BBC Breakfast viewers rip into Naga Munchetty's 'painful and pointless' interview after string of tech gaffes | The Sun

BBC Breakfast viewers have ripped into Naga Munchetty's "painful and pointless" interview on Thursday's episode.

The 47-year-old journalist spoke to Lisa Seymour who is hoping to get more women cab drivers on London roads.

Naga and co-host Charlie Stayt spoke to Lisa who is helping other women pass the knowledge test for free.

Naga pointed out that the job has traditionally been for men before introducing Lisa and one of her students in South London.

The Knowledge was introduced as a requirement for taxi drivers in 1865 – as taxis can be hailed in the street and asked to go anywhere, taxi drivers must have a thorough knowledge of London.

But unfortunately the segment was plagued by a string of technical gaffes.

Speaking to Lisa and Laura Wall, Charlie asked: "Lisa, first of all, tell us, you are the teacher in this situation.

"Why do you want more women to take up cab driving and why do you think so few do so at the moment?"

But Lisa was unable to hear the BBC Breakfast presenters back in the studio.

Laura held her earpiece as she gestured for her to answer but Lisa whispered “I can’t hear".

After the awkward silence, the presenters decided to direct their questions at her instead.

However, when the camera cut back to the two ladies, Laura accidentally stumbled with Charlie commenting: “It’s all going wrong!”

However, things began to get back on track, with Charlie asking why so few women want to become taxi drivers.

Laura replied: “For me, it was more about the freedom of the job, it's something that I’ve wanted to do for a very very long time.

“I started it in my early 20s, I didn’t get very far, I was young and didn’t take it seriously at the time.

“But, 20 years down the line, I’ve had a son and for me, it’s the freedom of the job and being able to go to work as and when I want."

However, Lisa was struggling to hear the presenters and was seen touching her earpiece throughout.

At the end of the interview, Charlie apologised for the communication issues and said: “It’s a bit like when someone’s in the back of the cab and you can’t hear them properly through the glass.

"It’s one of those mornings this morning!”

However, viewers were left cringing while they watched the segment riddled with blunders.

One wrote: "Pahahaha! This chaos is the most south London thing ever. In the best possible way. #BBCBreakfast!”

Another posted: “This is going well. #BBCBreakfast"
