BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty has been accused of using a "slur" against Eurovision.On Friday's programme (May 13), she starred alongside co-host Charlie Stayt and both chatted to Eurovision correspondent David Sillito.During the segment, Naga and Charlie both revealed that they don't think UK entrant Sam Ryder will win, but think he will do well.Talking to David via video link, Naga put a rather controversial question to him on air.Naha asked: "That was our speculation about how the voting would go, and I would not say it's a fair process always, would you?"David replied: "I would say it is evidently fair, that's an outrageous slur on poor Eurovision there, it is also entirely unpredictable."He continued: "You do not know what is going to go on and what drama we have had at the semi-finals."Poor Ireland, poor, poor Ireland is out.

There was such hope they would get through to the final."You have got to remember Ireland is Eurovision royalty having won, I think, seven times."Serbia and Finland were through and they are truly an example of how bizarre Eurovision can be."The reporter confessed he felt positive about the UK's chances this year, especially in comparison to previous years.David added: "What I mean by UK's year is a top 20 finish at least, that's as far as I am going."However, yesterday I got to meet Sam Ryder, we had some time together, and the only thing you can say is wherever you are in Turin at the moment you keep on hearing his song Spaceman and there is a bit of a buzz about it."Naga was also left fuming during the show as Conservative politician Jacob Rees-Mogg branded the Downing Street party fines a "non-story".
