BBC's Naga Munchetty admits she's banned from cooking on Saturday Kitchen 'Not allowed'


In a shake-up to the weekend schedule, BBC Breakfast hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty will be replaced by Jon Kay and Rachel Burden as they swap the news studio for the kitchen. The pair will join Matt Tebutt on Saturday Kitchen to talk about their friendship on screen and taste some delicious dishes cooked up by Yotam Ottolenghi.

Matt and chef Yotam are joined by special guests Naga and Charlie on Saturday morning for the latest instalment of the popular BBC cooking show.

There will also be moments from the BBC food archive, including clips from Rick Stein, Keith Floyd, Nadiya Hussain, Sam Evans and Shauna Guinn, and drinks expert Helen McGinn joins via video link to pick the wines to go with the studio dishes.

“Naga is not here, I’m here with Rachel tomorrow morning because you and Charlie are on Saturday Kitchen tomorrow,” Jon remarked.

“Covid resections and well yeah, both,” Naga laughed. “Talking of taste and decency, here’s a man who always upholds that on this programme. Hello Matthew.”

“[It was found] by staff at the tip after they sifted threw mounds of rubbish to find it. That’s going to be one very grateful man.”

Jon replied: “It’s a brilliant story isn’t it?

“Apparently James told the BBC that he was dreading, because of it was Valentine’s Day, he was dreading going back home and saying to my wife, ‘Not only have I…,” he continued before trailing off.

Jon quickly corrected himself: “Not my wife, his wife and telling her…”
