Naga Munchetty shares cryptic post about getting older and ‘seeing through people’

Naga Munchetty, 46, shared a cryptic post on her Instagram story on Thursday. After sharing a quote posted by Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore, the TV star left much to the imagination as to whether she was OK.

The quote read: “Funny thing about getting older.

“Your eyesight starts getting weaker, but your ability to see through people gets much better.”

Fans were only able to send Naga a direct message about the post and it is unknown if she has replied, and whether there was someone in particular that the quote was in reference to.

It comes after the BBC Breakfast star treated her followers to a very sweaty snap of her upon completion of her daily run.

It comes after a report revealed that all women will now be given the option to have pain relief if they have coils, also known as the IUD (intrauterine device), fitted.

It works as soon as it is put in and lasts between five and 10 years depending on the type.

Following the news, a fan took to Twitter to notify Naga of the story and thanked her for speaking out.

They wrote: “Important change in coil guidance thanks to @TVNaga01, @caitlinmoran and @bbc5live.”

Naga tweeted it with the comment, saying: “A step forward…”

‘I’m so angry’ Naga Munchetty near swearing as she fumes over Rashford mural being defaced

Naga Munchetty, 46, shared her anger with her Radio 5 Live listeners on Monday morning, after England’s Euro 2020 loss sparked violence and outrage among fans. Videos began to emerge of thugs attacking fans while others spouted horrendous abuse online towards the players, including racist remarks to Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho & Bukayo Saka, who missed penalties in Sunday night’s 3-2 shoot-out. Raheem Sterling was also a target.

Millions have shared their disgust over the racist remarks, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson blasting the despicable behaviour and telling those who have partaken in the torrid of abuse to “crawl back under the rock from which you emerged”.

A mural of Rashford, which was commissioned in recognition of his work to tackle child food poverty, was also vandalised with graffiti following England’s defeat to Italy.

The artwork in Withington, Manchester, was defaced shortly after the match had finished, with several swear words and the word “Saka” scribbled across part of his face.

“For some of [the players] to be abused is unforgivable really,” he said.

“I know a lot has come from abroad. People who track those things have been able to explain that. But not all of it.”

He added: “It’s just not what we stand for.”

“We have been a beacon of light in bringing people together in people being able to relate to the national team, and the national team stands for everybody and so that togetherness has to continue,” he continued.

“We heal together as a team now, and we’re there for them, and I know that 99% of the public will be as well.”

Manager Gareth said in a video on Twitter today: “We hope that we’ve represented you in the right way. We hope that you’ve enjoyed watching us play.

“I’m very grateful to all of the players and the incredible staff I’ve got with me, that we’ve been able to get to our first final in 55 years.

“But of course we know now we’ve got to deliver for you, so we’ll be doing everything we can.

“Your support and energy has given us a huge lift, and I know it will on Sunday.”

The BBC star opened up on her “excruciating” experience, which left her husband James Haggar desperately trying to find out what room she was in “to make it stop” after hearing her screaming in pain.

Naga recalled: “I had a coil fitted a few years ago, and it was one of the most traumatic physical experiences I’ve had.”

She later added: “Now, I won’t go into all the details, but my screams were so loud that my husband tried to find out what room I was in to make it stop.

“He said that those in the waiting room hearing my screams looked horrified. 

“The nurse accompanying the doctor had tears in her eyes. I was asked by my doctor half way through if I wanted to stop, but I was so determined that the pain I’d suffered so far wouldn’t be repeated, so I said, ‘we’ve got this far, let’s finish it’. I fainted twice.”

Naga then explained: “Though they did ask if we should stop, at no point was it suggested that I could have any anesthetic or sedation.”

'My screams were so loud' Naga Munchetty details husband's horror over her health ordeal

BBC presenter Naga Munchetty, 46, has bravely spoken out about the trauma she went through when she got a contraceptive coil, or IUD, fitted by her GP a few years ago. The BBC Breakfast host decided to share her story for the first time after journalist Caitlin Moran questioned, “why are women not offered pain relief for removal and insertion of IUDs?” in her latest column for The Times.

Naga opened up on her “excruciating” experience during her BBC Radio 5 Live show today, which left her husband James Haggar desperately trying to find out what room she was in “to make it stop” after hearing her screaming in pain.

According to the NHS’ website, an IUD is a small T-shaped plastic and copper device that’s put into your womb (uterus) by a doctor or nurse.

The device releases copper to prevent pregnancy, and protects against pregnancy for between five and 10 years. It’s sometimes referred to as a “coil” or “copper coil”.

Detailing the suffering she went through at the time, Naga told listeners: “Before the IUD removal or insertion, women are merely told, ‘this might be a bit uncomfortable’.

“Now, I have a very high pain threshold, and I know this from experience of pain and I’ve been told this by medical experts.

“I’m not, well I wasn’t then, afraid of being in pain, if I knew it would be temporary, nor am I squeamish. 

“Just thought I’d put that out there before I tell you my story and, I warn you, it is a bit unpleasant.”

Naga recalled: “I had a coil fitted a few years ago, and it was one of the most traumatic physical experiences I’ve had. 

 

“What followed was this, I was told that the smallest sized speculum, which was used for cervical smear tests, wasn’t big enough for this procedure, so I had to have the next size up. That’s when the pain began.”

Naga went on to admit that her screams during the procedure were “so loud” that her husband was left horrified, alongside the other people he was sitting with in the waiting room.

She continued: “Now, I won’t go into all the details, but my screams were so loud that my husband tried to find out what room I was in to make it stop.

“He said that those in the waiting room hearing my screams looked horrified. 

“The nurse accompanying the doctor had tears in her eyes. I was asked by my doctor half way through if I wanted to stop, but I was so determined that the pain I’d suffered so far wouldn’t be repeated, so I said, ‘we’ve got this far, let’s finish it’. I fainted twice. 

“At the follow up appointment a week later, my GP, who is really great, said she couldn’t believe that I’d stuck with it. 

“She said, ‘most women just give up when it hurts that much,’ she also said that she had felt terrible herself after my fitting.”

Naga went on to tell listeners that she wasn’t offered any pain relief during the procedure.

She added: “Though they did ask if we should stop, at no point was it suggested that I could have any anesthetic or sedation. 

“It was removed a year later because it didn’t suit me, and the pain was again excruciating.

“I fainted again and then I burst into tears of relief when I left the GP’s office.”

“I felt violated, weak, and angry,” Naga admitted.

Naga then clarified that she wanted her story to change the conversation about how we look at women’s health and pain. 

She explained: “What this is about is not the coil itself, we know it is safe and effective. What this is about is how we look at all women’s health and pain.”

The BBC Radio 5 presenter then asked her guest how he knew the person who was booing was being racist.

She queried: “Maybe, and this is what a lot of fans have said who have said they boo, they don’t like to see their football team being political.”

In response, Billy said football bosses had used politics as an “excuse” to avoid highlighting the importance of racism awareness.

He added he had spoken to those high up in the industry, who, he claims, said racism is political and can’t be mixed with the sport.

Naga Munchetty hits back at viewer amid 'dreadful' swipe as host replaced on BBC Breakfast

Naga Munchetty was replaced by Nina Warhurst on Saturday’s edition of BBC Breakfast following the presenter’s absence from the show. Viewers will usually see Naga and her co-host Charlie Stayt at the start of the weekend but due to other commitments, various BBC presenters on occasion will step in for the regular Breakfast hosts.

Following Naga’s absence, the 46-year-old was flooded with messages of support after a social media troll posted a “mean” insult online.

The Breakfast host reacted to the brutal swipe, in view of her 255,000 followers.

In a now-deleted tweet, the person in question wrote: “Lovely to watch breakfast TV this morning without the dreadful Naga.”

The broadcaster offered a sarcastic response to the social media user.

Earlier this month Naga replied humorously after another troll wrote scathingly about her: “Quite frankly, I’d rather someone take a cheese grater to my b**end than go near that poisonous person.”

Naga shared their tweet with the reply: “Happy to help Shirley,” and signed off the message with a kiss.

It comes after the Breakfast host was replaced on the programme while on leave over the weekend.

Ahead of the programme airing on Sunday, Nina took to Twitter to let her followers know she would be back on BBC Breakfast.

Sharing a picture of herself holding a cup of tea, Nina penned: “Hello good morning bonjour from Salford how you feeling about festival season?

“Could the govt have offered more support? What impact from the Janssen vax? Is it time for the govt to call it on kids’ vax? Oooo & @BobbyDavro1 & @anniemacmanus (separately tho).” (sic)

When Naga is not presenting Breakfast, the broadcaster fronts her own show on BBC Radio 5Live from Monday to Wednesday.

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.

Naga Munchetty warns listeners after story leaves her in tears before going live on air

Naga Munchetty, 46, warned listeners before her BBC Radio 5 Live guest told her an emotional and heartfelt story on the show. The BBC Breakfast host admitted the moving tale had moved her to tears before she had arrived at the public broadcaster’s office that morning.
Naga welcomed Josie Lloyd onto her morning radio show, to discuss her new novel, which was inspired by how she had completed a 10k run in Brighton alongside other cancer survivors.

Josie, who was diagnosed with breast cancer but is now cancer-free, had the most incredible anecdote from her time in the race, which she wanted to share with listeners.

However Naga interrupted her and said: “Can I just say one thing before you say this, I’m warning my listeners now… I read this, this morning and I cried on the way to work.

“It’s beautiful, it’s beautiful, sorry carry on Josie,” she added.

Josie started: “It’s the story that inspired me to write a whole novel. So what happened was this lovely woman fell into step next to me [during the race] and she was the picture of health, she had this gorgeous glossy hair.

“She said, ‘I had Stage 4 cancer, they thought I was a goner.

“I ran all the way through my treatment, and look at me now and we had a little… she said, ‘Go on keep going, you can do it’.

“I was so inspired by her and she was so lovely. She ran on and I kind of got my mojo back and I ran on.”

However, when Josie got to the end of the race, the kind runner stopped and wanted to continue their conversation.

Josie continued: “At the final turn of the race she had waited for me. She said, ‘Stop a sec, I want to talk to you,’ and I said, ‘What is it?’

“And she said, ‘When I was going through my absolute lowest ebb I was in a café, near the hospital and I was feeling wretched, and this woman, this stranger across the café came over to me and she said, ‘Listen I know what you are going through, I’ve been there, and I just want you to know to have hope because your life will be even better at the other side of cancer’.

“This woman in the café had taken off a little butterfly necklace, which she had given to this runner and said, ‘This is a little butterfly of hope, and I want you to wear it and know your life will be better than ever on the other side of cancer’.

“And now in the race, this runner took her necklace off, the same necklace I’m wearing now, and she gave it to me and said, ‘Look this is your little butterfly of hope now, and I want you to wear it and know your life is going to be better than ever.

“’Just know you are going to be fine,’” she finished.

Josie has now released The Cancer Ladies’ Running book which details her experience with the disease and how she found hope and friendship through running.

Elsewhere, Naga has been keeping her fans entertained on social media after she revealed how a supermarket assistant had turned her away from buying a bottle of wine.

The TV host spoke out on Twitter after she was unable to purchase alcohol after leaving her ID at home.

Naga typed in view of her 254,000 followers: “Am winning at life in a small way this morning…

“Just been refused to be sold a bottle of wine at the local supermarket by the lovely lady at the till because I had no I.D. YES!”

Fellow BBC host Sophie Raworth, 52, said she was also recently asked for a form of identification while trying to purchase alcohol.

She responded: “I got ‘carded’ recently to see if I was over 25 in a supermarket. I was wearing a mask and a hat to be fair. But still.”

While fans also commented with their experiences of being ID’d despite being many years above the UK’s legal drinking age of 18.

One said: “This happened to me not so long ago & when I actually said I was thrilled at the compliment the young lad serving said, ‘Yeah it’s only cos of your mask, take it off you’d probably be walking away with the wine’. Talk about crashing & burning…” (sic)

Another replied: “That’s brilliant @TVNaga01, I can fully understand why you had to show your ID! I can beat you though, I had to show my driving licence before the Amazon courier would hand over my bottle of malt whisky, (I’m 73)!”

A third commented: “Happened to me… I was 49 at the time!! Sort of flattered until I queried it, the guy said, ‘It’s not about what you look like it’s just a random check’. I asked what ID as hadn’t needed it to pop to the local shop before & he said a driving licence, ‘So I can buy wine if I’m driving?’.”(sic)
