In a weird goof up, BBC presenter Ben Brown pushed a woman away by her breasts as she attempted to interrupt in a broadcast.

Brown was talking to a colleague, assistant political editor Norman Smith, about the launch of the labour party manifesto in Bradford in front of live camera.

Suddenly, the woman, who is apparently a supporter of Labour candidate Jeremy Corbyn, appeared in the frame in between the two men and said ‘Absolutely fantastic’.

Brown seemed to look at the woman and then push her out of the frame with his hand on her chest all through.

The unnamed woman, who was smiling initially, seemed taken aback by the gesture and swatted Brown on the shoulder before walking off across the camera.

However, Brown later claimed on Twitter that what he did was unintentional.

Twitterati seemed to be divided on the issue. Some pointed out that he looked straight at the woman while touching her chest, so it cannot be unintentional.

He did not even withdraw his hand immediately after touching inappropriately, but continued to push the woman away.

Others commented that it might have been a mistake and hoped Brown would not have to pay for it with his job.
