A BBC presenter was slapped on live television after he allegedly touched a woman’s breast to move her away from the shot.

BBC News reporter Ben Brown was interviewing the channel’s assistant political editor Norman Smith when a woman walked up to them, and while looking into the camera said, “absolutely fantastic” with a thumbs up. Brown, in an attempt to push her off, ‘unintentionally’ touched her breast.
