The pair had been reporting live on Friday morning, when the show was suddenly pulled off air.
A news report was interrupted and cut to BBC News, leaving viewers concerned, as behind-the-scenes Naga and Charlie were rushed out of the building, with a live report from Aerospace Bristol changing to a broadcaster covering the Israel-Hamas war suddenly.
‘Hope everyone in #BBCBreakfast studio is ok and it’s just a technical glitch,’ one person wrote.
Another commented: ‘It’s weirdly unnerving.’
Someone else said: ‘Building was evacuated – #bbcbreakfast is back. Phew!’
‘I hope everyone is OK on @BBCBreakfast Odd switch to @BBCNews,’ a fourth penned.
Returning to the red sofa after several minutes, Naga explained: ‘You’re returning to BBC Breakfast.
‘Apologies, we had an evacuation in the building but we are back now with you to keep you up to date with the latest in the news.’
It has yet to be confirmed whether the evacuation was for a fire alarm or another incident.
This wouldn’t be the first time a BBC fire alarm has interrupted live programming.
In March last year, presenters Rachel Burden and Roger Johnson were midway through conducting an interview with The Apprentice winner Harpreet Kaur when they were interrupted.
‘We’ve been disturbed by an alarm which may mean that we have to slow things down for a moment,’ Rachel said, after an alarm went off.
‘I’m so sorry everyone. For the time being, we’re going to have to leave the studios.
‘So we’ll see if we can come back before the end of the show,’ she explained.
Over the alarm, a voice could be heard saying: ‘Attention, attention, please evacuate the building via the nearest exit. Please do not use the lifts.’
