Naga is one of the faces on BBC Breakfast

Naga, who lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and TV director James, leads a healthy lifestyle. She frequently shares photos from her impressive exercise regime – including her 5k runs and golf outings.

Her sporting passion is something she shares with her husband James. The couple, who married in 2007, often go running and take part in marathons - although, Naga likes to keep her distance!

Speaking to fellow BBC host Louise Minchin and triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson on their podcast Her Spirit, Naga shared: "When I run, I have my headphones in, brilliant music, and I don't run side by side, I run in front because I want to be on my own. So even though I'm with him, and he's there, we run separately because it's my time."
