It's believed that Vicki wasn’t directly involved in the incident, but she was reportedly caught in the crossfire, when a bust-up broke out between past housemates Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace and Farrah Abraham.
Sources have claimed that after Farrah branded Aisleyne a “hag”, and she allegedly responded by throwing a glass at the ‘Teen Mom’-turned-pornstar.
Things quickly took a turn for the worse when, according to The Sun, a chair was then thrown, causing producers to briefly halt filming, putting up the ‘CBB’ logo while the scuffle was dealt with.
When normal service resumed, Rylan Clark told viewers: “Unfortunately we did have to pop that [‘CBB’ eye] up there, due to a matter that happened. Unfortunately we have lost our panel for the evening but we are going to carry on because that’s what we do on this show.”
An insider tells The Sun: “It was absolute chaos. Glasses and then a chair went flying and Vicki ended up injured in the process.
“Everyone was screaming and sobbing, and it was very shocking. Vicki, who hadn’t caused anything herself, was caught in the crossfire and ended up being glassed.”
Speaking shortly after the incident, Vicki - who appeared in the most recent series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’, and is perhaps best known for her role in the sitcom ‘Allo Allo’ - assured her Twitter followers she was doing well.
She said, in the early hours of Wednesday morning: “Been checked over...going home now. Bloody hurt! But thank you for worrying, I'm OK...I think!”

Aisleyne has also vowed to set the record straight on her own Twitter page, insisting: “There seems to be a lot of misconstrued stories I will set the record straight I'm tired now.”
Addressing the incident, a spokesperson for Channel 5 said simply: “‘Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’ was interrupted this evening due to an incident on the set.”
The current series of ‘CBB’ has been among the most controversial ever, with several of the housemates receiving warnings from producers for their behaviour, and Tila Tequila being completely removed from the house less than 24 hours after her arrival.
