She continued: “That wasn’t the case, and it is now the case.

“There are four main presenters who present three days a week, we do the same job, we have the same level of responsibility, the same expectation; we should be paid the same.”

The BBC Breakfast presenter said: “I think it’s shown just how valuable a resource the BBC is – we’ve seen that in our viewing figures.

“We’ve seen it on Breakfast, but all news outlets would have seen a spike because people are more engaged.

“This is the most important thing that’s happened to us, not for a generation, but probably for a century.”

Since joining the BBC, Naga has spoken of how people have started to become interested in her life away from the screen.

Talking to Vogue back in February, she said: “We’re trained as journalists, yes?

“So you don’t get why anyone would be interested in you.

“Our whole joy is to find out the story, not to be the story. I hate being the one questioned. I don’t think I’ve got anything particularly interesting to say.”

BBC Breakfast airs from 6am on BBC One.
