Eastenders star given the ‘V’

Natalie Cassidy, who plays polysexual mum Sonia Fowler in the popular soap, has reportedly been warned by organisers to stay away from this weekend's V Festival after disgracing herself there last year.

According to showbiz gossip hound Victoria Newton in today's Sun, the actress has been barred from ever returning to V Festival after she was (allegedly) caught red-handed, trying to sell her VIP tickets in the grounds of the Chelmsford site last year. If there's one thing worse than a ticket tout, it's a D-list ticket tout.

At the time of writing, it was unconfirmed as to whether or not Abi Titmus would be similarly reproached for soiling the VIP toilets, Ashley Cole for stealing Cheryl, Victoria Newton on principle or Dean Gaffney for just being a w**ker.

Sold-out V Festival takes place this weekend at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire. Stay posted to VF for the web's most comprehensive coverage of the music and celebrity goss as it happens.
