Asan N'Jie pulled in for Emmerdale 'crisis talks' after threatening to stab Jamie Lomas at TV Choice Awards

He's prepared to beg for his job

This week's TV Choice Awards proved to be a big night for the stars of Emmerdale, as the ITV soap picked up the coveted Best Soap gong at the ceremony.

However, for one of the show's stars, the night ended in absolute disaster, with Emmerdale actor Asan N'jie being called in for "crisis talks" with the show's bosses.

Asan, who has played the soap's Ellis Chapman for a year, was reportedly involved in a fracas with Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, with the soap newcomer threatening to "kill" the Channel 4 star.

Video footage from the bash on Monday night appeared to show Asan being held back as he confronted Jamie in an ugly altercation that took place at 11pm.

According to The Mirror, Asan said to Jamie: "“Do you think you are a f*****g big man? I’m going to f*****g  kill you. I’m going to f*****g knife you."

The paper reported that the pair had to be "pulled apart" twice by security.

Asan had earlier been nominated for the TV Choice Award for Best Newcomer after his character was stabbed in a knife crime storyline.
