In the video, Ben is seen conducting an interview with his BBC colleague, Norman Smith, from Bradford during the Labour Party’s manifesto launch, when the incident took place.

It was here when the woman appeared in the frame. Ben tried to remove her from the frame but his hand landed at the wrong position. The woman, in return, came and gave him a ‘slap’ on his shoulder before walking away.

An embarrassed Ben took to Twitter to clarify, “Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford – just tried to minimise disruption but v tricky live on air – completely unintentional.”

But not everyone bought his argument and many felt that he could have avoided the situation, while some saw a humour in his gaffe.’
