Danielle Lloyd needed hospital surgery following a nightclub attack, her management said today.

Lloyd was at Crystal Nightclub in London's West End when the brawl broke out in the early hours of yesterday morning.

She needed stitches for a back wound and also sustained a more serious injury to her leg which required "emergency surgery".

A statement from her management said: "Danielle sustained a serious wound to her back which required stitches upon arrival at hospital."

Lloyd had been socialising with six friends, including her boyfriend, Spurs star Jamie O'Hara, when the incident happened, the statement said.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant, who was involved in the 2007 race row along with Jade Goody and others, was said to have been thrown on to a table of drinks by two women.

An ambulance was called and O'Hara awaited its arrival outside before travelling with Lloyd to hospital.

Club security detained two women who were then arrested by the police.

Pictures published in today's Sun showed the WAG lying on a pavement spattered in blood.

The newspaper reported that she screamed and sobbed.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said two women were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and were released on bail to a date in July.
