Man arrested after former Geordie Shore star falls to her death

A man has been arrested after the death of a glamour model who had appeared in the reality TV series Geordie Shore.

Aimee Spencer, known by her stage name Carla Mai, suffered critical injuries after falling from a first-floor window in Chichester Terrace, Brighton, on July 11.

The 27-year-old died from her injuries at the city's Royal Sussex County Hospital on Monday, a week after the fall.

Sussex Police said a 28-year-old man from Brighton was arrested following the incident on suspicion of attempted murder.

A woman, also 28, was detained on suspicion of possession of a class A drug with intent to supply. Both have been bailed by police until September 5.

On Twitter, Daria Spencer wrote: "I can't believe that my sister has left us. She put up a fantastic fight and I will love her forever. Rip."

Another tweeter wrote: "No no no no nooooo. This can't be true surely. I wasn't only talking to her like a week and a half ago. Wow heartbroken."

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "The 27-year-old woman who fell from a window of a Brighton flat has sadly died from her injuries at the Royal Sussex County Hospital on Monday July 18.

"The woman had been in a critical condition since she was discovered having fallen from the first-floor flat window in Chichester Terrace on Monday July 11 at 9.08am.

"Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of how she fell from the window."
