Asan N’Jie and Jamie Lomas TV Choice Award spat ‘sparked by sarcastic jibe’
Monday night's TV Choice Awards were thrown into disarray when an altercation broke out between Emmerdale's Asan N’Jie and Hollyoak's Jamie Lomas shortly after the event wrapped.
Caught on video by the Mirror, Asan was seen shouting taunts across the venue, threatening to "f**king knife and kill" Jamie.
According to sources, who spoke to The Sun, the heated row started after the ITV star allegedly aimed a “sarcastic jibe" at him.
The intense scuffle, which saw the two actors come to blows, took place at the London Park Lane Hilton Hotel, and was broken up by shocked co-stars.
An insider alleged to the publication the spat started following a "sarcastic" comment which was "completely unprovoked".
They said: "Jamie was enraged by the sarcastic dig which seemed to come out of nowhere and was completely unprovoked.
“It was a real flashpoint which left fellow cast members shocked and one or two people remarking on how it was like a scene from a soap opera. The bust up was only stopped from escalating as Malique [Thompson-Dwyer] quickly stepped in to defuse the situation and calm Jamie down."

They continued: "It was chaos. They were pushing, shoving and really getting in each other’s faces.
"They got pulled apart but then went at it again. They were both absolutely furious."
During the video, a stunned bystander shouted: "This isn’t that kind of party, bro!"
While another said: “It’s only a TV Choice Award!”
It has now been reported Asan faces crisis talks with the show's bosses after sparking the attack with a heckle made at Jamie.
TV executives explained they will be "investigating" further, and have now launched a probe.
A spokesman for ITV said: “We are extremely concerned to hear about an incident at last night's TV Choice Awards involving one of Emmerdale's cast.
“Obviously we will be investigating and talking to the actor concerned in due course.”
