Munchetty, who has already appeared regularly on the show, will present with Stayt from Thursday to Saturday.

Bill Turnbull and Louise Minchin anchor the programme from the BBC’s Salford studios from Monday to Wednesday.

The Breakfast team underwent a major change when Susanna Reid left to join ITV’s Good Morning Britain in March.

Reid had been a regular presenter on Breakfast for more than 10 years.

Other regular occupants on the Breakfast sofa include sport presenters Sally Nugent and Mike Bushell, with Steph McGovern continuing in her role as business host.

Carol Kirkwood will also remain in her role as weather forecaster for the early morning programme.

Munchetty, who is also a regular presence on BBC World News, was called a “fantastic addition” to the presenting team by Breakfast editor Adam Bullimore.

“She’s already a familiar face to our viewers and very popular with the team. She has bags of journalistic experience and personality,” he added.

James Harding, director of BBC News, said: “Naga brings a depth of journalistic experience and a smart curiosity to Britain’s most successful breakfast programme.

“She’s a terrific broadcaster and I’m sure that she will swiftly establish herself as a key part of the exceptional talented team who draw seven million viewers every morning.”
