Making a reference to Naga's love of sport, Carol said it wouldn't be advisable to try and sneak in a game of tennis as "balls will be blowing everywhere".

Hearing Naga crack up over the cheeky reference, Carol quickly added: "Tennis balls (will be flying everywhere)."

As the camera panned back to the studio, Naga could be seen with her hand over her mouth as she tried to stifle her laughter, while her co-star, Charlie Stayt, remained composed and continued to deliver the news.

Carol advised against outdoor sports next week

"So I was a rubbish swimmer at school, I hated it. For so many reasons I hated swimming," she said.

After revealing live on air that she was "not very good at swimming", Naga was offered lessons from Swim England.

"So now I can do front crawl, and I'm quite elegant," she added. "Biggest compliment I got was from one of the teachers who said that if I was younger, she'd have got me into synchronised swimming because I'm a pretty swimmer."
