TOWIE's James 'Diags' Bennewith and Hollywood icon William Shatner exchanged some words via Twitter yesterday...

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!
