TV CELEBRITY Josie Gibson claims she suffered a black eye and severe facial bruises after she was allegedly assaulted in the back of a taxi.
The former Big Brother star claims she was punched in the face by man who she and a number of friends had allowed to share a black cab.
Miss Gibson posted photos online of her injuries and said:
Nothing makes me more angry and disturbed than a man that thinks its acceptable and funny to attack women. He punched my face several times when we told him to get out of the taxi. Then he went for my other friend next to me because we were screaming at him to get out.
Gibson further claimed that the alleged assailant opened the boot of the car and carried on punching her friend, after he was forced out of the back of the cab. She added: “I feel so bad for my friend and all she did was stop him. I would be absolutely mortified if this was any son of mine.”
Gibson became a household name after winning Big Brother of 2010 and has since appeared on a number of TV shows, including The Wright Stuff and Loose Women.
