Filming of the reality TV show Geordie Shore has been suspended after two cast members were arrested following a late-night bar fight in Newcastle.

Vicky Pattison, 25, from Newcastle, and Holly Hagan, 20, of Thornaby, Teesside, were held for questioning after a teenage girl was allegedly assaulted.

Northumbria Police said the 18-year-old was treated at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary and later released.

The programme makers said filming had been temporarily suspended.

The alleged assault took place in the early hours of Wednesday at Florita's Bar in Newcastle, where an episode for the seventh series of the MTV show was being filmed.

A spokeswoman for the show said: "Following an incident during filming that has led to a police enquiry into an alleged offence by a member of the cast, MTV and Lime Pictures have temporarily suspended filming of Geordie Shore series seven pending further enquiries.

"The decision has already been taken to remove certain cast members from the production process for the time being."

Northumbria Police has appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

A police spokesman said: "Two women aged 25 and 20 have been arrested on suspicion of assault and are helping police with enquiries."
