Naga Munchetty took a brutal swipe at Saturday Kitchen host Matt Tebbutt this weekend after he begged her for ‘a bit of sparring.’

The BBC Breakfast host, 48, made a cheeky dig at the chef, 49, when introducing his show during a live link alongside her co-host Roger Johnson.

Naga and Matt are known for their banter and making humourous swipes are each other – but it appeared Saturday’s interaction left Matt stung as he exclaimed: ‘Ow, that hurt!’

The drama began during BBC Breakfast as Roger, 54, and Naga, prepared to cross over to the Saturday Kitchen studios to see what was coming up on the day’s show.  

Turning to his co-star, Roger said: ‘We’re here until 10 O’clock this morning when your second favourite programme on a Saturday takes over Naga’, as she pulled a bemused face.

He continued: ‘Matt Tebbutt and the team in the Saturday Kitchen’, at which Naga then interjected: ‘Am I supposed to agree with you there?’

Giggling awkwardly, Roger replied: ‘Well I know you like a bit of Saturday Kitchen…’

As Naga went to say good morning to Matt via the link, the screen then cut to the chef with his hands up, looking rather disgruntled by Naga’s comments.

Laughing at his reaction, Naga said: ‘What are the hands in the air?’, with Matt remarking: ‘I’m waiting for the punchline!

‘Come on, hit me. I’m in the mood today!’

‘You’re in the mood?’ questioned Naga, to which Matt said: ‘Yeah come on, a bit of sparring.’

Never one to disappoint, Naga simply responded: ‘Are you?’ before asking if he had any ‘good cooks and chefs’ coming up on the show.

Without skipping a beat, she then quickly added: ‘So that means that you’re not cooking!’

As he and Roger began to laugh, Matt exclaimed: ‘Oh there it is! There it is. Ow, that hurt!’

Despite the pair often having playful jibes at each other, Matt recently admitted that his fellow BBC presenter Naga puts the ‘fear of God’ into him,  as he’s never sure which direction their conversations would go.

Speaking to the Daily Express in December about their relationship, he said: ‘She puts the fear of god into me. Of all the 90 minutes, that’s the one I just don’t know where it’s going to go.’ 

However, he was quick to heap praise on her, adding: ‘I love Naga. I love her brand of humour. It’s old school. Almost like playground humour. I kind of like that. It’s spiky, a bit edgy. It’s very funny. It’s just so random but we get on very well.’

He continued: ‘It’s so left field. You don’t know what is going to come next. Some people look at it and love it while others don’t know how to take it. But it’s done in absolute joy and jest.’

Matt then added that he both fears and loves it ‘at the same time’.

The BBC Breakfast journalists were guest stars on the cookery show, which is presented by Matt and featured guest chef Yotam Ottolenghi.

Filming descended into chaos when the pair were accused of rudeness and ‘appallingly cringeworthy’ behaviour, with more than 100 viewers lodging official complaints.

Twitter was flooded with angry comments, leading to the BBC releasing a statement noting the ‘relaxed’ nature of the weekend show.
