BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty shared her delight after her Radio 5 Live co-star Simon King announced temperatures are on the rise ahead of the weekend. However, the broadcaster’s happiness was short-lived after he explained that the UK was on the verge of a high pollen count.

The 45-year-old shared her dismay at the news, after she explained that she suffers from hayfever earlier this week.

It comes after the TV star assumed Britons had sunshine to look forward to during the current lockdown.

“I am delighted to say that the temperatures are getting milder and Simon King I’m looking forward to 17C,” Naga gushed.

“That’s what I’ve seen on the forecast.”

Simon said: “Yes, for some people Naga. That will be down in the south east of England.

“Probably Sunday. But it will feel quite mild across much of the UK, so by the weekend, the temperatures will be in the mid-teens.”

Naga gleefully cheered at the prospect of warmer weather, but the meteorologist swiftly burst her bubble.

“But there’s a caveat though,” Simon commented. “It doesn’t necessarily mean there’s going to be a lot of dry and sunny weather.”

The forecaster explained that despite the milder temperatures, some parts of the UK will see rain and windy weather.

“Don’t think it’s just going to be nice, warm and sunny. Or that there will be sheep and daffodils everywhere,” Simon commented.

Naga interjected: “There is the odd daffodil but there’s still snowdrops. It’s quite bizarre.”

Simon then remarked: “I don’t know if you have seen this but pollen is going to be a problem.”

“Oh god,” Naga replied. “I suffer from really bad hayfever.”

He explained: “When you get a sudden spurge of warm weather after cold weather, that sets the trees and the grass off.

“Even though pollen season doesn’t officially start until March, this may set off sufferers.”

Naga commented: “Can I just say, you’ve managed to turn my enthusiasm of 17C to utter misery.”

Simon chuckled: “You’ll be stuck inside now, won’t you?”

“Yes, popping antihistamines,” Naga giggled.

Hayfever is caused by the high pollen count and tends to worsen when it’s warm, humid and windy weather.

Symptoms usually include sneezing, coughing, blocked or runny nose and people can also experience headaches and pain around their temple.

Naga Munchetty is on BBC Radio 5 Live Monday to Wednesdays from 10am.
