And it all started over Miss Piggy. Yes, really!
Comedy Central tweeted about The Muppets' Miss Piggy flirting with William after unveiling a new pic of Kermit the Frog's rumoured new squeeze.
Diags replied to the tweet saying it looks like Miss Piggy's "had a bit of work done", then William replied to the remark, and he seemed to have a fair bit of knowledge about the Essex boy too!
But, it ended up getting a little personal, with both stars seemingly accusing the other of having gone under the knife.
The Twitter exchanged played out like this:
Diags: "@ComedyCentralUK @KermitTheFrog @MissPiggy @WilliamShatner miss piggy looks like she's had a bit of work done."
William: "Says the boy from Essex!"
Diags: "@WilliamShatner @ComedyCentralUK @KermitTheFrog @MissPiggy I'm all natural Shatters #beammeupbillyshatner."
William: "Riiiiggghhhtt! If that's what you are trying to convince us of..."
Diags: "@WilliamShatner @ComedyCentralUK Captain? Are u trying to tell me you've never boldly gone where no man has gone before #nip&tuck."
William: "Don't be a tw*t. Aren't you late for your fake tan spray and meeting the boys down at Lakeside?"
Diags: "@WilliamShatner @ComedyCentralUK hahah I like it tw*t, spray tan and lakeside someones done some serious Essex homework #iminwilliamshatters."
We still can't tell if it was a genuine spat or playful banter, but we bet this isn't how Diags envisaged spending his Wednesday morning!
