THE Only Way is Essex star Junaid Ahmed has revealed he was "scared for his safety" while filming an explosive row with his co-star Jordan Brook.
The 28-year-old claims their awkward run-in on Brentwood High Street turned "aggressive" as tempers flared.
Junaid says Towie producers stepped in after the verbal bust-up, which kicked off after he accused Jordan's relationship with Sophie Kasaei as "fake".
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Junaid said: "Jordan got very aggressive towards me during filming, which I was very shocked about.
"He likes to play the nice guy, but he’s not as nice as what he says.
"He was very aggressive towards me to the point I was actually quite scared about where it could end up going.

"I had to remove myself from the situation to avoid it escalating and going any further.
"For someone to act like that and behave like that towards me says a lot about someone.
"I spoke to everyone in production about it. They were all really good to me and reassured me, but I don't want to be around someone like Jordan. I think he's absolutely vile."
Last series Jordan, 28, introduced his Geordie Shore star girlfriend Sophie Kasaei, 33, onto Towie as the pair moved in together in Essex.

But their relationship ruffled feathers in the group, with Junaid claiming it was a "showmance".
"He is an opportunist," Junaid added.
"Is his relationship as genuine as he says? I don't think so. I think they're both as fake as each other."
Towie continues on Sundays at 9pm on ITVBe.
