BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty reveals her anger after man 'intimidated' her as she walked home alone | The Sun

BBC BREAKFAST'S Naga Munchetty has revealed her anger after a man "intimidated" her as she walked home alone.

The broadcaster, 47, was today on her usual hosting duties for the BBC One morning programme alongside Charlie Stayt.

But before the show kicked off today, Naga revealed in an interview how she was once "intimidated" by a stranger, who approached her on the street while she was on her own.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "I have had it where I've walked along the street and a guy has said, ‘Hi, you're looking great’ and I just look at them and think inside, I'm fuming. I haven't invited that. You're intimidating me.

"Then you respond and you say, ‘Thanks’ and you carry on walking or you look down and walk on and then they turn around and go, ‘Hey, I'm talking to you. What's your name?’ I don't want to give you my name.

"And then you say, ‘I'm really busy, nice to meet you’ and you move on. But then you’re like ‘Oh what, you’re too good to talk to me?’

The news anchor went on to say: "It's one very specific example but you know this scenario happens and it does happen."

The admission comes after Naga, along with her production team, Madeleine Briggs, Laura Yates and Samhar Gowar, went on a night out with a group of students in Leeds as part of the series on women's safety.

The presenter expressed how important it is to have these conversations with each other, including her male colleagues in a discussion on her BBC Radio 5 Live show.

The students explained how unsafe they felt, as they admitted that they have changed the way they dress to avoid unwanted attention.
