Emmerdale has had a turbulent few months – with a sacking rocking the cast earlier this week.
The latest dismissal came following an incident at the TV Choice Awards on Monday, with news of the sacked cast member confirmed on Wednesday.
So who has been fired from the soap, and what caused it?
Heres what you need to know…
Who has been sacked from Emmerdale?
This week has seen Asan NJie, who plays Ellis Chapman, sacked from the soap.
The explosive footage showed a brawl between the soap stars during which Asan appeared to make threats to knife Jamie, who plays Warren Fox in the soap.
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.
