Naga Munchetty, 46, has recalled a time when she was caught in a tornado while golfing in the UK. The BBC Breakfast host opened up about this on her BBC Radio 5Live show earlier today, admitting she “could have died”.

The broadcaster opened up about the story after weather presenter Simon King discussed the natural event.

He was explaining how there are between 30 and 50 tornados a year in the UK.

At this point, Naga promised to tell him about a time he was caught in one.

She said: “One day when you and I meet for coffee, I’ll tell you the story of the time I was caught in a tornado on the golf course.”

In response to his incredulity, she continued: “Yes, you’re jealous now!

“In the UK, at the Buckinghamshire Golf Course while playing golf.

“I’ll tell you all about it, I could have died!”

While the presenter promised the full story would only come later, she did tease some more details.

She continued when asked if it was a scary time: “I didn’t know.

“Someone else saw because we didn’t know we were in the middle of it.

“It was amazing – one day I’ll tell you.”

Simon was audibly impressed by the story and eager to find out more.

Naga was keeping the details close to her chest however for a later date.

She was later teased by her co-presenter Nick Hatfield for giving quite a lot away.

He said: “You virtually told Simon the story about the tornado.”

However, Naga corrected him: “I didn’t.

The Only Way Is Essex star opened up about gaining weight in lockdown.

He said: “Throughout lockdown, my eating just unfortunately became out of control, whether it was out of boredom, loneliness, isolation.

“I have previously suffered with addiction problems in terms of alcohol and drugs.

“So I do believe I substituted drink and drugs for food.”

Naga Munchetty presents on BBC Radio 5Live from 10am to 1pm Mondays to Wednesdays.
