    Former Emmerdale actor Asan N'Jie says he is "devastated" after being fired from the soap, following a clash with a Hollyoaks star at an award ceremony.

    Asan swore and threw punches at Jamie Lomas after the TV Choice Awards, held in London on Monday night.

    "ITV executives have met with him this morning and as a consequence Asan's contract has been terminated with immediate effect," says a spokeswoman.

    Asan claims his behaviour was "out of character."

    "My behaviour at the TV Choice Awards was completely unacceptable," the actor says in a statement.

    "I sincerely apologise to everybody who has been affected especially Jamie Lomas, the whole Emmerdale team, our audience, ITV, my family, and the organisers of the TV Choice Awards.

    "I am devastated, accept full responsibility for my actions and I am determined to learn from this."

    The Mirror claims Asan threatened to "knife" Jamie during the encounter and says the pair were pulled apart by security staff.

    In August, Asan tweeted that he was "grateful for the opportunity flying my way" when his nomination for Best Newcomer was announced.

    Asan was nominated as Best Soap Newcomer at the awards, but lost out to Kara-Leah Fernandes, who plays Bailey Baker in EastEnders, Jamie wasn't nominated.

    Neither actor has commented since the incident took place.

    I have no idea who he is but methinks a little alcohol was consumed!

    Jamie isn’t currently on Hollyoaks. He quit as a full-time regular in 2017, when Warren Fox stole one of his newborn twins from the hospital (the other was in an incubator) and went on the run. He did one episode in 2018, when Warren came back after the mother of his twins faked her own death and he stole the other twin from the hospital and went on the run. He filmed a brief appearance in July 2019, where the mother of Warren’s twins tried to steal the twins back but Warren got them and went back on the run. Despite being wanted for murder and stealing children, Warren will be back as a permanent regular from early next year, so Jamie Lomas is returning to filming in late December.
