It all kicked off on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side on Tuesday night (September 22), as the show was taken off air by Channel 5 after a heated incident on set caused panelist Vicki Michelle to go to hospital with injuries.
Following the double eviction of Jenna Jameson and Janice Dickinson, Bit On The Side guests Farrah Abraham and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace went at it after presenter Rylan Clark asked Aisleyne whether she missed watching Farrah in the house.
Aisleyne gave a definitive no to Rylan and told US star Farrah: “You’ve got your cheque, get in the plane and f**k off. No one likes you here.”
Farrah fired back with the suggestion that Aisleyne wasn’t “qualified” to comment as she wasn’t asked to join the celebrity version of Big Brother.
Both Jenna and Janice later joined the Bit On The Side panel, but that didn’t distract Farrah from calling Aisleyne a “hag” and telling her to “be quiet”.
Then, the show, which was on a time delay, cut to a still image of the Big Brother eye.
Rylan eventually returned to explain that the celebrity panel was removed due to an “incident”. Bit On The Side continued with only the audience, before being taken off air 10 minutes earlier than scheduled. It was replaced with a brief live feed from the house.
The Sun is reporting that panellist and Allo Allo actress Vicki Michelle was taken to hospital after being caught in the crossfire.
Michelle was allegedly hit with flying glass after her fellow panellists threw champagne at one another. She has since tweeted to say she was “bloody hurt” but has been discharged from hospital.
Channel 5 said in a statement: “Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side was interrupted this evening due to an incident on the set.”
Rylan also tweeted afterwards: “Apologies we had to cut transmission due to reasons out of our control. Thanks to our loyal audience and viewers.”
