As BBC Breakfast prepared to talk about the new Scout group, the Squirrels, Naga Munchetty was keen to hear if weatherman Matt Taylor was part of the group when he was younger. However, as Matt admitted his time with the Scouts was very brief due to the “loss” of their leader, Naga despaired as she thought he had died. Fortunately, it was simply a misunderstanding.

Naga asked: “Were you a Scout?” to which Matt replied: “I was a Cub Scout very briefly.”

“Why so briefly?” Naga asked as Matt continued: “Our Cub Scout group was disbanded. Nothing to do with me.”

The BBC host sighed: “That’s really sad,” as Matt added: “I know, we lost the leader.”

As the studio fell silent, the weather reporter quickly assured Naga: “He left! He left!”

Naga laughed as she told Matt: “I thought this was going down a really awful route.”

“No, we didn’t lose him on an expedition either, he just left.”

Charlie Stayt chipped in: “But you got some badges,” with Naga asking: “Were you a Scout?”

“Yeah I was briefly,” Charlie revealed. “It was yeah good.”

Probed on why his time with the group was brief, the host added: “You know, you do different things at different times.”

“Were you kicked out of the Scouts?” Naga asked as Charlie asserted: “No!”

The hosts then turned to their next segment about Scouts, as they announced the new programme, the Squirrels, to recruit four and five year old children.

Matt took to Twitter before he was on television screens to reveal he’d be presenting the winner from the BBC studios in Salford.

Posting a snap of the studios on Twitter, Matt wrote: “Wait a minute …this isn’t Broadcasting House!! Morning from Salford.”

Naga was quick to retweet his post admitting it had been “so long” since they’d seen each other.

She wrote: “It’s been SO SO long!

“The little things (which I realise are the big things now) bring so much joy x.”

Viewers were quick to praise the duo, with one writing on Twitter: “Where have you been, I’ve missed seeing you on BBC breakfast Naga Munchetty.”

Another added: “I really enjoy watching you in the morning, you wake me up. This morning loving your shoes!”

A third joked: “By “little thing that brings you joy”. A bit of a blunt way to describe Matt!!!”
