Regular BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty will be taking on a different role within the BBC to front an evening show.

The TV favourite and Radio 5 Live presenter will be hosting an episode of Have I Got News For You! on Friday, December 8, on BBC One from 9pm. Naga will join Richard Osman and Maisie Adam on the panel.

It's the second time Naga has hosted on the show, which has a whopping 66 series in total, and her third appearance on it overall. Paul Merton and Ian Hislop will be resuming their roles as normal.

It was just earlier this year that she presented the show and impressed the audience, who gave her a huge round of applause as she fronted the show. Less than six months later she's back making her mark on the beloved news show.

Naga will take a look at the top news stories and current affairs of the week. The light-hearted show will then discuss all the goings-on of the world and poke fun where possible.

Her previous stint on the show saw Naga joined by Ruth Davidson and comedian Hugh Dennis. At the time they were discussing the Covid inquiry, which saw Merton and Hislop poking fun at Boris Johnson and the rest of the government.

Naga's stint on the show will be very different to what she's used to on BBC Breakfast. Although talking about news and current affairs comes naturally to the host, it's not often she's able to make fun of situations on TV.

Instead she sits down MPs and many others for the more serious conversations, so Have I Got News For You! is certainly a different twist. The programme, which was originally presented by Angus Deayton, now has a range of guest presenters at the helm.

The show sees two teams battle it out for the win as they answer questions in relation to topic items in the news from the previous week - but the jokes often take centre stage.

After four rounds the host dishes out the scores and reveals which team is the winner, with Merton and Hislop leading their respective teams since the show's launch in 1990.
