E4's Married At First Sight star Amy Christophers was left stunned after a man slapped her on the bum while she was broadcasting for work.
The 35-year-old, who shot to fame on the dating show, said she "felt sick" after the incident that took place over the weekend.
Amy is a presenter for Racing TV's social media channel Raceday and was at Beverley on Saturday to interview a group of punters.
During the interview, she spoke to a group of men who were having harmless fun with Amy when she asked them to give their best jockey impressions.
However, one of the men decided to overstep and inappropriately touched her.
After they mimicked riding a horse, one of them slapped Amy on the bum before saying "put that online".
Visibly shocked, Amy revealed to the Mail Online that once the cameras stopped rolling she challenged the man on his actions.
She said: "I felt degraded and embarrassed. He was trying to show me up in front of people.
'"After the cameras stopped I turned round and said, 'Do you really think that was appropriate?'
"I don't expect to go to work and have my backside slapped by a total stranger. It's not on. He made me feel sick."
On Twitter, one person downplayed the incident which resulted in Amy hitting back saying she wasn't laughing at the situation.
She said: "I wasn’t laughing!! I was shocked and my a*s was stinging for half an hour! I was working! That is not OK!
"If you think sexual contact without consent is OK then maybe you’re the problem too! I can press charges for it!"
Sally Iggulden, chief executive at Beverley, has since said that they are trying to find the race-goer to issue him with a ban as the track has a zero-tolerance approach to "inappropriate disrespect".
Speaking about the incident, Sally said: "We're appalled by the actions of one individual at Saturday's meeting.
"We reached out to Amy immediately after the incident to offer our sincere apologies and support.
"Beverley racecourse has always operated a zero-tolerance approach to any form of inappropriate disrespect and we're now in the process of studying CCTV footage of the incident.
"Anyone found to have committed any offences of this nature can expect a lifetime ban from Beverley racecourse."
