Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clark revealed a little more about the events that caused the spin off show to go off the air last night!
Rylan Clark was on This Morning when he issued an apology to viewers of Celebrity Big Brother, after tempers flared between guests Farrah Abraham and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace.
According to insiders and audience members glasses and chairs were allegedly thrown across the studio, after the live recorded show was cut.
Fellow guest and former ‘Allo Allo’ actress Vicki Michelle was also rushed to hospital, after being caught in the crossfire, allegedly catching one of Farrah’s glasses as she threw it.
Speaking about the incident, Rylan told This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “Obviously I can’t sit here and go into detail because it is a legal matter now, but there was an altercation last night on ‘Bit On the Side’ and we did have to cut transmission which I want to apologise for.”
“Obviously you didn’t get the scheduled programme you were expecting and we ended cutting the show short by a part and went live to the house.”
He added: “There are a lot of stories on social media and I just want to say to people reading stories in the press – please wait until you get an official line from ‘Big Brother’, from me, from the show, so you are aware of what actually happened last night before any fingers are being pointed.”
Explaining his own thoughts on when the incident happened, the former ‘X Factor’ contestant said: “We were on a delay last night – we film the show a bit delayed on Tuesday nights because there’s an hour gap – which was lucky. Some nights we are live, and we say we’re live.
“So luckily enough for us there was a delay and when something like that happens we have to be very very careful.
“It did get serious, but I did speak to Vicki earlier today and she’s good… and I just want to use this opportunity to say a massive thank you to our audience that were in last night, because they were amazing… you made it easier than it would have been.”
It was reported earlier today that police have now launched an investigation into the incident.
Meanwhile, Aisleyne has also given her version of events, revealing that Farrah threw glasses at her after she tried to throw the champagne out of her glass over the ‘Teen Mom’ star.
A Channel 5 spokesperson has said on the matter: “Last night’s Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side was interrupted due to an incident on set. Everyone involved is fine and last night’s events are currently being investigated.”
Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side airs tonight at 11pm on 5*.
