Viewers of The Graham Norton Show are shocked after Hollywood star Adam Sandler repeatedly touched British acress Claire Foy's knee during the show - appearing to make her uncomfortable.

As the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein scandal continues the comedian, 51, was criticized for his gestures during the show.

Claire's efforts to pay away his hand appeared to go unnoticed.

Sandler appeared oblivious to what was happening as he told his story.

Viewers took to social media to voice their concerns about Sandler. 

One viewer wrote: 'Adam Sandler touching Claire Foy's knee for no reason, she put his hand back, he then does it again, she looked rightly p***** off.'

Another said: 'Felt very uncomfortable watching Adam repeatedly put his unwanted hand on the knee of Claire Foy.' 

'With all that's happening did I just see Claire Foy looking a little distressed at Adam Sandler's hands all over her knee?', one viewer wrote.

However, on Sunday a spokeswoman for Foy said she had not been offended by Sandler touching her leg.  

A spokeswoman for Foy said: 'We don't believe anything was intended by Adam's gesture and it has caused no offence to Claire.'

While a representative for Sandler said the actor's actions as 'a friendly gesture' that had been 'blown out of proportion'

The funnyman made a similar gesture to Dustin Hoffman on the Jimmy Fallon show at the beginning of the month.
