They say you should never work with children or animals. Unfortunately, no one ever told this to Texas morning show host Deborah Duncan who had an embarrassing encounter with a monkey.
In a segment which has quickly gone viral on YouTube, Duncan is punched in the face by Wilson, a capuchin monkey famous for appearing in the Dr Doolittle films.
The telly presenter has only herself to blame - she threatened to take a grape from the creature.
Wilson did not see the funny side and whacked her in the face. However, thousands of YouTube visitors are seeing the funny side of the incident.
