Brawl: It’s thought that Myles was ‘whacked several times after a fight broke out over a seating area’ during a night at Sheesh earlier this week
It all started when Tracey tweeted: ‘Didn’t notice it so much on [the] jungle but what’s with #myles #gmb trying to sound like a black dude??’
The Sun reported that Myles, whose father is Jamaican, hit back with: ‘Please tell me what a “black dude” sounds like Trace?
‘I’ll be sure to tell my “black” side of my family that I sound like them! They’ll be happy! 2020 and racism already starting.’

Upsetting: It all started when Tracey shared this tweet after watching a TV appearance with Myles on GMB and he hit back
He shared a grab of her tweet and continued: ‘Say anything you want about my presenting ability but I will not tolerate racism one bit!
‘Especially when I’m just trying to brighten peoples day & ESPECIALLY when your saying that me & my ethnic background sound a certain way!’
‘You should be ashamed! #FRacistPeople.’
‘I will not tolerate racism’: Myles was furious and had this to say during the exchange
It is not clear if Myles was aware that Tracey is Ellie’s mother at first, but his followers soon alerted him to the fact.
While Ellie herself has stayed mum on the subject, Tracey hastily apologised and asserted that she believes she is not a racist.
She wrote: ‘I’d like to apologise so much to you Myles and any upset it may have caused, I wrote something very childish I’m SO not racist, it was a flippant remark.
‘I feel so totally ashamed about doing, it was taken out of context please forgive x.’
