The Only Way Is Essex star Maria Fowler was embroiled in a war of words over Twitter with an X Factor contestant on Sunday night.
The spat began when the reality star claimed X Factor hopeful Kye Sones had attempted to hook up with her Facebook several years ago, however, his fellow over 28's contestant Carolynne Poole chimed in to defend him against Maria's accusations.
"Is this boy called Kye? i swear he used to message me on facebook about 6 years ago," Maria wrote while watching Sunday night's show. However, Carolynne shot down her admission, writing: "You wish #giveitarest."
Maria replied: "Obviously a reason she is single at her age."
"What is your problem... ? i dont understand why you keep tweeting me? your a very strnge person??"
Maria continued in a lengthy tweet: "When u actually support someone on xfactor then they tweet sh** like that to u... shame thought she seemed a nice girl.. not the way to act when u want to be a serious artist is it! seems like someones gone big time already and she aint even anywhere near the best in the comp #MUG."
Carolynne retorted: "Classy young woman!"
Speaking about the argument, an X Factor insider told The Sun: "Carolynne and Kye are very close on X Factor and she obviously jumped in to defend him."
Do you think Maria was telling the truth?
