"I do really want to know whether you celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday," she said on the radio waves on Monday. "I didn't, I never do! I sound quite forceful when I say that, don't I? I have quite strong opinions! If you did though, there’s no judgement here, of course. Love is love. What did you do?"

Quizzed over her Valentine's Day inspired jumper, Naga quipped: "No, I don't do Valentine’s and anyone who loves me knows not to do Valentine's with me."

She added: "I actually got this jumper just because I love it. I thought it was ironic and I thought I could wear it, it was ironic because I'm so not romantic, well I am romantic."

On the front of the jumper were the words, "He loves me," while the back was emblazoned with, "He loves me not".

Surprised by her remark, Nihal asked: "Okay, what was the last romantic thing that you did that you would be willing to share on national radio?" to which Naga revealed: "It would be an act of kindness, that's the most romantic thing I could think of, being kind to someone."

She continued: "So I might just switch [the jumper] round! Anyway, being kind to someone is romantic because all romance is, is showing that you've thought about someone else, and being thought about is a wonderful thing, and being cared for is a wonderful thing."

Sharing some examples of her kind gestures for husband James, the 45-year-old divulged: "Head rub! I gave a head rub yesterday and it was received with such gratitude!"
