Mark Wright has reignited his feud with Danny Dyer after the pair got into a fight at V Festival last year.

The EastEnders actor was out with his daughter and friends when he was kicked in the head by one of former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark’s friends at the event last August in Chelmsford, Essex.

Eyewitnesses claimed at the time that Danny was left sprawled on the floor as he made his way back to his luxury camping accommodation after Justin Bieber’s performance.

Danny was left with a black eye just two weeks before his wedding to his wife Joanne Mas.

The mood between the stars began to darken when Danny allegedly called Mark rude names backstage on the Saturday night last summer, prompting the radio host’s pal to set upon Danny.

Mark, who was not involved in the physical altercation himself, shouted at his friend and the soap actor to stop fighting.

Danny and Mark later attempted to talk to one another as their friends began to gather and take sides behind them, at which point security rushed in to break up the heated discussion.

And now, a representative for Mark has shunned Danny, showing tensions are still fraught between the pair.

Mark has a DJ residency at the Hotel BH Mallorca in Magaluf in the summer and he is reported to have ensured he’s booked for the entire season to avoid another run-in with Danny at a festival.

But a representative says Mark has not jetted off to the sunshine island simply to steer clear of Danny, and suggested Danny is irrelevant to Mark.

They told the MailOnline: “Who is Danny Dyer and why would I care about him? Mark has a big new job that he starts at next week and we’re all excited for him.”

Danny and Mark first began feuding four years ago when Mark allegedly threw insults at Danny at a charity event.
