During the interview, the singer was full of praise for Naga’s co-star Charlie Stayt, telling him: "Can I just say, you’ve got great hair. It’s a wig, is it? I didn’t say that! It looks great."

Charlie replied: "You’ve got great hair too. That very rarely happens." and the two cheerfully high fived. Clearly feeling left out, Naga joked: "Would you like a room?" Lewis asked her to repeat herself, admitting that he thought she’d said a very risqué comment instead. Lewis’ comments were met with laughter in the studio as Naga quickly ended the chat, saying: "The time now! We’re coming up to 9 o’clock!" 

She continued, revealing that they would be giving the much-loved singer a bit of a telling off, saying: "Lewis Capaldi’s new single Forget Me is out now. We’re going to have a little word with Lewis, the headlines are coming up."

The crew could be heard laughing 

The Before You Go star clearly enjoyed the moment, tweeting a clip from the show and writing: "A classic breakdown of communication." His fans were quick to reply, with one writing: "Had to explain to my mother what [that] was thanks to you pal," while another added: "Hahahahaha this might be your finest work yet." Piers Morgan even replied with a string of laughing crying emojis.

Awkward interviews aside, Naga recently celebrated after receiving the Achievement in Media gong at this year's Asian Achievers Awards. The awards ceremony, which recognises "outstanding contributions and achievements of South Asians", tweeted the announcement on Friday.
