Charlie Stayt scolded by BBC Breakfast boss for leading show astray ‘Move on!’

Charlie Stayt scolded by BBC Breakfast boss for leading show astray ‘Move on!’

BBC Breakfast’s director was on hand to crack the whip and keep the show rolling this morning, as he interjected Charlie Stayt’s “moment” of reflection. It comes after Charlie and his co-presenter Naga Munchetty spoke to the photographer behind the new online exhibition called ‘Take a Moment’ in aid of the mental health charity Mind, which shows several famous faces pausing. 

Kicking off the segment, Charlie said: “When you take a picture of someone with their eyes shuts, it’s usually cast as a mistake.”

“One celebrity photographer has been deliberately asking his subjects to close their eyes and then capturing the results,” Naga took over. 

Those at home then saw a series of black and white photographs appear on screen; from Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Ant and Dec. 

Following an interview with Ray Burmiston – the man behind the camera – Charlie wanted to take a moment for himself, but his director had other ideas.

This wasn’t the only time Naga ignored her colleague, as later on in the show, she blanked meteorologist Matt Taylor. 

Following his latest weather report, Matt said: “Another thing to note, on Sunday of course, is that hour extra in bed – providing you’re not working the night shift! 

“Clocks go back at 2 am, the mornings will be a little bit lighter, the evening’s a little bit darker. 

“And for those of you like me, the clocks on the car will, at last, be reading the right time!” 

“Matt, that picture you’re using this morning, is just an excellent picture!” Charlie commented in reference to someone’s submission of a clock sitting on a beach. 

“Wonderful shot!” Matt agreed. “One of our weather watcher’s took that yesterday and sent it in. Quite apt, 2 am in the morning, clocks go back. 

“That clock is probably the size of me!” 

“I’m going to ignore that!” Naga joked. 

BBC Breakfast airs everyday at 6am on BBC One.
