Security was called during filming for 'The Only Way Is Essex' series finale after and explosive row broke out between Pete Wicks and Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell
'The Only Way Is Essex' bosses had to call in security after Pete Wicks and Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell came to blows while filming the series finale.
The tattooed hunk and his dark-haired co-star were reportedly embroiled in a huge argument over the show's long-standing star Chloe Sims and Megan McKenna whilst the cast were shooting scenes for the final episode, and it is believed the programme's production team had to step in when the spat escalated out of control.
It is rumoured the pair, who have clashed before over Pete's former flame, were physically prised apart by the crew when they were filming at a mansion house in Coventry as part of a lavish Miami-themed party on Wednesday (26.04.17), and security were forced to remain on site "the entire day" to ensure the duo didn't spark up another conflict.
A source told The Sun Online: "Pete and Gatsby had to be separated before things turned seriously nasty. Security were called and had to stay the entire day as tensions among the cast were running so high."
This news comes after the wannabe rapper slammed the French Bulldog fanatic for ditching his "best friend" Chloe to enjoy a friendship with his ex-girlfriend.
Gatsby - who previously dated the 34-year-old blonde beauty briefly on the ITVBe programme - said in an episode earlier this week: "The geezer is the biggest Jekyll I have ever met - he's a user and he's got no loyalty.
"She backed him to the death and I don't even get on with Chloe but I would never let anybody chat s**t about her or disrespect her.
"If anyone chat s**t about her to me I would say 'listen shut up.'
"She's supposed to be his best friend with loyalty but he's letting people run around saying things."
