Celebrity Big Brother: Best Bits specials on 5* - Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace is to stand trial in March on assault and criminal damage charges over her infamous Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side brawl with Farrah Abraham.

An episode of the spin-off show descended in to chaos during the previous UK vs. USA-themed series in September 2015 when a spat between Aisleyne and Farrah became physical.

Bosses cut the broadcast just as Aisleyne was seen reaching for her glass, forcing it to end ten minutes early. The Big Brother 7 finalist later told The Mirror that she had thrown her drink at Farrah, but denied hurling an actual glass.

However, fellow panellist Vicki Michelle was injured by a flying glass that she accused Farrah of throwing – while Janice Dickinson also allegedly flung a chair to break up the fight.

Farrah and Janice are understood to have been given police cautions for their roles in the incident – but according to The Sun today, Aisleyne refused to accept one as she believed producers had set her up, and as a result the Crown Prosecution Service will now proceed with a trial.

At a hearing in Stevenage last Monday, Aisleyne denied assaulting Farrah – who also claimed to have been injured at the time – and causing criminal damage to her dress.

In a statement, the CPS told the Metro: “Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace was charged by Hertfordshire Constabulary with common assault and criminal damage. The CPS considers all cases in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors. We keep all cases under constant review.”

The 37-year-old’s trial will take place in March and is expected to feature evidence from Vicki, BOTS presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, and the show’s senior producers.

The case has caused controversy in the press as it is expected to cost £15,000 – while Farrah could also be flown in from the US at taxpayer’s expense as a video link could prove impractical. Tory MP Will Quince commented: “The court is not a place to settle petty squabbles between celebrities.”
