An MTV spokesperson confirmed that after investigating the alleged comment, producers made the decision to ban Sophie from the show - with an official statement reading: “After an incident last week, Sophie Kasaei was removed from Geordie Shore pending further investigation into alleged offensive behaviour.

“MTV and Lime Pictures have now taken the decision that it is inappropriate for Sophie to return to the show. We will be reiterating to the remaining cast members that offensive behaviour will not be tolerated.”

The race row comes just days after fellow castmates Vicky Pattison and Holly Hagan were arrested following a scuffle in a Newcastle nightclub, which left an 18-year-old with facial injuries after she was allegedly smacked in the face with a shoe.

The girls - who denied any wrongdoing - were later released on police bail, but many fans of the show expressed their shock at the incident on twitter.
