DUBAI: BBC presenter Ben Brown was slapped live on air Tuesday after he appeared to touch a woman’s chest in an attempt to push her off camera.
Brown was in the middle of an interview with the BBC’s assistant political editor Norman Smith in Bradford when a woman stepped into the shot flashing a thumbs-up sign.
The presenter gently pushed her away and continued with his interview, but not before the surprised looking woman slapped him on the arm and walked away.

Brown later tweeted that the incident was “completely unintentional.”

The BBC stated that no further action would be taken against Brown as it was “clearly an accident.”
