Joe Swash And ‘EastEnders’ Actor Aaron Sidwell In Twitter Row Over Stacey Solomon Panto Controversy

Come on guys, it's nearly Christmas. Can't you just get along?

We have a late addition to the ‘Unexpected Celeb Rows Of 2016’ list, in the form of Joe Swash and ‘EastEnders’ actor Aaron Sidwell.

It all began when Aaron took to Twitter to share his views on reports stating that Stacey Solomon - who is Joe’s girlfriend - had to read her lines from a clipboard while on stage in pantomime ‘Dick Whittington’.

Alongside a link to a news article, Aaron wrote: “This is shameful. Shouldn’t cash her pay check [sic]”

And while the actor didn’t tag Stacey in the tweet, it wasn’t long before Joe somehow spotted it, and immediately hit back:

Well… There’s not much we can add to that, really.

Reports about Stacey’s not-so-successful Milton Keynes panto debut first emerged last week, and a representative for the star confirmed that she had not been able to attend rehearsals as she in Australia filming ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ spin-off ‘Extra Camp’.

They told MailOnline: “She arrived at the theatre this morning jet lagged and shattered, and got straight on with it.
