Katie Hopkins has become embroiled in a war of words with Danny Dyer after giving her thoughts on his engagement.

Rather than congratulating Danny on the happy news that his long-time partner Joanne Mas had proposed, she mocked the fact Joanne had popped the question rather than Danny.

Katie tweeted a picture of Danny and Jo with the caption: "No woman should ever propose to a man. Certainly not one with a naff bum fluff beard and dodgy squint."

But not one to let it go, EastEnders star Danny replied: "No I agree...especially when you look like ya face should be on the side of a gothic building..have a nice day ya daft sexist ya."

Katie didn't stop there, however, and began retweeting comments from followers, including one who said: "It's called desperation!!! I'd rather stay unmarried than beg somebody to marry me!"

She then said: "Dyers girlfriend went the full Lorena Bobbitt; being proposed to removes a man's genitals. Too emasculated to say no were we @MrDDyer?"

Lorena Bobbitt is the American woman who severed her husband's genitals with a knife.

Danny responded again, saying to Katie: "I'd pay you a compliment coz I know it upsets ya.....diddums.....but I'll be b*llocked if I can think of one."

Clearly he's been watching Celebrity Big Brother where housemate Katie said that being complimented was her Achilles Heel!

That didn't silence Katie, however, who said: "Oi @MrDDyer boy, who bought the ring? Presumably your bird had to fund her own diamonds too given you gave up your Crown Jewels saying yes?"

Danny then shared a photo of Katie to Twitter with the caption: "If this face had proposed to me girl..... I think my Crown Jewels would have crawled up my arse. "

He also told the columnist to have a "wonderful, spiteful week."

Danny clearly wasn't letting Katie's negativity get in the way of his happiness, as he then wished his followers a very happy Monday.

The actor has been with partner Jo for 25 years and they have three children together.

Announcing his happy news, he said: "Finally my kids will no longer be b*stards....me and @MasDyerJo are finally getting married after a 25 stretch...thanks for the love people."
