New 'Made In Chelsea' Star Dave 'Miffy' Mifsud Accused Of Homophobia

'Made In Chelsea' newcomer Dave 'Miffy' Mifsud has been accused of homophobia, just hours after making his debut on the E4 reality series.

The reality star allegedly posted an anti-gay marriage tweet back in May, which was subsequently deleted in time for his first appearance on the show - but not before it had been screen grabbed by Twitter users.

The message read: "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve #gaymarriagef***off"

Miffy also retweeted a homophobic tweet from a user called Joe Parrish last year, in relation to Rylan Clark being voted off 'The X Factor', which read: "Bye rylan you q***r t***"

After the tweets came to light, many disgusted Twitter users questioned why someone with such views had been cast on the show.

One wrote: "Dear @E4MadeinChelsea - when did it Bcome acceptable2feature #homophobic ppl in ur show? @stonewalluk @MiffyUK"

"Perhaps @E4Chelsea will comment on having recruited a homophobic cast member now?" another tweeted.
