The last season ended in police intervention after reality TV's Farrah Abraham, 24, struck 'Allo 'Allo actress Vicki Michelle on the head with a champagne glass.
The incident happened in September during the Bit On The Side panel show in September and resulted in the actress being taken to hospital.
The incident took place after Aisleyne and Farrah had been arguing during the show over who had 'anger issues'.

As the show was broadcast on a time delay, Channel 5 producers cut to a stationary graphic as the fight kicked off, before later returning to host Rylan Clark, who explained the panel would not be returning due to an 'incident'.
Big Brother 7 star Aisleyne, 36, claimed she attempted to throw champagne over Farrah - not the glass as had previously been reported - but was horrified when the Teen Mom star allegedly threw two flutes at her
Speaking to The Mirror, Aisleyne said: '[Farrah] threw the glass at me. It smashed all over the floor and the desk. Because it didn't get me she picked up another glass, threw it and it smashed. She picked up Jenna's (Jameson) glass and threw it.'
