Mark Wright found not guilty after Woodford Green bar scuffle

Reality TV personality Mark Wright has today been found not guilty of using threatening behaviour towards a man outside a nightclub.

Mr Wright told police he “saw red” after hearing Tom Grantham, 21, say he was going to throw a brick through the window of Deuces Bar and Lounge, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green.

Redbridge Magistrates’ Court heard a tussle ensued but Mr Wright, who appears on the ITV2 series The Only Way Is Essex, claimed he only wanted to protect himself.

The 24-year-old held his head in his hands as he was cleared and appeared close to tears.

The decision, read out by magistrate Glen Pierre, was applauded by members of his family sitting in the public gallery.
