BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty got called out on air during Saturday's edition of the news programme as she handed over to cooking programme Saturday Kitchen.
As Naga and co-star Charlie Stayt finished their interview with guests Professor Linda Bauld and Dr Chris Smith, she then handed things over to a waiting Matt in another studio.
As she introduced Matt, she couldn't resist making a cheeky dig at the chef, saying: "I bet Linda will name drop something, maybe she will name drop Matt Tebbutt or just drop Matt Tebbutt, no no no never!"
Matt quickly hit back: "Is that my introduction?"
Naga replied: "Do you want more?" as Matt said back: "No, unnecessary, unnecessary. Here I am, you're welcome. How are you guys?"
It seemed that Naga and Charlie couldn't hear his question over the video link as they then didn't reply, leaving Matt looking very awkward.
He said: "Brilliant. I love our chats," as Naga quickly burst into laughter during the exchange.
Matt quickly moved on with the link as he said to the camera: "Right our special guest today is Oti Mabuse – shall we chat?"
In a dig at Naga and Charlie, he added to Oti: "Or are you going to blank me as well."
The Strictly star quickly replied: "No, no, no I’ll reply."
Meanwhile, earlier this week Naga and Charlie left viewers hiding behind their cushions as they seemed to have a frosty exchange while presenting together.
As Charlie tried to find an article in a newspaper, Naga appeared to get irritated by how much time he was taking as she told him to "take your time".
Naga said: "This reminds me of a time you told me I wouldn’t pass my driving test if I took it today."
Charlie replied: "I think that’s true. Not you personally, I think a lot of people."
Rolling her eyes, Naga chimed: "I think it was personal."
Fans were left asking if the pair had an argument off-screen because of their frosty demeanour towards each other, with many commenting on the tension.
One said: "Have Charlie and @TVNaga01 had an argument this morning? Very frosty between them @BBCBreakfast."
A second viewer said: "What is nagas problem. I don't think your presenters like each other do they? And it shows, which is why I can only watch for more than headlines when it's Louise/Dan.
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC.
