TOWIE: Gatsby starts HILARIOUS feud with Pete Wicks - "King of Essex"

The Only Way is Essex rivals Liam Gatsby and Pete Wicks declared war on one-other during episode three of the ITVbe series.

Following simmering tension surrounding an incident where Gatsby had danced with Pete’s girlfriend, the two finally clashed in a hilarious public feud.

Here’s the battle of who could provide the best one-liner…

King of Essex

Gatsby – who has labelled himself ‘King of Essex’ because no-one else would willingly give him that nickname – charged into a juice bar in his best dad shirt to meet Pete Wicks’s girlfriend, Shelby, and her close pal.

All TOWIE drama happens in juice bars.

It was here where Gatsby came out with the quote of the series so far.

Shelby and her mate labelled the pocket-sized player “disgusting” for spreading rumours that Shelbz was grinding on him during a night out

Man-like Gatsby only had one thing to say…

Gatsby said: Do you not think I get models grinding up on me all over the world?”

The girls tried to contain their laughter at Gatsby’s bulging self-confidence as he repeatedly called them “babes” and reinforced his cocky persona by telling them that they’re “nothing special”.

Despite all of this horrendous chat from Gatz, he still had another shocking one-liner up his sleeve before leaving the scene.

If only someone would come along and put him in his place…

Enter Pete Wicks 

Pete approached Gatsby for a little one-on-one chat during the series 22 crew’s big night out, wasting no time in trying to get under the skin of his long-standing Essex enemy.

The pair traded blows as Gatsby sang like a canary, telling Pete that if he “wanted his bird” then he could “have his bird”.

Err, yeah mate.

Pete went on to slam Gatsby for telling everyone within a 100-mile radius of Chelmsford that he had danced with his girlfriend, repeating that he couldn’t care less about the supposed boogie.

Pete said: “The only one getting a hard on about it is you.”

In a battle of who could wind the other one up the most, Pete’s slight hand gesture towards Gatsby’s face area seemed to do the trick.

The explosive scene ended with Pete calling his rival a b*tch before Gatsby signed off with yet another cracking one-liner.

Gatsby said: “You might be the pirate of the Caribbean, but I’m the king of Essex.”
