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

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.

The woman slapped the presenter's arm and walked away. Soon after the incident, Brown took to Twitter to clarify his position.

Amazing that a British man could get to first base... even accidentally.

He may have touched her 'accidentally' but then he hung on for a few seconds... maybe she reminded him of his momma?

It was a delicate moment. A real moment of confusion for a dude.

He accidentally grabbed a ----, but then once it was already grabbed, that was where it became tricky. Let's break it down;

(with hand on ----)
1 - so, now i've got my hand on her ----, if i jerk it away, it will make it appear like i did it on purpose.
2 - but if i just leave my hand there, it will show how kind and caring i am, and not at all aware i am fondling her.
3 - well, i'm here anyway, may as well give it a little tweak.....

Maybe she was pissed that he let go.

It's obvious it wasn't intentional and she was intruding on the shot. His hand was on her coat most of the time and he looked like he was trying to move her by pushing her stomach area, but her breasts where hanging low.

She wanted attention and she got it.

Yep, those were some hangers and it threw off his aim.
