It came to light after a woman made a complaint to police earlier this month, reports the Sun.

"At around 1am on Sunday, 1 October 2017, police received a report a woman in her thirties had been sexually assaulted at an entertainment venue," a spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police said.

"Inquires are ongoing and no arrests have been made."

The woman claimed Mr Langley had acted "inappropriately" during the incident at the Band On The Wall nightclub, according to Metro.

"Bruno will now be spoken to by the police and ITV have been made aware they are investigating the incident," a source told the Sun.

"He’s very upset at the allegations but the police are treating the matter very seriously and have formally become involved.

"At this stage, everything is very unclear and, of course, Bruno needs the opportunity to respond to what has been claimed, so nobody is jumping to any conclusions.

"But the feeling is that it makes things easier to rearrange filming, on an informal basis, so the matter can be resolved away from the show."
