Another suggested: "I’m sorry but that was a bad decision to make so many subs, especially the only man who scored the points, put England on the back foot hence the yellow card."

A kind-hearted Scottish fan, meanwhile, was empathetic despite supporting the opposing team, replying to Naga's tweet: "England and Scotland played well, I think Scotland were lucky someone had to win. I'll try and be magnanimous in victory you were gracious, dignity and respect to you x."

Naga is a keen sportswoman herself, running regularly and enjoying playing golf on her days off from the BBC, where she hosts a radio show and has been one of the presenters of BBC One's flagship morning show for over a decade.

The busy star expressed some work-related sadness at the end of last year as she expressed her disappointment that Breakfast correspondent Ben Thompson was leaving the programme.

Tweeting in response to her colleague's announcement, Naga sweetly wrote: "I will miss you immensely on-air, but you'll always be my partner in mischief x."
