The Wanted star in Twitter row with TOWIE cast

The Wanted singer Tom Parker yesterday became embroiled in a Twitter row with several cast members of The Only Way Is Essex.

The Bolton singer, currently riding high in the US charts with the band’s single, Glad You Came, kick-started the argument after commenting on a picture posted by the show’s Lydia Bright. The photo showed Lydia and her mum Debbie reading a magazine interview and photoshoot that they had done for a national newspaper.

Tom said: “How ironic is that picture. Is that what you lot call yourselves these days for doing nothing!! #shocking.”

TOWIE co-star Mario Falcone then leapt to Lydia’s defence, replying: "Is he the ugly one in the band? Working? u mean recording songs others have written?” before launching a string of insults, including describing Tom as merely a ‘backing singer’ to bandmate Max George.

Tom then responded by labelling Mario as a ‘2nd class Mark Wright’ before adding: "Sorry, I can't hear your comments from playing wembley stadium”.

Several other TOWIE stars then got involved in the argument, including Mario’s girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh who admitted: “we r normal people makin the most of an opportunity.” Oh dear, it's quite simply all kicking off. Who are you supporting, The Wanted or TOWIE?!
