BBC Breakfast viewers call out ‘confused’ Naga Munchetty after name blunder

BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty came under fire from viewers after incorrectly naming a classic movie during Saturday’s show.

It comes after the presenter was speaking about this year’s Harrogate Autumn flower show with co-host Ben Thompson.

The duo were showing images of people with giant vegetables that they grew, including a huge onion that weighed nearly nine kilos.

As various images started to pop up on the screen, the presenters laughed at enormous pumpkins and a colossal-sized cucumber.

One snap included a man called Paul Proud with his four vegetables which left Naga and Ben speechless.

Giggling, Naga said: “He’s holding aloft a cucumber, next to his giant cabbage which was a winner.”

Shocked at the size of it, Ben quipped: “That is massive! It looks like it’s going to come alive and eat you.”

Naga replied: “What was that? The Rocky Horror Show? It reminds me of that.”

Although her co-host agreed with her, it was clear viewers caught the blunder as it appeared she got the name of the movie wrong.

The Rocky Horror Show is a 70s musical about a a young engaged couple who break down in an isolated area and seek help from the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-n-Furter.

Instead, the film Naga meant to say was the 1980s classic Little Shop of Horrors which follows a plant that feeds on human blood.

Pointing out her error, @basherdrummer wrote: “I think you’re getting mixed up with Little Shop of Horrors.”

GM_Jordan said: “I think your team has confused the Little Shop of Horrors with Rocky Horror. One has a man-eating plant, the other Sweet Transvestites – easy mistake, not lol.”

@BCollier2012 added: “Little Shop Of Horrors, Naga..”

@shut_up_stewart tweeted: “I think you mean ‘Little Shop of Horrors.”

@snowboard74 commented: “Can you let Naga know it’s Little Shop of Horrors for the man-eating giant plants, not Rocky Horror Show.”

@HisFoxxiness said: “Someone needs to watch Little Shop of Horrors *cough*Naga*cough*”
