Live television is a tricky business and this reporter got the front seat to this show. While interviewing his colleague, BBC's Ben Brown experienced the fact that things can escalate pretty quickly on live TV.

On Tuesday, Mr Brown and his colleague Norman Smith were reporting on live television at Bradford in England. As they were discussing the Labour Party's election manifesto, a woman entered the frame and grinned away. She mouthed the words 'Absolutely fantastic' and gave a thumbs up. Little did she know that things weren't going to be so fantastic later on.

Brown looked directly at the woman, groped her and tried to push her on the side, saying "Just give us one sec, please."

As he tried to remove her from the frame, the reporter's hand landed somewhere it shouldn't have. At first, the woman looked shocked and almost retreated. But, at least she whacked Mr Brown on his shoulder before leaving.
