BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty lost for words as her co-star Charlie eats bugs live on air | The Sun

BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty was left lost for words as her co-star Charlie Stayt munched on a bowl of bugs live on air.

The 48-year-old watched on in silence as Charlie, 61, ate crickets as part of a segment on today's edition of the show.

Naga revealed that more than two billion people around the world eat dried insects.

After asking viewers if they'd dare to do the same, they visited a farm in northern Italy that turns one million crickets into food every day.

Naga and Charlie were later joined by Tiziana Di Costanzo, who runs cooking classes at Horizon Edible Insects.

After their chat Charlie decided to have a try at some of the roasted crickets that Tiziana had brought in.

As Charlie picked some up from the bowl Naga said: "I don't think you should try one, I think you should have a few to get the full flavour."

While he munched away the studio fell silent, desperately waiting to hear his verdict.

After a few moments, Naga asked: "Well?!"

So what I'm thinking is that the taste isn't very strong at all. It's really quite a modest flavour. It's not a strong flavour."

Desperate to know what it's like, Naga asked: "What is it? Is it nutty?!"

"A little bit nutty, it's a bit hard to describe really…" Charlie said back.

He then confessed that he could carry on eating them.

Those watching at home were shocked.

One said: "Add 10% crickets for a noticeable after taste, costs 60 times as much. Sounds good!"

Another confessed: "I’m never eating bloody insects."

"Stop trying to make eating insects a thing," a third chimed in.

During the video clip filmed at the farm in Italy, they explained that the bugs are frozen, boiled, dried and then pulverised – which turns into a cricket-based flour which is added to pasta, bread or pancakes.

They are a great source of vitamins and protein.
