BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty, 46, thrilled as she's refused bottle of wine as shopkeeper didn't believe she's over 18

BBC breakfast host Naga Muchetty celebrated 'winning at life' after she was knocked back from buying wine.

The popular news presenter, 46, tried to buy wine at her local supermarket but was refused service because she didn't have ID on her proving her age.

Naga celebrated the moment and took to Twitter to share the exciting moment with her 254,000 followers.

"Am winning at life in a small way this morning… Just been refused to be sold a bottle of wine at the local supermarket by the lovely lady at the till because I had no I.D. YES!" she wrote.

Her fans rejoiced the small triumph with her, with other journalists sharing their similar experiences.

“I got ‘carded’ recently to see if I was over 25 in a supermarket. I was wearing a mask and a hat to be fair. But still," replied her BBC colleague Sophie Raworth, 52.

Sky News journalist Jayne Secker argued youthful looks must be common amongst TV news presenters after she had the same happen to her.

Jayne wrote: “Well done. I was ‘checked’ by an older lady the other day who said I looked ‘much too young’ but she would let me have it. Wanted to kiss her."

Other fans of Naga reassured her, she was 'carded' because she looks so good for her age.

The light-hearted moment was most likely welcomed by Naga who was recently targeted with violent threats.

Naga and her BBC co-host Charlie Stayt were at the centre of an impartiality row after Charlie made fun of the size of a national banner draped in the corner of an office behind Housing Minister Robert Jenrick.

His remarks, and Naga’s reaction to them, led to more than 6,000 complaints to BBC complaint handlers, which were mostly aimed at Naga.

According to Private Eye most of the complaints were classified as showing "overt racism/misogyny" and 70 were logged as "abusive".

Four of the complaints had to be referred to the BBC's security and investigations team due to their threatening nature and the police are now involved.

Naga could be heard laughing as he made the comments, while the Minister grimaced.
