Rylan Clark addressed the Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side fight drama during last night's episode of the spinoff show.

But anyone hoping for inside info on what happened was left disappointed. At the start of CBBBOTS, viewers saw a solemn-looking Rylan sitting in the studio alone addressing the camera.

He said: "As you may know, last night's episode of Big Brother's Bit On The Side was interrupted due to an incident on set involving our celebrity panel and the show didn't include those scenes.

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding what happened and lots of it, believe me, inaccurate, but we just wanted to assure you all that everyone involved is fine and these events are currently being investigated. But just like last night, we carry on."

That was all he said.

Police are investigating what happened at the studio, so Rylan did say on ITV's This Morning yesterday that he was limited in what he could say.

There have been allegations that a fight kicked off between panellists Farrah Abraham and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, which led to alleged drink throwing and chairs being thrown. Vicki Michelle, another panellist, needed medical attention, while Farrah's rep has alleged she was assaulted twice.

Channel 5 cut transmission on the show and when it returned the panel had been removed.

Here's what the panellists have said so far:

She hasn't commented herself yet but her rep has claimed she was hurt in the row. A statement read: "Farrah was assaulted twice and received medical attention both last night and today as a result of injuries caused by one of the assaults."

She gave an interview to The Mirror, claiming Farrah was like a "wild animal" and started the row by throwing two champagne glasses at her, one of which hit Vicki in the head. She alleged: '[Farrah] threw the glass at me. It smashed all over the floor and the desk. Because it didn't get me she picked up another glass, threw it and it smashed. She picked up Jenna's glass and threw it.'

She has given an interview to The Mirror alleging Farrah smashed a champagne glass and shattered glass hit her in the head. She claimed: " [Farrah] whacked the glass hard like a discus. It was the base of the glass and it shattered in my hair.

Janice Dickinson
She hasn't commented yet but her rep is quoted as saying Janice did throw a chair in order to protect Vicki from any further harm.

Jenna Jameson
She has denied she and Farrah were booted out of the studio, saying they left on their own accord. She accused Aisleyne of starting the row by throwing champagne, and said Janice Dickinson went on a rampage slinging chairs, hitting Farrah in the head and back.

Channel 5 has only issued the following statement: "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."

Meanwhile, police are investigating. A statement read: "Hertfordshire Constabulary received a report at 10.55pm on the evening of Tuesday, September 22nd regarding an incident which is alleged to have occurred in the Elstree Studios in Borehamwood. The incident occurred a short time before the call. Officers are currently making inquiries to establish the exact circumstances of what happened and will release further details when appropriate."
