Sally Nugent, 48, presented BBC Breakfast with her co-star Charlie Stayt, 57, on the morning show today. The pair were joined by former deputy Labour leader Tom Watson, 52, who discussed politics and his latest book.
As the duo chatted with the politician, Sally attempted to ask him a question about his weight loss journey but was cut-off by her co-star.
She asked: “What…?” before Charlie abruptly interjected: “Sorry Sally, I was just going to say this,” and proceeded to discuss Tom’s new book.
A seemingly stunned Sally, put her hand on her mouth as she let her colleague continue with his question.
Fans were quick to slam Charlie for “cutting off” his colleague, with many taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations.

Tom briefly discussed his reasoning behind Labour’s loss during the general election last year and what a new leader for the party would have to do in order to win back voters.
Charlie asked: “Who has your backing?”
The former deputy leader replied: “I honestly haven’t made up mind who I’m going to vote for yet. And partly that’s because I want to see leadership from the candidates.
“I want them to explain to the Labour Party why it lost, really deeply and honestly explain what went wrong. In the last 11 general elections Labour have only won three of them under Tony Blair.”
