TV's Les 'started' pub fight.

Byline: By RON QUENBY

A BRICKLAYER who brawled with Coronation Street's Bruce Jones in a pub claimed yesterday: "Bruce started it."

The actor, who plays layabout Les Battersby, said he was "glassed" in the face three days before going a drinking spree which got him suspended from the ITV soap.

But James McGuigan, 25, denies he bottled Jones during a fight at the pub in Conwy, North Wales.

He says the cut on the actor's face happened when glasses were knocked over in the brawl.

A pal said: "James is furious that Jones is playing the innocent while he has been banned from in all pubs in the area.

"Bruce's dog had bitten James and when James confronted him, Bruce threatened to bring in some heavies to sort him out. James threw the first punch and it developed into a brawl."

Jones said later: "You always get some plonker who just wants to annoy Les Battersby."
