The BBC Breakfast presenter apologised for interacting with certain social media posts by ‘liking’ them after she mocked Robert Jenrick for having a Union Jack flag in the background during an interview. The broadcaster has since confirmed no further action will be taken against the 46-year-old.

It started when, along with co-presenter Charlie Stayt, Naga commented on MP Robert Jenrick having a flag on display as he appeared via video for an interview on the show.
