BBC BREAKFAST'S Carol Kirkwood was left red-faced as her co-star Naga Munchetty couldn't resist taking a swipe at her age.
Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt presented BBC Breakfast on Thursday while Carol Kirkwood delivered the latest weather reports.
During the episode, the BBC presenter made a cheeky dig at Carol Kirkwood as she and Charlie Stayt announced the news of the first coins bearing King Charles' image.
Introducing the topic on the show, Naga said: “The first 50 pence coins bearing the image of King Charles are going to enter circulation today.”
Charlie continued: “Five million are being distributed to post offices and will be given out to customers.
The BBC host explained that the sculptor Martin Jennings used pictures of King Charles on his 70th birthday to make the new image, before adding it was his "smallest piece of artwork" to date.

“There’s the nostalgia,” Naga said. “Carol, do you know that feeling?
“Do you remember you’d get really excited because you’d have a new picture of the Royal Family or a special minted coin. You’d be excited about it and you’d keep it and not spend it.”
Seeing the humour in Naga's comment, Carol replied: “That’s absolutely right and when the new coins came out as well I remember that.
“We lost the thrup’nny bit and we picked up a half pence and a one pence.”

A red-faced Carol, smile and replied: "Why did I say that?"
“Thrup’nny bits, you never want to lose them,” Naga joked.
After the slightly embarrassing on-air moment, Carol then delivered the latest weather forecast to BBC viewers, warning them of the "cold day" ahead.
