Lewis Capaldi embarrasses Naga Munchetty with explicit word mix-up

Lewis Capaldi left Naga Munchetty red in the face following an awkward mix-up on BBC Breakfast.

The “Someone You Loved” singer appeared on the morning programme on Saturday (24 September), during which he complimented co-host Charlie Stayt on his “great hair”.

“Can I just say, you’ve got great hair. We were talking about it outside,” Capaldi said, with Munchetty mouthing: “It’s a wig.”

“It’s a wig, is it? I didn’t say that. Looks great,” Capaldi said.

“Well you’ve got great hair too,” Stayt replied, with Capaldi offering him a high five.

“Would you like a room?” Munchetty said, with a surprised looking Capaldi asking: “Would I what?”

After she repeated herself, Capaldi said: “I thought you said ‘a rim’.”

Munchetty gasped and covered her face in embarrassment, saying: “The time now, we’re coming on to nine o’clock... We’re going to have a little word with Lewis.”

Earlier this month, Capaldi told fans that he had been diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome, a condition that causes a person to make involuntary sounds and movements known as tics.

The 25-year-old explained that he had chosen to share his diagnosis so that his shoulder twitches weren’t misinterpreted as a sign of drug use.

In an interview, he described a heartbreaking incident before his diagnosis where his dad thought the singer was having a seizure due to his twitches.
