BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty slammed co-star Charlie Stayt for “ignoring her” again as he left the sofa during their live broadcast.
The BBC presenter, 47, was accused of having a “diva style meltdown” by one viewer, after she called for the filming crew to find her telly partner in crime.
Naga was forced to present a section of the news show alone after Charlie went rogue.
He had left BBC Breakfast‘s Salford Quays studio for a segment on cycling, donning a helmet and picking up a bike in the process.
Yet after the interview finished, he could be seen cycling away, surrounded by the area’s stunning water.
This led Naga to protest: “Mr Stayt, are you coming back in the studio?”
She continued: “He’s ignoring me again, he’s ignoring me – can someone go out and get him please?
“He’s still got one and half hours of broadcasting to do.”
With a telling nod to camera, she then warned: “He will be back – trust me.”
Fans were quick to react, with one writing on Twitter: “Naga Munchetty having a right old diva style meltdown #bbcbreakfast.”

Another copied Naga’s words and added: “‘Can someone go out and get him, can someone go out and get him, can someone go out and get him?’
“Naga is flogging a dead horse of a joke.”
Meanwhile others were more concerned about Charlie’s hair.
One added: “Well it will take an hour in makeup for Charlie to get his hair sorted after the helmet wearing. #BBCBreakfast.”
Another wrote: “When Charlie takes off his cycle helmet, how long will it take to readjust his hair? #bbcbreakfast.”
Naga’s comments came after she previously took a swipe at Charlie for “annoying” her.
The duo were also called out by fans during another show for “wasting time” in their live broadcast.
Naga also recently came under fire for an “outrageous slur” against the Eurovision Song Contest, which airs today.
