Sacked Emmerdale star Asan N’Jie’s Twitter account is no longer on the site in the wake of his public brawl with actor Jamie Lomas.

His page, @AsanNjie, no longer appears in a search for his account on the social media site.

It comes after he was axed from his role as Ellis Chapman on the soap following his fight with the Hollyoaks star at the TV Choice Awards.

On September 10, a video showing N'Jie confronting Hollyoaks’ Lomas emerged online.

In the clip, N'Jie appeared to be saying: “I’m going to f*****g kill you... I’m going to f*****g knife you”.

Confirming the actor will no longer appear in the show, a spokesperson for ITV said: "Emmerdale suspended Asan N'Jie yesterday pending further investigation into an incident at a central London hotel on Monday night.

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

In a separate statement, the actor added: “My behaviour at the TV Choice Awards was completely unacceptable and very much out of character.

"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 actor, who had been nominated for the best newcomer gong, was ejected from the Park Lane Hilton event by security staff following the alleged incident.

An ITV spokesperson then confirmed managers at the channel intended to speak to him “in due course”, adding that they were “extremely concerned” about the incident.
