They asked: “Where are you anyway?!”

Naga was quick to answer the fan’s query and explained she was on BBC Radio 5 Live and therefore was unavailable to host BBC Breakfast.

She wrote back: “I was on @bbc5live Back on @BBCBreakfast tomorrow X.”

Elsewhere, Naga confessed she suffered a first date horror with her first boyfriend back when she was 17. 

The star, who is now married to James Haggar, said: “He was a lovely gentleman, he came to the house to pick me up and we were going out on a date and I was desperate for my mum not to get to the door first.

“So, I got ready – I’d been ready for ages – and I got to the top of the stairs and the doorbell rang.”

She recalled: “My mum had charged there first and opened the door and saw this lovely young man,” she added, revealing the embarrassment over what happened next.

“I was at the top of the stairs and immediately just tumbled down them, butt first all the way down!” she sighed, picturing the humiliation all over again.

“This poor boy just looked at me open mouthed and my mum just said, ‘What are you so excited about? It’s only him, why are you making a big drama about it?’

“I literally just got my coat and stomped out the house,” she admitted.

Luckily, Naga revealed that despite the awkward first impression, the couple stayed together for another two years.
