Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt have triggered over 100 complaints after an 'obnoxious' appearance on a cookery show.
Viewers were appalled at the journalists' "'obnoxious, rude and self-absorbed' appearance" on Saturday Kitchen Live.
The duo appeared on the show last weekend as guest stars and were accused of behaving rudely.
The show was presented by Matt Tebbutt with guest chef Yotam Ottolenghi, and the BBC journalists had come in as guests.
But over 100 complaints were logged due to their alleged "appallingly cringeworthy" behaviour.
Social media was awash with fans throwing some serious shade at Naga after the scenes caused a stir, reports The Mirror.
Among the sea of comments, fans wrote: "What is actually Naga's problem? She is coming across as snarky, surly and they are making this show unbearable to watch. Constant jabs at Matt?"
"Anyone else finding Naga annoying?"
"They're totally taking over from Matt and putting him down."
"This is not entertaining to watch."
However, some fans of the show defended Naga's behaviour.

"You obviously don’t watch their handover from BBC Breakfast to Saturday Kitchen every week. It’s their ‘thing’ and happens every week and Matt generally gives as good as he gets."
Matt and chef Yotam Ottolenghi had invited BBC Breakfast presenters Naga and Charlie to taste their food but the show descended into chaos.
During the episode, Charlie and Naga joked Yotam should replace Matt as the host of the cooking show.

The TV host quipped he hadn't managed to ask them any questions leading to further teasing from the BBC Breakfast hosts.
Charlie read out as he took Matt’s cue card. "How do you cope with me putting Matt on edge?"
"Do you want to hear the second question? He’s worked hard on these.
“How do you switch off? And, do you ignore the news when you’re not working?”

"Some viewers found the behaviour and comments of the guests this week to be inappropriate and that they were rude to presenter Matt.
"We appreciate the feedback and we shared it with the Saturday Kitchen team."
