The Only Way Is Essex star attacked by man during night out in Marbella...
The Only Way Is Essex in Spain.
The model and DJ needed emergency dental treatment after the attack, which happened as she prepared to leave a nightclub in Marbella.
She told The Mirror: "Diags went in to get our coats, and I was waiting with Chloe [Sims] and Joey [Essex] when some guy started throwing food at us," she said. "We asked what he was doing and he came over and started laughing. I told him to go away and he punched me in the face.
"It's scary, you have no idea what people are capable of.
"All of the inside of my mouth was bruised. My tongue is swollen and black because I bit it when he smacked me."
The incident will not be featured on the TV show because the foursome were enjoying a night out away from the cameras when it happened.
