The Wanted star in Twitter row with TOWIE cast
The Wanted star 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 and her mother Debbie of the pair reading their ‘Celebs On Sunday’ magazine interview in bed.
He said: “How ironic is that picture. Is that what you lot call yourselves these days for doing nothing!! #shocking.”
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 stream of insults including describing the 23-year-old 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. 'You know what'll be entertaining?! the crowd in ny next week! can't wait to see ya xo”
Several other stars of the hit ITV2 show then waded in on the argument including Mario’s girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh who admitted: “we r normal people makin the most of an opportunity.”
