BBC reporter slapped by woman after appearing to grab her breast

The unfortunate on-air moment, which reporter Ben Brown described as completely unintentional, happened when the woman interrupted a live broadcast on the BBC News Channel


This is the unfortunate moment the BBC’s Ben Brown was slapped live on TV after appearing to accidentally push a woman by her breast.

The awkward gaffe happened as the woman interrupted the broadcast which was taking place in Bradford on Tuesday.

She appears next to Mr Brown and tries to shout over his interview with correspondent Norman Smith, but as he pushes her away, his hand lands in a rather inappropriate place.

The intruder doesn't take too kindly to the gesture, delivering a mighty wallop to Mr Brown's arm before walking off.

The BBC presenter later took to Twitter to defend himself, writing: “Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford - just tried to minimise disruption but v tricky live on air - completely unintentional”.

Watch the ever so cringeworthy footage above.
