The 60-year-old TV presenter - who is married to her 'This Morning' co-host Eamonn Holmes - revealed she was carrying a tea tray when the incident occurred and she reacted by threatening violence.

Speaking to Kate Thornton on her 'White Wine Question Time' podcast, Ruth explained: "I remember years ago when I had to take these big trays of tea around at certain times in the day for the VT engineers… it was all men.

"We had a little kitchenette and for some reason it was deemed to be my job as a woman. I remember taking this tray round and a guy pinched my a**.

"I put the tray down, I slapped his tea down, and said: 'If you ever touch me again, I'll break your f****** arm.'"

Ruth also revealed her fury at how women are labelled bossy, while men never face the same criticism.

She said: "'You'd never call a man bossy. I mean if you were a guy and the editor of a magazine, they'd go 'he's so dynamic and young and amazing'.

'Why is it like: 'She's really bossy and annoying'. I think women have had to fight that and to some extent, still do. It will keep changing."
