A spokesperson for ITV said: Emmerdale suspended Asan NJie 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 Asans contract has been terminated with immediate effect.

Asan said in a statement: 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.

Asan had played Ellis Chapman in the soap from 2018 – with his character involved in romance with Victoria Barton (Isobel Hodgins), as well as a turbulent relationship with half-brother BIlly (Jay Kontzle).

More recently the character was stabbed in the back during the soaps night out week – and later suffered panic attacks as a result.

Its not know when his character will make his exit from the Dales, but as episodes are filmed some weeks in advance you can expect to see him onscreen for a while.
