'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mar Wright is avoiding V Festival after a fight broke out last year between five of his friends and 'EastEnders' actor Danny Dyer

Mark Wright has reportedly decided not to attend this year's V Festival following his alleged scrap with Danny Dyer at the music festival in 2016.

The 30-year-old hunk has never been one to miss out on the extravaganza, which takes place in Chelmsford, Essex, but has agreed to give it a miss this year after he hit the headline when five of his friends allegedly attacked the 'EastEnders' star at the event after his daughter Danni called the former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star a "****"

A source told The Sun Online: "V Festival ended up being a nightmare for Mark last year. He loves going with his mates but it ended up being so much hassle he wants to distance himself from it. He checked his diary and made sure he was booked to play a gig. Mark just wants to forget about last year and move on from it."

The feud, which took place backstage in the VIP area at the Hylands Park venue, saw Danny, 40, left with a black eye and bruised face.

The five men also reportedly "squared up" to the actor's 20-year-old daughter, Danni.

After the initial bust up, the actor broke his silence and wrote on Twitter: "No daughter should have 2 see their old man being toe punted in the nut by 5 complete p****s. I'm sweet Bae (sic).

Mark subsequently also took to social media following Danny's tweet and wrote: "Seen some stories online today about v festival. I would like to confirm that I personally wasn't involved in any physical confrontation (sic)."

Danny then hit back at the reality TV star - who has recently secured a presenting role in the US - by asking for him to reveal which friends were the ones involved.

He said: "No. True. Where was ya?? Do you wanna declare who ya snakey 2 Bob mates are?? Especially the 1 squaring up to my Dani

"Friends eh. How to ruin ya pals career before it had even started. Legends. Other than that I had a proper night. X (sic)."
