Channel 10 newsreader Natasha Exelby got real with her co-hosts on Studio 10, on Friday.
She revealed how she recently experienced a UTI, or a urinary tract infection, after her news bulletin – a moment which caught the attention of her colleagues on The Project later that night.
On Friday, morning, Natasha, 32, was asked by presenter Sarah Harris if she was ‘feeling clucky’ as they played a video of an adorable newborn baby.

Natasha said: ‘That bubba is very, very cute but I’m going to be real with you guys on this one… I had a UTI earlier this week that was not contracted in the fun way.
‘So nothing is happening. I’m not interested in anything,’ she continued, leaving the hosts in stitches.
Natasha insisted: ‘It’s a bodily thing that we need to talk about. It is, we do need to talk about.’
High praise: It was a moment that caught the attention of her colleagues on The Project on Friday night. Guest host Claire Hooper (pictured) applauded Natasha’s refreshing honesty, saying: ‘That was magnificent’

‘And you know what, while you’re being honest, I’m going to be honest and say everyone at Channel 10 has a UTI,’ she joked.
Co-host Susie Youssef then asked Waleed Aly to use his prop red button – a reference to former President Donald Trump’s red button for butler service – to request cranberry juice for the newsreader.
She joked: ‘Waleed, can you please press your red button and see if we can get a case of cranberry juice sent down to Studio 10?! That would be amazing!’
Busted: Natasha went viral in April 2017 when she was unaware that she was back on air during a live broadcast on the ABC
Meanwhile, Lisa Wilkinson quipped: ‘How good is truth in broadcasting, I always say.’
Natasha went viral in April 2017 when she was unaware that she was back on air during a live broadcast on the ABC.
The political correspondent was caught daydreaming and staring at her pen for a few seconds, before gasping in shock once she realised she was being broadcast.
She parted ways with the ABC soon after, but the network publicly denied she had been fired or let go due to the blooper, and has moved to Channel 10.
