The Only Way Is Essex stars became embroiled in a massive Twitter row with The Wanted's Tom Parker after he said they were famous for 'doing nothing'.

Mario Falcone led the insults saying the 23-year-old was 'the ugly one in the band' and that he was just a backing singer for bandmate Max George.

Tom then labelled the English-Italian tailor a '2nd class Mark Wright'.

The row began when Mario's co-star Lydia
Bright posted a photo of her and mother Debbie Douglas reading a joint
interview they had done while sitting in bed.

Lydia wrote: 'Reading our mothers day special interview in celebs on sunday, its FAB.'

Tom then tweeted: 'How ironic is that picture Is that what you lot call yourselves these days for doing nothing!! #shocking.'

Lydia said: ‘I was a professional at changing nappies
at about eight,’ she laughs. ‘But I didn’t mind. Little girls love
playing mothers and babies and while everyone had dollies I had the real
thing.

‘I’ve always been a bit more appreciative. Whenever I’ve got a problem, I know there are people out there who’ve
got it a hundred times worse. It puts things into perspective. So I feel
like, yeah, it was a good thing.'

And Debbie added: 'What was nice, was that this New Year’s Eve, the first four messages I got were from foster children I’d had when they were little. Now they’re 18 and 19.’
