Former Big Brother winner Josie Gibson has shared photos of herself and a friend with bruises and a black eye following an alleged incident in a taxi.
The reality TV star claims that a man they were giving a lift to tried to sexually assault her friend, and that he got violent when they tried to stop him.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Gibson wrote: "Nothing makes me more angry and disturbed than a 'man' that thinks it's acceptable and funny to attack women.
"Just because we were kind enough to give you a lift doesn't mean to (sic) can try and do the things you were doing to her!"
Gibson explains that she tried to stop the assault but the man attacked her, and tried to get back into the taxi after being kicked out.
"I feel so bad for my friend and all she did was stop him and his vulgar sexual advances. She did nothing wrong and he would not stop punching her. I would be absolutely mortified if this was any son of mine.
"I'm so lucky to have the platform to put this vile excuse of a man out there so any woman in their right mind wouldn't go near this pig."
The star ends her message by asking people to share her post and for any women who know of the attacker to come forward.
