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.
