemed to be desperately wracking her mind for the actor’s name.
Craig David joined the conversation when he quipped: “When you know the new music is about to drop it’s hard to think straight.”
Others on social media commented that the host “must be as tired” and others wrote puns about the singer’s ‘7 Days’ lyrics.
One tweeted: “That nice lady on BBC Breakfast just said Craig David instead of Daniel Craig. Well, he does act like James Bond from Wednesday to Saturday.”
Another added: “Craig David WOULD be a good Bond. Let’s make it happen people.”
