BBC Breakfast’s director was on hand to crack the whip and keep the show rolling this morning, as he interjected Charlie Stayt’s “moment” of reflection. It comes after Charlie and his co-presenter Naga Munchetty spoke to the photographer behind the new online exhibition called ‘Take a Moment’ in aid of the mental health charity Mind, which shows several famous faces pausing. 

Kicking off the segment, Charlie said: “When you take a picture of someone with their eyes shuts, it’s usually cast as a mistake.”

“One celebrity photographer has been deliberately asking his subjects to close their eyes and then capturing the results,” Naga took over. 

Those at home then saw a series of black and white photographs appear on screen; from Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Ant and Dec. 

Following an interview with Ray Burmiston – the man behind the camera – Charlie wanted to take a moment for himself, but his director had other ideas. 

“Shall we have a moment now?” He asked his co-star. 

“You’ve got to close your eyes!” Naga replied, urging Charlie to do it properly. 

“Sorry,” he apologised and did as he was told. 

Naga, however, didn’t take part, instead she continued on with the show and read the autocue: “We’d love to see your closed eyes pictures this morning, you can email us or tweet us.” 

“Do you know what just happened then?” Charlie remarked. 

“What?” Naga asked and he explained: “When I said ‘Shall we have a moment’, the director said ‘Move on! Move on!’

“Talk about spoiling the moment!” 

“He does!” Naga agreed and Charlie concluded: “Headlines coming up next.”
