Danny Dyer has broken his silence following reports he was involved in a ‘five-on-one’ brawl with a group of Mark Wright’s friends. 

It has been claimed the ‘EastEnders’ actor was set upon by the former ‘TOWIE’ star’s friends at V Festival over the weekend, in front of his fiancée Joanne Mas and their daughter, Dani.

Taking to Twitter to finally offer his side of the story, Danny appeared to back up eye-witness accounts claiming he’d been the victim of an attack:

He also addressed Mark’s response to the altercation, in which he claimed he “wasn’t personally wasn’t involved in any physical confrontation”:

Danny then shared a picture of Mark with his friends, in a final dig at the star, writing: “Friends eh. How to ruin ya pals career before it had even started. Legends.”

The actor had been at the festival with his wife-to-be, celebrating their joint stag and hen do in the lead-up to their wedding next month.

She spoke out about the incident in an interview with The Sun, stating: Mark called him a c*** and was egging on his bunch of idiot friends all day.

“There were five guys against one and Danny still went for them, but the most f**king disgusting thing is it was all in front of my 20-year-old daughter. They’re a bunch of talentless Essex t***s.”

Danni also offered her own statement on her Twitter page, writing: “My dad is the strongest person I know he isn’t a fighter… just because he plays good acting [roles] as a hard man does not mean he is that in real life.

“I admit that I was shouting that Mark Wright is a c***. Because his silly mates thought it was okay to barge past my dad knowing he was drunk.”

The alleged altercation comes just days after Mark’s brother Joshua claimed that Danny had been on the receiving end of a “slap” from Mark at a charity football game.

When Danny made a dig at Heart FM - where Mark works as a DJ - Joshua wrote: “You must still be hurting from when Mark gave you a slap in the changing room that day.get over it you melt [sic]”
