BBC reporter Ben Brown was left red-faced after he was slapped on live television. During a live interview, he pushed the woman away unintentionally by grabbing her breasts and continued the interview.

He was interviewing BBC’s assistant political editor Norman Smith in Bradford when a passerby wearing sunglasses came into the shot behind them.

She was giving a thumbs up and could be heard saying: “Absolutely fantastic.”

The woman, visibly surprised, then slapped his arm and walked away.

In a tweet later, Brown said the incident was “completely unintentional”.
