BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty was recently joined by her colleague Hugh Ferris ahead of his sports report on Radio 5 Live. The broadcaster spoke about her home life with her husband James Haggar, where she quizzed listeners about mixing up the “mundane” while being in a third lockdown.

The 46-year-old revealed that she and her other half had decided to switch sides on the sofa in a bid to change up the current normality.

Naga quizzed the sports presenter about his home life where he revealed that he and his wife had run out of ways to switch things up so have resorted to reverting back to the mundane.

The Radio 5 Live host asked: “Hugh, how have you been mixing up the mundane?”

He replied: “I do like the idea of switching up the sides of the sofa. Particularly for me, because I have a deaf ear.

“If I was to put my wife on the not normal side she would very much take that as some sort of insult. That I was not prepared to listen to her for our entire duration on the sofa.

“So we tend to stick as we are. But apart from that it has been 11 months of the mundane and trying to mix it up.”

Hugh explained that the couple had tried everything, from baking to takeaway nights, long walks and even game nights.

He went on: “We even tried having a gin and tonic after work on a Friday night but the problem is that so much mixing up has happened that I actually want the mundane again.”

Naga interjected: “You’re so on your own.”

Hugh remarked: “The mundane is now the mixing up. The same places on the sofas, completely normal, television on, probably not talking very much and we’re very comfortable in that situation.”

Naga then let out a loud snore, as she cheekily pretended to fall asleep following Hugh’s admission.

She quipped: “Sorry, let me wake up.”

As the pair giggled at the radio host’s swipe, Hugh added: “That’s why we mixed it up in the first place!”

Earlier in the programme, Naga turned to her co-star and cricket commentator Alison Mitchell about “switching up the mundane” with her significant other.

“I had a date night with my husband a few weeks ago. He went off to go and pick up a takeaway,” Alison explained.

“I looked at the table and I thought, ‘We always sit here,’ so I went to the other end. We don’t have a big table so it wasn’t a dramatic move.”

Naga remarked: “Change of view though.”

The Radio 5 Live host then suggested the couple switch sides throughout their living space.

Naga said: “You know you have your own side on the sofa, dining tables and in bed, try switching that.

“But I do think it impacts sleep and with the shifts that [me and my husband] do, you can’t be messing around with sleep.”

Alison replied: “No, and where we sleep is very much dictated by where the cats are.”

Naga added: “No, my cats get shoved around believe me,” as she cheekily quipped: “But that just shows whose nicest out of you and me, Alison.”

Naga Munchetty airs on BBC Radio 5 Live Mondays to Wednesdays from 10am-1pm.
