THE moment Tom Daley's husband allegedly "twists" a BBC star's arm in front of her Love Island ex has been revealed after the case was thrown out.

Dustin Lance Black, 49, was charged with assault after the nightclub spat with The Big Proud Party Agency host Teddy Edwardes, 33.

He wept with relief on Wednesday after the case was chucked out by a judge, who branded the evidence "inconsistent" and "unreliable".

Footage has now been released of the row at at the Freedom nightclub in London's Soho.

Both Edwardes and Black appear to be arguing in front of Olympic diver Daley and Love Island star Amber Gill.

At one point, Daley attempts to calm down the Oscar-winning screenwriter as Amber puts herself between him and her then-partner.

Black, who has two kids with Olympic diver Daley, 29, was hauled before court for allegedly twisting Edwardes' wrist "very hard".

She claimed the row broke out when she asked security to remove another man from the area.

Edwardes said in her evidence that Black began "shouting" at her in her face as everyone, including Tom, tried to calm him down.

She added: “Lance grabbed my left wrist. I had a drink in my hand. He grabbed my wrist and twisted it round so my drink would go all over. He was inches from me.

“It was very hard and really aggressive.”

But Black's defence lawyer argued Edwardes had "completely underplayed" her own aggression.

The court was also read some social media posts Edwardes made where she appeared to downplay the alleged incident.

Throwing the case out, Judge Joanna Cieciora slammed the "inconsistencies and weaknesses" in her evidence.

She also ordered the Crown to pay towards Black's legal costs – although a figure was not revealed in court.

Black, who won an Oscar for his 2008 film Milk, sobbed and hugged his husband as the assault charge was dropped.

He later said: "I am pleased that the judge saw the truth today and ruled in my favour. As the evidence has proven, and I have always maintained, I am completely innocent, and in fact was the victim in this case of a serious assault.
