TWO men have admitted getting into a fight outside a bar, which was then owned by a cast member of Towie.
David Steff, 25, of Pevensey Gardens, Hullbridge, and Gokhan Gurler, 30, of Seabrook Gardens, Romford, pleaded guilty to using or threatening unlawful violence and causing others to fear for their safety in a brawl outside Bar Blanco, Rayleigh, last summer.
The bar was owned by Ricky Rayment, who appears in the reality TV show, and his brother-in-law, Danny Salmon, at the time.
One man suffered a broken nose and a female member of staff lost two teeth in the incident, which happened as bouncers at the bar tried to evict a stag party of about ten men in the early hours on Sunday, June 30.
Robert Lennon, 40, of Mapledene, Hullbridge, Robert Sellick, 34, of The Avenue, Canvey, Danny Deller, 40, of Grosvenor Drive, Loughton, and Spencer Joyce, 40, of Harwich Road, Great Bromley, all denied affray at Basildon Crown Court on Wednesday.
They face a trial in October. Steff and Gurler will be sentenced after the trial.
