An American television weather presenter was chased off camera after the appearance of a giant bee in her studio.

Jennifer Ketchmark, a meteorologist presenting on Fox59, was caught on camera fleeing the studio after what looks to be a giant 3ft  bee invades the Indianapolis weather tower.

After initially joking with her co-hosts about the insect, the weather presenter briefly loses her sense of humour when the bee arrives.

Remaining calm, the presenter screams “Oh my gosh it’s back,” before hotfooting it off camera.

“Let’s get past the tower cam, I don’t want to look at it anymore,” she says as she appears to dodge the bee.

The great footage was caught when the errant bee decided for a close-up, flying right up to the camera’s lens – and appearing larger than life.

After making her escape, she can then be heard laughing off-camera, adding: “I’m going to end up on some blooper reel.”

When Ketchmark starts her weather report for Indianapolis she adds: “I’m going to regret that for a long time.”

Tweeting afterwards, the meteorologist commented: “I did not like this bug surprising me during the live weather,” adding her co-hosts Fanchon Stinger and Dan Spehler, "had me laughing so hard.”
