Fiona Bruce, the British newsreader turned presenter, was the target of a "saving foam attack" during the filming of an episode of the 'Antiques Roadshow'. Bruce, who took over from Michael Aspel on the program, was attacked by two men in north Devon, reports the UK's Daily Mirror.
Whilst filming at Hartland Abbey near Bideford, the presenter was sprayed by two pranksters with an aerosol bottle of shaving foam. Devon and Cornwall police have confirmed the 'attackers', aged 42 and 32, were arrested at the scene for common assault and both issued with fixed penalty fines. A Bbc spokesman said Ms Bruce would not be commenting on the matter. Last year, the presenters 'stalker' Peter Oakey was locked up under the mental health act after he continued to send her flowers and greetings cards despite being under a restraining order. At the trial, prosecutors said some cards were inscribed with the words, "I love you Fiona my beautiful firebird" and were signed, "your kingfisher and loving husband Peter".
Since joining the Bbc in 1989, Fiona Bruce has fronted a number of flagship shows, including 'Bbc News at Six', 'Bbc News at Ten', 'Crimewatch' and the long-running game-show 'Call My Bluff'.
