Naga Munchetty has confessed she isn't a "sunlounger" kind of person.

And for that reason, she says her honeymoon in Mauritius in 2007 was "one of the most boring holidays" she has ever had.

While the honeymoon side of things went well for Naga and her husband James Haggar, she hated having to stay on the beach after a bad accident on her second day away.

"I'm not a sunlounger person. I don't do that. So – this sounds awful – one of the most boring holidays I had was my honeymoon. And not for the reasons you may think," she told Alan Carr on his Life's a Beach podcast.

Naga and James have been married for over a decade

Naga recalled how she ended up stuck on the beach throughout her whole honeymoon, after she cut her leg on barnacles in the sea.

And under doctor orders, she wasn't able to get the cut anywhere near water for the rest of the holiday.

She said: "The honeymoon side was fine. It was all good

"I got into the sea, hung onto the pontoon and there were barnacles on the post underneath. I didn't realise and slashed my leg. I decided not to tell anyone. Did my water ski round for about 15 to 20 minutes. I came off and blood was gushing from my leg."

She ended up injuring herself on the second day, meaning she was stuck on the beach for the rest of it

"I had to have little mini stitches in it and couldn't shower the leg for the rest of the honeymoon. Couldn't do any more water sports so literally had to sit on a beach or go to the tea plantation. I was a bit bored. And read a lot."

Naga and James visited her father's home country for the break away and Alan was happy to hear she avoided any nasty encounters with sharks whilst she was on holiday.

Alan told her: "You know what I'm thinking? This is me because I have a real shark fear."

Naga's honeymoon was her most boring holiday ever

"Blood in the water. Shark thinking 'mmm tasty meal.'"

"I think we're alright in Mauritius. A shark didn't get me so there wasn't a shark there," Naga quipped back.
