The TV stars are said to have come to blows at the popular festival.
Ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright was reportedly drinking and filmed jumping on the tents of sleeping V Festival campers, despite a run in between his friends and Eastenders hard man Danny Dyer at the Chelmsford event.
According to eyewitnesses things turned nasty at around 10.30pm on Saturday in the Mahiki backstage area. Here Dyer was said to have taunted Wright by shouting ‘Mark Wright you c*nt. Mark Wright you tw*t’, sparking off an altercation between Dyer and pals of Wright.
Dyer – who was at the festival celebrating a joint hen/stag do – was said to be left with a black eye after friends of the 29-year-old allegedly kicked him in the head. A red mark can be seen under the actor’s eye in a snap taken at the festival the following day.
The scene unfolded in front of Dyer’s 20-year-old daughter Dani. She took to Twitter to reveal her dismay over the incident.
Dyer’s fiancé Jo Mas also revealed her anger over the fight in an expletive filled interview with The Sun, saying:
Although Wright tweeted to confirm that he wasn’t directly involved with the scuffle, this wasn’t enough to appease some social media users, with one branding him a ‘coward’.
Dyer also responded to Wright’s tweet by questioning why the reality star didn’t step in to resolve things.
However, according to a source Mark did try to do just this. He told Danny: “I’ve got a lot of respect for you, I grew up watching The Business. I don’t know how it’s got to this.”
Despite this attempt to diffuse the situation, Dyer couldn’t help hit back at TV personality and his friends in a scathing Tweet.
Danny Dyer and Mark Wright already at odds?
Dyer also appeared to suggest a ongoing rivalry between the pair ahead of the incident, Tweeting the following last Tuesday. The Tweet refers to Mark’s radio show and recent ad campaign for a yoghurt brand.
Wright’s footballer brother Joshua responded to the Tweet the same day. And in doing so also hinted that Dyer and Wright had already come to blows at a charity football match.
