In an official statement released on Reid's website, the Celebrity Big Brother winner said that he "assisted police with their enquiries" and as a result "no further action" would be taken against him.

"Alex was arrested at the address he shares with his partner, Chantelle Houghton after she called police following a disturbance," the message confirmed.

"Alex considers this a private matter and therefore is not prepared to comment on it save to say that he assisted police with their enquiries and following that, the police have taken no further action."

Acknowledging the couple's ongoing relationship problems, the statement also said: "The reasons for Alex's arrest have been widely publicised and in some cases inaccurate and based on conjecture."

Reid and Houghton have been engaged since last October are parents to a two-month-old daughter named Dolly.
