Naga Munchetty was left blushing during the latest instalment of BBC Breakfast as Tony Blackburn paid her a compliment live on air.
The 48-year-old presenter was back on the famous red sofa on Saturday (November 18) alongside co-host Charlie Stayt and they welcomed the former Radio 1 DJ onto the morning show to discuss the upcoming series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! ahead of its launch on Sunday (November 19).
Welcoming him to the show, Naga said: "Tony Blackburn, the original King of the Jungle joins us now, can you believe it has been 21 years? Did you think this programme would continue?" Wanting to get in her good books, Tony expressed: "Well you obviously didn't see it as you weren't born then."

A giggling Naga blushed: "Oh you charmer, you charmer," before Tony continued: "I just thought it was a really good show 21 years ago. It has changed a lot now, some of the trials are just awful, I wouldn't like to do them anymore. I thought it would last quite a long time, not quite 21 years but it still gets some really big audiences, and of course, I tune in for Ant and Dec."
Charlie was itching to learn Tony's thoughts on controversial former MP Nigel Farage entering the jungle after former health secretary Matt Hancock led the way last year. Tony said: "Last year it was Matt Hancock that was in there and very controversial, this year it's Nige Farage which everyone is talking about and a lot of people say 'Why do politicians go in there?'.
"You get these controversial people in there for the publicity and it is great for the show, whether politicians should go in there, no idea. Nigel Farage will be interesting to see, a lot of people will say 'I'm not going to watch it because Nigel Farage is in there' but they will and it is going to be interesting to see."
