Ahead of her first day on the new job, the BBC star took to social media to share her excitement as she packed her bag ready for the early start.

“I’ve been sorting out my work bag & am ready to go back to the office,” she penned.

“1st day in a new job @bbc5live tomorrow. 10am to 1pm.

“I get to work with a brilliant team & discuss the stuff in our lives that matter with great guests and listeners. Can. Not. Wait. Hope you can join us.”

Fans rushed to the comments section to share her delight and assured her they would be listening in.

But one had a different view and didn’t waste time in letting the journalist know.

“Rather poke needles in my eyes than listen to you,” they snapped, much to the shock of other fans.

Jumping to defend the presenter, one wrote: “June please start 2021 over and not be horrible to people. Make yourself a brew and maybe go to bed early.”

Another mocked: “But June even if you do that you’ll still be able to hear to her?”

“B****y hell June, chill out. You know you’re not forced to listen to the radio. Also what did the ever-brilliant Naga do to you?” a third questioned.

But with being in the public eye, Naga has grown a tough skin and didn’t take it to heart, responding with a simple yet sarcastic answer.

“That’s dangerous June,” she wrote.

“I also think it will hurt.”

Ahead of her big debut as host of the mid-morning show, Naga admitted that she made a mistake before her big moment on the air-waves when she greeted her new radio colleague Nicky Campbell, by the wrong name.

“I made my first mistake before I even started the program this morning,” she giggled as she confessed the slip-up to her new audience.

“By getting Nicky Campbell’s name wrong!”

She revealed she had called him after the popular haircare brand Nicky Clarke, but luckily the journalist found it quite funny.

“I called call him Nicky Clarke! He took it rather graciously actually,” Naga continued.

“He said that he will aspire to be a hair coiffure in the future.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One and Naga’s Radio 5 Live slot will begin at 10am.
