BBC Breakfast’s Naga Munchetty mocks Peter Andre as his joke completely fails
BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty seemed to be in a rather jovial mood on Thursday morning, after she gave a cheeky jibe to guest Peter Andre over his joke that didn’t quite hit the mark.
Mystery Girl singer Peter was interviewed by Naga and Ben Thompson via video link.
He discussed his upcoming role in the musical stage production of Grease which will see him play both Teen Angel and Vinco Fontaine.
During the interview, Peter, 48, took it upon himself to make a joke referring to Greece's current travel ban.
The dad-of-four said: "The funny thing is we're talking about Grease and we can't even fly there, which is interesting, so what an interesting time."
But Peter’s joke failed to land and nobody in the studio laughed at his Grease-inspired pun.
Not letting it go, the star added: "I thought that was a bit of a Greek joke but no one actually laughed…"
Naga jokingly responded: "Sorry, we're just clearing away the tumbleweeds for you."
The presenter’s joke seemed to do the trick and left her co-host Ben in stitches.
Moving the conversation nicely along, Peter explained how excited he is to perform in front of a live audience, as it’s been a rather long time due to the pandemic.
"No, it's going to be fantastic bringing that back to the stage and I think people want to get out to the theatre," he explained.
"The theatres have taken a massive hit as you can imagine, including all the people who work on lights, the sound, production, crew. There are so many people that are aching to get back on."
Peter's wife Emily, works for the NHS as a doctor and has been helping out on the frontline throughout the pandemic.
In January reports circulated that Peter had been battling with coronavirus secretly at home.
At the time, a source told The Sun that due to the fact that Emily is out working on the frontline "Pete has no option but to look after his four children as normal and isolate away from Emily at home".
The pop star also appeared on Loose Women in January with his wife to discuss his condition.
He said: "The only things I have noticed I still have no sense of smell, and I went for a small bike ride yesterday and I was completely puffed out, and that never happens to me.
"It's the psychological thing of is it gonna get worse at some point… this is what the problem is."
