Naga Munchetty says she was expelled from school over X-rated drawings

Naga Munchetty says she was expelled from school over X-rated drawings

BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty has revealed how she was expelled from school as a teenager over some X-rated drawings.

Munchetty revealed she wasn't exactly the model pupil in an interview on The Comedy Central show Rhod Gilbert's Growing Pains, where celebrity guests discuss their teenage years.

The 47-year-old did claim she was a 'straight A student', but she did get into a bit of trouble on the final day of school.

In the latest episode of the comedy show, Munchetty revealed getting into trouble at school for drawing penises on her classmates' shirts.

This wasn't the typical day at school, as it was the last day where pupils do typically write on each other's shirts, but Munchetty decided to make it X-rated.

Presenter Rhod Gilbert asked the BBC Breakfast presenter: "Weren't you expelled or suspended or something [for drawing d***s at school]?"

Munchetty responded: "Look, it was the last day of school. It's when you cut loose and all sign each other's shirts."

The presenter then went on to say that she would 'draw pictures' that would lead to her getting expelled.

She continued: "So I got expelled for the shirt I still do have in a cupboard. We would draw big penises and boobs and periods on the shirts."

Elsewhere in the episode, Munchetty admitted that teachers did like her at school, but she did say 'no one' fancied her.

This honest confession brought the host in to ask the BBC presenter about 'love letters' she used to right to a fellow pupil at school.

But Munchetty dismissed these as such, as they were letters that had music lyrics on from a very famous singer.

She said: "I loved Prince, and he loved Prince. So we used to write these letters to each other with all Prince lyrics in them."

The letter sending was described as 'cute' by comedian Sarah Callaghan, while fellow comedy act Josh Jones asked whether she ever ran out of lyrics, to which Munchetty said a firm no.

The breakfast TV host even had some of those original letters on hand on the show, and decided to read one out for her fellow guests and people in the audience.

The letter featured lyrics from the Prince song 'Get Off', which some interrupted as X-rated messages, too.

Munchetty said it was from a time where there was no social media such as 'Insta', and texting was also not a thing. But fellow guest Josh teased the BBC presenter, saying it was not a 'valid excuse' for the letters.
