A Current Affair host Tracy Grimshaw has accepted an apology from the head of Australia’s peak body for travel agents after he said she needed to be “given a firm upper cut or good slap across the face” over the program’s reporting of a travel industry refund scandal.

Australian Federation of Travel Agents chief executive Jayson Westbury made the shocking comments during an online seminar.

“I mean that virtually, of course. I wouldn’t want to invoke any violence on anyone,” he added.

Mr Westbury has since apologised, but resigned from his role on Wednesday.

Grimshaw told Neil Mitchell it was “definitely a poor choice of words” from the travel boss.
