BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent left squirming as Vernon Kay shuts down 'basic' question – and fans aren't impressed | The Sun

BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent asked a seemingly "basic" question, only to be swiftly shut down by Vernon Kay, leaving her visibly flustered – and fans were less than impressed.

The news journalist appeared on the iconic red sofa alongside her co-star Jon Kay this morning.

Broadcaster Vernon Kay joined them on the show to chat about his latest adventure – tackling a grueling 115-mile Ultra Ultra marathon.

In an exciting segment, Sally introduced the incredible BBC Radio 2 DJ who is about to embark on a grueling 110-mile run from Leicester to Bolton for BBC Children in Need.

Vernon who will be setting of in 'about 45 mins' time spoke to both Sally and Jon live from Leicester.

The TV star told the BBC Breakfast hosts that he was feeling 'nervous' right now and was wondering, 'Can I do it?' as well as 'have I done enough training'.

Vernon said: "We had a big team dinner, a big meeting and now I am feeling really nervous, I'll be honest, because the moment has arrived, we will set up in 45 minutes, we will go live to Zoe Ball on Radio 2."

He continued: "But the nerves have built and built and now I'm thinking can I do it?, have I done enough training to get through this epic challenge?"

Sally immediately stepped in and questioned Vernon: "How on earth do you train for something like this?"

"How do you train for something like this?" Vernon said straight-faced. "Well, by running, you just go running," he added before chucking at Sally's fairly obvious question.

Vernon continued explaining: "I've been doing my finest Forrest Gump impression, lots of miles under the belt, different tempo, I have been doing long runs at a slow pace and short runs at a faster pace, then short and slow and long and fast."

Sally, who was squirming and attempting to defend herself, exclaimed, "See! It's more complicated than you said."

"Sorry for being cheeky!" Vernon quipped later when the interview finished.

However, fans were unimpressed with Sally's interview questions, and some rushed to X/Twitter to express their displeasure.

One worte: "Sally Nugent asks Vernon Kay how he trains for a long charity run. His answer was classic: "I go running!" A sample of the in-depth interviewing Nugent brings to."

A second added: "Sally just asked Vernon how he trains for a long marathon, and he simply replied by saying he goes running, gotta love him."

A third joked: "What a creative question Sally! Vernon is hilarious."
