Sacked Emmerdale star Asan NJie, who was recently axed from his role as Ellis Chapman, has avoided police action after a fight at the TV Choice Awards earlier this week which led to him making threats to knife Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas.
The heated exchange was caught on video and saw the two men having to be pulled apart by Im A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! star Malique Thompson Dwyer. Angry Asan had to be escorted from the Hilton Park Lane Hotel as he was shouting threats to kill Jamie.
According to The Sun, the incident was sparked by Asan confronting Jamie over financial issues he has between the Warren Fox star and an actor friend of Asans he coaches, but neither party has spoken out to confirm this.
ITV confirmed that they had terminated Asans contract after investigating the incident but while he has lost his job through the incident, Asan wont be facing police action as a spokesperson for Metropolitan Police confirmed to Metro.co.uk that the incident has not been reported to them.
Asan apologised for the incident, saying in a statement: My behaviour at the TV Choice Awards was completely unacceptable. 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.
