NAGA Munchetty has bagged a role on a BBC One show – and it’s a far cry from BBC Breakfast.

The 47-year-old journalist is best known for her no nonsense approach to interviews on BBC Breakfast.

However, she will be the one in the spotlight after it was confirmed she will be one of the celebrities taking part in The Weakest Link.

Comedian Romesh Ranganathan hosts the BBC quiz show, which puts celebrities knowledge to the test against the clock as they try and add as much money as possible to the prize pot for charity.

The second series hosted by Romesh will begin next month and as well as Naga, former Westlife singer Brian McFadden and Drag Race UK winner Lawrence Cheney will also take part.

Other celebrities confirmed include radio presenter Scott Mills and Ruby Wax, and they stand the chance of winning £50,000 for charity.

The series will have themed episodes including Strictly Come Dancing, a Christmas special, New Year’s Eve, daytime TV, food and drink and sports.

Romesh, 44, previously said of the show returning for a second series: “I’m delighted to be doing another series, partly because it’s a fun show and the response has been amazing, but mainly to avoid ‘Turns out Romesh was The Weakest Link’ headlines.”

Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC added: “Led once again by our Ringmaster Romesh, viewers can expect plenty more laughs and almost certainly loads of back stabbing too as the nation’s favourite quick fire quiz returns, I can’t wait!”

Pete Ogden, Executive Producer BBC Studios commented: “I am so excited to make The Weakest Link again out of Pacific Quay in Glasgow.

The show was previously hosted by Anne Robinson from 2000 before it came to an end 12 years later.

“It was wonderful to see the last series land so well with viewers and there’s nothing we love more than putting celebrities under pressure and making them vote each other off.

“Romesh is a treat to work with and I can’t wait to unleash him on another batch of celebrities.”

The Weakest Link returns in December on BBC One.
