- Jeremy Vine has shared video he says proves he didn’t almost crash into a man
- Warehouse worker named Tony claimed the BBC host nearly hit him on his bike
Jeremy Vine has released previously unseen footage that he says proves he didn’t nearly cycle into a delivery man, who was shown on video calling the BBC host a ‘p****’.
The man, a warehouse worker named Tony, yesterday told MailOnline that he stood by his words as he thought Vine was going to ‘crash straight into him’.
In videos taken on a street in London, the 57-year-old presenter can be seen avoiding a white van as it pulls out into the road, and then cycling past the man, who is carrying multiple packages.
Now Vine has stoked the ongoing row claiming this was not the case, and sharing camera footage from a second angle which he says proves he was ‘not even level with the man’.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘I see the gentleman who shouted abuse at me in the street last week has now emerged in the Daily Mail, bizarrely, claiming it was necessary because I “rode my bike at him” in a way that caused him to panic.

The man in the video, a warehouse worker named Tony, yesterday told MailOnline that he stoody by his words as he thought Vine was going to ‘crash straight into him’
‘Luckily I managed to find new footage of the incident on another camera.’
Footage of the incident has caused a Twitter storm, and shows the pair’s furious row after Vine had ridden around a van that was stopped across a cycle lane in Hammersmith.
Tony, a father of two, was stood behind the van holding a pile of Amazon parcels as he tried to cross the road.
He can then be seen shouting expletives at Vine, 57, who is a keen cyclist and regularly shares videos of risky encounters he has on the capital’s cycle lanes.
The Channel 5 presenter the replies: ‘What me? Why?’ But the man simply repeats the insult, calling Vine a ‘p****’ a second time.
Speaking to MailOnline about the incident, Tony said: ‘I regret nothing. I called him a pr*** because he was acting like one so I told him straight.
‘He’d cycled around a white van which had pulled out of the junction and was trying to eye-ball the driver as he came past and so wasn’t concentrating on where he was going.

Jeremy Vine responded to Tony’s claims, which he made to the MailOnline yesterday
‘I thought he was going to crash straight into me and I hurried up a bit over the road.
‘He then stopped and looked at me but didn’t apologise so I stared back and called him a “pr***” twice. He asked me why I called him it and I so I shouted back the reason.
‘On his video he only highlights the word “f***” but for some reason the audio of what I actually said to him is distorted – and what I really told him was “because you nearly f***ing hit me”.
‘His face was covered with a scarf and he was wearing glasses but I knew immediately it was Jeremy Vine because he’s the only cyclist around here who has a giant camera poking out his head looking like some sort of Teletubby!’
Vine shared a new video on Twitter today which he says proves he was ‘not even level with the man’
In a heavily-captioned video shared today, Vine gives a rundown of how he believes the incident played out.
He starts the video saying: ‘The guy who shouted abuse at me while I cycled home has gone public to say he was right to do so, because I endangered him.’
Vine goes on to highlight the moment the van pulled out and when he spots the pedestrian.
‘At the point where I move around the van, you see the pedestrian,’ he writes.
‘Always cautious, I am going no more than 7mph.’
As the man walks past, Vine urges viewers to freeze the video, saying it shows that he is ‘not even level with the man’.
The video then shows Tony’s claims about the incident, as made to MailOnline, with a meme of a man responding “oh, really?”‘
It comes after the presenter originally shared a video of the argument, in which he mistook Tony for an Amazon delivery driver.
He tweeted the video with the caption: ‘I know Amazon say they give a personal service, but this is bloody ridiculous.’
