The 45-year-old admitted she was delighted for the “underdogs” to come out on top.

In view of her 237,000 followers, Naga tweeted: “Something in my eye #CrawleyTown #FACup.”

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as some social media users quizzed the presenter.

One remarked: “I’m missing something here… Better get Googling to see what’s causing this,” before adding: “Okay…. now I get it! More tissues!”

Another person commented: “Ah Naga, it was good wasn’t it! Doesn’t matter, no one can see your eyes on the radio, blubber away (if you’re still crying tomorrow).”

“As a Leeds fan dreadful, but congratulations to Crawley well deserved,” a third person added.

Naga had previously retweeted an article after the team secured their third goal which had one social media quiz the BBC host if she supported Crawley.

The presenter replied: “Always on the side of the underdog #CrawleyTown.”

Elsewhere, Naga has since revealed she made a major U-turn after claiming there is “no way” she is doing Dry January.

The broadcaster admitted she shouldn’t be making herself “feel better” with food and alcohol any longer.

Dry January is a popular movement in the country, which sees many forgo drinking in the first month of the year.

Speaking on her radio show, the BBC host spoke candidly about the changes she will make this month.

“I’ll tell you where I’m at right,” she had started. “Before the [lockdown] announcement, I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m doing Dry January.

“‘There’s no way I’m doing anything like that, I like my wine’.”

It was then that Naga’s colleague interjected, telling her: “You can’t go out anyway!”

Naga recalled: “I spoke to my husband last night, and I said, ‘No I think I may just stop drinking.

“I can’t keep relying on something… food, wine, whatever, to make me feel better’.”

She added: “There is that almost kick back.”

Naga Munchetty returns to BBC Radio 5 Live today at 10am.
