    Gethin Jones has revealed that he's in a BBC Breakfast group chat with show hosts including Naga Munchetty and Jon Kay – and they're not afraid to mock one another when the cameras are off.

    But the Morning Live host revealed that it's Naga who has the best banter out of the team, meaning Jon and Nina Warhurst might have to up their game.

    Gethin, 35, spoke exclusively to Daily Star ahead of his Red Nose Day dancing challenge that saw him attempt 24 hours of dancing in the Morning Live Studio from Thursday (March 16) until Red Nose Day on Friday.

    He raised funds for Comic Relief and is joined by a host of Strictly Come Dancing stars including judge Shirley Ballas, presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman and a bunch of show pros.

    Lifting the lid on the "rabbit hole" that is the Breakfast group chat, Gethin said: "I'm on a WhatsApp group with the Breakfast guys in the morning to see what’s going on and what the subjects are and things like that.”

    Asked if banter flying about in the chat, Gethin confirmed: “Oh yeah absolutely. We all laughed the other day because we’d finished our trail with people regretting their tattoos.

    "I don’t know how we got into conversation with Jon and Nina on-air but it ended up with Jon kay announcing that he’s got ‘Gethin Jones’ tattooed across his chest, and I think that's what made the paper the next day.

    "It’s a proper rabbit hole, the Breakfast trail, because you don’t really know where you’re getting to, so after that, you can imagine a few GIFs going around on the WhatsApp group after that.

    Asked who is the funniest member of the chat, Gethin picked Naga as he said: "I’m playing golf with Naga next Thursday after this challenge to have a bit of a catch-up. She’s always funny. She keeps you on your toes."

    Although he admitted Naga's jokes have left him absolutely mortified – it once got so bad that he begged producers to cut her off during a show.

    And it seems Gethin gets teased for finishing third place on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2007, because he admitted: "I get teased a lot for that."

    It's Sally Nugent who likes to tease him about missing out on the glitterball, but it seems Gethin is used to being the butt of her jokes.

    When asked about the time she swiped at his Strictly stint, Gethin quipped: "To be fair to Sal', that's one of the nicest things she's ever said to me."
