Daisy Goodwin, the British TV executive who created ITV's hit period drama Victoria, has claimed she was groped by a U.K. government official.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Goodwin said the incident happened at the British prime minister's official residence 10 Downing Street while David Cameron was in power between 2010 and 2016, having been invited by the unnamed official to discuss a proposed TV show.

"At the end of the meeting we both stood up and the official, to my astonishment, put his hand on my breast," she said. "I looked at the hand and then in my best Lady Bracknell voice said: 'Are you actually touching my breast?' He dropped his hand and laughed nervously."

"I wasn't traumatized, I was cross," Goodwin added. "But by the next day it had become an anecdote, 'The Day I Was Groped In Number 10'."

The revelation - which Goodwin didn't report at the time - comes at a time when several British politicians are being investigated over allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct, sparked by the Harvey Weinstein controversy.

"Now, in the light of all the really shocking stories that have come out about abusive behaviour by men in power from Hollywood to Westminster, I wonder if my 'Keep Calm and Carry' on philosophy, inherited from my parents, was correct?," said Goodwin. "The answer is, I am not sure."

According to the BBC, Downing Street has said it took such allegations seriously and, were a formal complaint to be made, it would investigate.
