Legendary east end hard man Danny Dyer has slammed the cast of TOWIE as ‘Z-list pricks’ and let’s be honest he’d know.
Danny Dyer, who allegedly came to blows with TOWIE star Mark Wright earlier this year, claimed that the cast were ‘untalented, Z-list pricks’ who were deliberately seeking fame.
While chatting to The Sun, the winner of the best soap performer 2016, lamented:
All these Z-list pricks – this TOWIE reality-TV mob just want fame. The ugliest thing.
‘Then they get the fame and refuse to have photos with people as they get above their station.
Then they want respect. You’re not going to get respect because you don’t have a fucking talented bone in your body. Have your bit of fucking fame, go and do your fucking nightclub appearances in Kidderminster, but don’t expect to turn up at the BAFTAs.
Dyer has also claimed that he was attacked by Mark’s friends at V Festival back in August, alleging that one of them confronted his 20-year-old daughter Dani.
Wright denies his part in the altercation but Dyer, in his usual cheeky cockney style, demanded that he name and shame his friends who were involved.
He wrote on Twitter:
No.True. Where was ya?? Do you wanna declare who ya snakey 2 Bob mates are?? Especially the 1 squaring up to my Dani (sic).
Dani, Dyer’s daughter, then went on to call ‘Mark a cunt’ and the backlash forced her dad to intervene, saying he’d never be ashamed of his kids.
Of course this isn’t the first time the z-listers have squabbled, earlier this year Danny and Mark got in a bust up after the reality star allegedly slapped Danny’s mug during a charity match for critically ill children earlier this year
To be fair to Dyer he actually has some talent, so when the inevitable charity boxing match happens we’ll be backing everyone’s favourite fictional pub landlord.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
