Emmerdale star Asan N’Jie has been sacked from the cleaning soap after a struggle with Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas on the TV Choice Awards which was caught on video. The footage confirmed a brawl between the cleaning soap stars throughout the after celebration, with Malique Thompson-Dwyer having to intervene.
At one level, Asan, who performed Ellis Chapman within the present, appeared to make threats to ‘knife’ Jamie – who is ready to return to Hollyoaks as Warren Fox later this yr. The Mirror launched the explosive footage, which led to ITV launching an investigation.
As a outcome, Asan has been axed from the present. A spokesperson for ITV mentioned: “Emmerdale suspended Asan N’Jie yesterday pending additional investigation into an incident at a central London lodge on Monday night time. ITV executives have met with him this morning and as a consequence Asan’s contract has been terminated with quick impact.’
Asan mentioned in an announcement: ‘My behaviour on the TV Choice Awards was fully unacceptable and really a lot out of character. I sincerely apologise to all people who has been affected particularly Jamie Lomas, the entire Emmerdale group, our viewers, ITV, my household, and the organisers of the TV Choice Awards. I’m devastated, settle for full accountability for my actions and I’m decided to study from this.’
Asan was reportedly escorted off the premises of the Hilton Park Lane Hotel by safety after allegedly goading Jamie and threatening to ‘kill’ him. An insider instructed The Sun: ‘Jamie was enraged by the sarcastic dig which appeared to come out of nowhere and was fully unprovoked.
‘It was a real flashpoint which left fellow cast members shocked and one or two people remarking on how it was like a scene from a soap opera.’
The eyewitness continued: ‘It was chaos. They were pushing, shoving and really getting in each other’s faces. They received pulled aside however then went at it once more. They have been each completely livid.’
Asan joined the present final yr and his character Ellis has been concerned in plenty of excessive profile storylines together with a feud together with his brother Billy, a stabbing throughout an evening out and the arrival of his shady businessman dad Al.
