BBC Reporter Slapped After Grabbing Woman’s Boob On Live TV


Things went a bit tits up earlier today when a BBC presenter appeared to grope a member of the public on live television.

People were left a mixture of shocked and confused when Ben Brown was seen to touch the woman’s breast as he conducted an interview in Bradford, reports The Telegraph.  

Mr Brown was discussing the now officially released Labour manifesto with the BBC’s assistant political editor Norman Smith when a female passer-by briefly intervened.

You can watch the incident here:

She labelled the manifesto ‘absolutely fantastic’ before Mr Brown reached out to push her away, apparently mistakenly copping a good feel in the process.

Not content to leave it at that, the woman then walked behind him, before giving the presenter a playful slap on the arm while laughing.

Of course it wasn’t long before the folk of Twitter were all over the incident with journalist – and presumably well-known wit – Jason Farrington commenting: “Bit of a boob by Ben Brown…”

But Mr Brown himslef didn’t seem to phased by boob-gate, later tweeting:

Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford – just tried to minimise disruption but v tricky live on air – completely unintentional

As yet the BBC has declined to comment.
