In a series of tweets Dan, 26, slammed his dad for selling stories to the media.

He wrote: “People have sold LIES about me in the past to the press for some £££ and attention… but my own dad doing it now too great dad he is.”

One user replied to the star saying: “Wunt even call him that word mate.”

To which Dan replied: “True mate, some people don’t even deserve to be called a ‘dad’.”

In another the dad-of-two tweeted: “My dad’s quote in the Sun about my texts, “he sounded like he was on steroids”… How can you SOUND like you’re on steroids!!

“Be careful secret Juice heads…. we can read it in your tweets!!”

His furious tweets comes after Jim exclusively spoke to The Sun about not going to his son’s wedding.

Jim revealed that the spat started after he didn’t join Dan’s stag do in Las Vegas because he had to look after his young son.

Jim – who split from Dan’s mum Toni in 2001 – has a three-year-old son with his new wife, Becky, and felt that it would be inappropriate to leave the tot at home.

He told the publication: “I thought Dan would understand, being a dad himself. I said, ‘My son needs me — he’s a little boy and is not going to understand’.”

But Jim is now alleging that Dan responded with a text saying: “Are you going to bother coming to the wedding?”

“I replied saying, ‘If this is my invite, then no’,” Jim told the tabloid. “I thought it was obvious they didn’t want me there and I wasn’t invited.”

He went on to say: “Fame has definitely changed Dan. It has got worse since he has been with Jacqueline.

“I don’t want to blame her but he has become more distant with people who love him.

“It is very upsetting, especially as I have always been there for him. And I am not sure it will ever get better.”

Fearing that the two may not be able to put their differences aside Jim added: “I want to wish them all the best and wish things were different.
