The star knows the tragedy of losing a cat only too well, with one of her own sadly dying earlier this year.

Naga's cat Missy died in July, with the star taking to social media to write: "Said goodbye to our darling, sweet girl Missy yesterday. She may have been small, but she was immense in stature. The sweetest cat I've ever loved."

Naga empathised with her colleague

The star caused an outpouring of fan support last month when she candidly opened up about her mental health – and many people related!

The 47-year-old star's Instagram post which sparked the initial social media flurry offered a compelling insight, Naga wrote: "Felt rotten this morning. Didn't want to do anything. Did it. It was hard. I hated it.

"Then I loved the fact that I was doing it. Now am delighted it's over. And v proud of myself. #littlethings x."

The star recently opened up about her mental health

The presenter's Instagram fanbase were quick to applaud her raw, honest declaration about her mental health and many people revealed that they have felt the same way too.

This Morning's Dr Nighat Arif, who often appears alongside Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Alison Hammond on the ITV show, opened up as a result of Naga's message.

"Felt exactly the same this morning. Dragged myself to the pool. Did a swim. Hated it. NOW so thankful I did it", he replied.
