A third person commented: "SUPERB."

The announcement comes just days after Naga said goodbye to one of her BBC Breakfast colleagues, Kate Varley.

Posting a snap of the Breakfast team, showing Kate sitting next to Naga on the red sofa, Kate wrote on Twitter: "Saying goodbye to this brilliant team this week. @BBCBreakfast thanks for an incredible 4.5 years - I'll miss you!"

Naga, who is married to TV director James Haggar, commented on the post, writing: "You will be greatly missed.1 more to go… X."

Kate was quick to reply, tweeting: "Thanks Naga. Feels very real now! See you in the morning (I'm bringing treats)."

Kate isn't the first BBC staff member to announce their departure in recent months following Joanna Gosling's exit back in January.

Naga is clearly close with her BBC Breakfast colleagues and routinely hosts the show alongside her co-presenter Charlie Stayt, as well as weather presenter Carol Kirkwood.

Following rumours of a feud between Carol and Naga, the weathercaster denied the reports in a recent interview, telling The Sun: "I love Naga and we just have banter. I love the camaraderie between us and everyone. It's a good, fun job."
