Police are investigating the events of last night’s explosive episode of Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side after panelist Vicki Michelle was treated in hospital following a bust-up.
Hertfordshire Constabulary have confirmed that they are “making inquiries to establish the exact circumstances” of last night’s event, reported the Mirror.
To be honest, putting professional antagonisers Farrah Abraham and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace on the same panel was only ever going to end one way — and unfortunately it was actress Vicki Michelle who appears to have borne the brunt of their inevitable clash. The Allo Allo! star was apparently “rushed to hospital after being glassed.”
It’s also reported that Janice Dickinson, the latest CBB evictee, threw a chair and CCBBOTS presenter Rylan Clark rushed to calm down the scrapping women.
The incident wasn’t shown on air, as the show was pulled for several seconds before returning to the studio. Clark said: “Hi guys, unfortunately we did have to pop that [CBB logo] up there due to a matter that happened. Unfortunately we have lost our panel for the evening but we are going to carry on.”
Before the programme went off air Abraham could be heard saying, “Hag be quiet, hag be quiet” while Horgan-Wallace was talking. Horgan-Wallace then shouted, “Sorry?” and appeared to be reaching for the glass in front of her.
A CBB source told the Mirror that both Abraham and Horgan-Wallace were “forcibly removed from the studio by security.”
The source continued: “Farrah just went for Aisleyne, it was incredible. Aisleyne didn’t throw her glass, she just chucked the wine at her but Farrah flipped. Then Jenna got involved and security rushed in. Janice picked up a chair and attempted to block off Farrah — it was out of control. In the middle of all of this poor Vicki was hit on the arm by some flying glass. I just couldn’t believe it was happening. Some of the blame has to be down to the producers who were rubbing up every pannellist (sic) so they went onstage spoiling for a fight.”
After the incident Vicki Michelle tweeted her fans to let them know she was OK:
Been checked over…going home now. Bloody hurt! But thank you for worrying, I'm ok…I think! X

Aisleyne got her tuppence-worth in:
Thanx for the concerned tweets I'm fine at home There seems to be a lot of misconstrued stories I will set the record straight I'm tired now

And Jenna Jameson, when asked on Instagram: “Did Aishleyne (sic) start the fight by throwing a glass at Farrah?” simply replied “Yes.”
Surprisingly the two most vocal of this year’s CBB contestants, Abraham and Dickinson, have so far kept schtum on what happened. We don’t expect this to stay that way. Stay tuned for “exclusive” revelations in a gossip magazine. It seems this feud has only just begun…
UPDATE: On Sept. 24, Vicki Michelle revealed that she was planning to press charges against Farrah Abraham. A statement released on her behalf to media outlets read: “Actress Vicki Michelle MBE is this morning with Hertfordshire police and will be pressing charges against Farrah Abraham, who struck the back of her head with great force with a glass during the recording of CBBBOTS this week. Vicki has been in show business for 40 years and has been left in deep shock and with concussion after the attack by Ms Abraham.”
