The BBC Breakfast star was quickly inundated with support as she revealed she had made a worrying discovery inside her home.

"Helpful suggestions to help this little one please?”"the 47-year-old wrote alongside a snapshot of a small brown bird resting inside a box. "I came home to see it on its back in the house.
"Set it free in garden but is obviously weak and was only going to be caught again. Have provided water and seeds and a box to rest in. What next? X."
Naga took to Instagram to ask fans for help
Her followers had plenty of advice for the TV host. "If we found any birds that had been caught by a cat we'd put it in a shoebox with warm bedding and a lid and let it de-stress in the dark and quiet," one revealed. "They'd often be fine and fly away after a rest."
A second shared: "Looks like a young female blackbird. Possibly a cat has had her. I would leave her in a quiet place and comfortable as they can have a bit of shock. She should be OK in about 24 hours but if not, try your local wildlife sanctuary/rspb."

"It is stressed," advised a third. "Cover the box with a light cloth for a period of time to allow the bird to calm down. After a while when you lift the cloth it will hopefully fly away!"
A large number of people suggested that Naga get in touch with her local wildlife rescue centre – and she later had some good news for her followers.
