A statement to BBC said: "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."

Farrah's rep has said she was not commenting on the allegations at this stage as the matter is now in the hands of her legal team.

The alleged incident happened on Tuesday night's (22 September) episode of CBBBOTS, where Farrah and Vicki were appearing on the celebrity panel alongside Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace. New CBB evictees Jenna Jameson and Janice Dickinson joined them.

Transmission was cut midway through the show, with viewers left confused as the action from the studio was replaced by a rotating Big Brother eye.

When the show returned to the air, host Rylan apologised for the cut in transmission and said an incident had happened in the studio. He did not clarify what had happened and has since said he can't comment as it's now a legal matter.

Rylan apologised for the show going off-air.

Vicki has claimed she needed medical attention after being struck by glass. Farrah's agent has said Farrah was "assaulted twice" but has not revealed how or who by yet.

An updated police statement today read: "Officers are continuing to make inquiries with relevant parties following the incident which occurred at Elstree Studio's on the evening on September 22. These investigations are on-going at this time. No arrests have been made."

Before transmission had cut, viewers saw Farrah calling fellow panellist Aisleyne a "hag" and Aisleyne replying, "Sorry?" The show then went off-air for several seconds. When it returned, the panel had been removed. The programme ended ten minutes ahead of its scheduled time, to be replaced by live Big Brother house streaming.
