Emmerdale has terminated Asan N'Jie's contract after the Ellis Chapman star was involved in an incident at the TV Choice Awards.

Tabloids previously reported that N'Jie and Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas brawled at London's Hilton Park Lane Hotel on Monday evening (September 9), and had to be separated twice.

After initially suspending N'Jie to conduct an investigation, ITV announced today that the star will not be returning to Emmerdale.

"Emmerdale suspended Asan N'Jie yesterday pending further investigation into an incident at a central London hotel on Monday night," ITV said in a statement.

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