SATURDAY Kitchen has earned itself a telling-off from BBC bosses after more than 100 people complained about this week's raucous show.
Breakfast hosts Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt were accused of being "obnoxious, rude and self-absorbed" when they appeared as guests.
Many viewers said the pair, who worked their way through wine and cocktails, had tried to take over from host Matt Tebbutt.
At one point Naga, 46, who had taunted him over his questions, told viewers: "For everyone who had turned off the news for a bit of relaxation, don't tune in to Saturday Kitchen."
Charlie then pick up the card with Matt's questions on it, saying: "I want to see the list – he's worked hard on these."
He then read mockingly: "How to you switch off? Great question."
The news presenter then told their host: "My glass is empty. How does this work?" Naga added: "Me too."
One viewer tweeted: "Can someone tell Naga and Charlie they’re not presenting? Constant interruptions. I think Matt deserves a medal for the way he is handling their rudeness."
Another said: "I have to say I think Matt did a brilliant job ‘cos Naga & Charlie were pretty awful guests in my opinion! I thought they were very rude and disruptive- they are fellow presenters!"
A third said: "I'd love to see how the breakfast hosts would deal with equally obnoxious guests."
A statement from the BBC today read: "Saturday Kitchen Live’s format allows for an informal chatty style and the guests are encouraged to feel relaxed in the studio…
"Some viewers found the behaviour and comments of the guests this week to be inappropriate and that they were rude to presenter Matt.
"We appreciate the feedback and we shared it with the Saturday Kitchen team."
The BBC only lists complaints received in its fortnightly report when more than 100 have been received for any given show.
