BBC presenter Jeremy Vine films ‘horrible moment’ he ‘gets a kicking’ from female driver while cycling home


BBC presenter Jeremy Vine has captured the moment he “got a kicking” from a female driver while cycling home from work in London.

The journalist – who posted the worrying footage on his Facebook page – can be seen being confronted by an angry woman in Kensington.

As he’s riding along, the sounds of a driver honking her horn from behind him appear.

He stopped to speak to her, but instead of a reasonable discussion, the woman driver appears to lose her temper, even swearing at him.

“Why would you do that?” she shouts before getting out of the car and demanding: “Move your bike” as she gestures with her hands.

He then says that she started kicking out and her voice can be heard shouting: “Get the f*** out of the road,” adding: “You lot p*** me off.”

The pair go back to their vehicles, but she once again appears to drive close and honks her horn.

The keen cyclist posted the video online and asked his 41,158 followers to have a look and shared their opinions.

He wrote: “This happened on Friday. I hate to overload our hard-working London police with footage from my commute, but I feel the person you see on the tape will at some point hurt someone very badly – either with her car or in a direct personal assault.”

He also wrote about it on his Twitter profile, saying: “Such a horrible moment on my cycle home. Luckily I filmed it. No fun getting a kicking.”

He did not add any further comment, saying: “Thanks for interview requests about this video. But I think it’s better to leave @metpoliceuk to take this over.” have asked the Metropolitan Police for a comment on the incident.

The incident comes weeks after the Eggheads presenter was confirmed as the new host of Crimewatch alongside lesser known BBC broadcaster Tina Daheley.

The 51-year-old star has been with the BBC for more than 25 years working as a news reader and presenter, also working as a host on Points of View and Panorama.

He took to the Strictly dance floor in 2015 as a contestant in the popular programmes 13th series teamed up with professional dancer Karen Clifton.

The duo were the seventh to be eliminated after they performed a quick-step in the dance off against Jamelia and her partner Tristan MacManus.
