Sam Faiers was victim to a vicious attack by 10 girls last night, leaving her unconscious with facial and head injuries.
The Only way is Essex star was left unconscious and later rushed to Whipps Cross Hospital in East London for an emergency brain scan.
The attack occurred on Saturday night as Sam partied with sister and fellow TOWIE star, Billie at The Jet Black Club near Tottenham Court Road.
The gang of girls were thrown out of the club having allegedly stolen Billie’s Mulberry leopard calf-skin clutch, which had her personal belongings in.
Upon leaving the club, Billie was greeted by the gang and then attacked.
The girls supposedly called Sam from Billie’s stolen mobile asking her to meet her in a field where they would hand back the stolen belongings.
Agreeing, Sam was set upon by the group of ten who kicked and punched her to the ground, running away soon after.
A spokesperson for the sisters said; “It was an unprovoked and horrific attack.”
Support has flooded in for the recuperating star from fans and co stars alike on Twitter.
The Only way is Essex continues to have renewed success with the latest series proving just as popular as the previous, with Giles Coren writing for Vogue‘s October issue; “It’s an Essex girl that most red-blooded men dream of taking up the aisle.”
