BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty returned to the show today – and wasted no time bickering with co-star Charlie Stayt.
Naga, 47, was absent from Thursdays show, with Nina Warhurst replacing her.
But Naga was back on the BBC Breakfast sofa today alongside Charlie, 60, and it didn't take long for the pair to bicker.
They were discussing six foot four jockey, Jack Andrews, and how he would compare to his shorter competitors at the Cheltenham Festival, which is taking place this week.
Charlie said as he read from one of the newspapers: "He's said a couple of things that I said and people said I was being really stupid.

"'Whereas If you're a big lad you can manhandle a horse.'"
He then told Naga: "And he says it's literally because he can get his legs further around the horse.

A confused and unimpressed looking Naga replied: "I'm not sure it would be completely comfortable wrapping your legs around the girth of a horse whilst it's galloping at who knows how many miles per hour.
"When you're galloping you're supposed to be on top of the horse, you can't just sit and bump on the horse."
Charlie then interrupted her, saying: "I think what I'll do is I'll take the testimony of Jack Andrews the jockey over your expertise in the area.
"That's all I'm saying I think he probably knows what he's talking about."
Charlie went on to read the jockey's statement again, but Naga laughed and said: "You've said this already!"
Charlie replied: "I'm just making sure we understand that that is what Jack Andrews said."
