She was held in the country on charges of plotting to overthrow Iran's government since 2016, first in prison and later under house arrest.

Human rights organisation Amnesty International described the project manager as "arbitrarily detained". Last year, her husband Richard went on hunger strike to protest her detention.

Naga shared the good news on social media

Last month, Naga got fans talking for a very different reason after she shared a relaxed photo from her day off at home.

The sweet snapshot showed one of the 47-year-old's beloved cats stretched out on some furniture at the home she shares with her husband, James Haggar.

In the image, a polished wooden floor could be seen in the background on which sat a comfy armchair decorated with a stylish red cushion.

However, several of her fans were worried by the seemingly cosy scene and rushed to the comment section to share their concerns.

They were not sure about Naga's pet's wellbeing, with more than one asking: "Has she passed?" Naga quickly responded to reassure them, writing: "No. Just chilling. Have edited post to make clear x."

The 47-year-old's updated caption read: "Sleep peacefully. (Not passed, just chilling) #grateful X," and many other fans shared their love for the snap, with one kindly writing: "Looking completely content and relaxed, must love the owner."

Naga and her husband share three cats, who are named Xena, Missy and Bella.
