The seventh series of Geordie Shore has reportedly had to be suspended after two of its female stars were arrested.
According to BBC News, after a night out Vicky Pattison and Holly Hagan were both arrested when a fight broke out in the Newcastle bar they were in.
The two reality stars, who return to our MTV screens tonight for the shows sixth series, were both allegedly held for questioning following the incident during which a teenage girl was reportedly assaulted.
