EastEnders star Samantha Womack was seen giving the middle finger during an argument with a van driver.
He allegedly used both hands to abuse the driver after he clipped the rear of the vehicle. The 50-year-old reportedly fled in his Range Rover, according to the driver, Mamar Bentouti.
He followed her until she parked at the Gillian Lynne Theater in the West End and got out of his car to point to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe billboard on the wall.
“If you want my name, it’s over there on the board,” he told the driver as he referenced his role in the production.
“This woman was waiting to turn right at a traffic light, but went straight at the last second and hit the back of my work van,” Mamer said.
“I stopped in front of him and asked him for details, but he started yelling and said he was late for work.”
He added to The Sun: “She said she’d be mad if I didn’t run.”
According to the driver, Samantha agreed to give her details, but drove away.
Mamar began taking pictures of her and her vehicle, including a photo of the Albert Square star with both of her middle fingers pointed at him.
The 51-year-old driver was forced to pay £100 for repairs to his work van.
Two months after the alleged incident, Mamar claimed he was still without money and believed he was responsible for paying the bill.
