Surprising Emmerdale exit storyline for Ellis leaked after Asan N’Jie sacking

Ellis Chapman's exit storyline from Emmerdale has been leaked after Asan N'Jie's sacking.

The Emmerdale actor was booted off the soap for his “unacceptable behaviour” at the TV Choice Awards after he threatened to stab and kill Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas.

Show bosses have confirmed that Asan will stay on screen for another six weeks before his character is quickly phased out.

Sources on the soap told the Mirror it would be “virtually impossible” to remove from upcoming storylines without having to cancel episodes as he has central parts.

Asan was sacked with immediate effect and did not film exit scenes, therefore his departure will coincide with another major exit.

It is rumoured that Ellis will head off to Dubai to join mum Jessie Grant when she heads out for a new teaching job.

A source told The Sun : "Ellis's mum Jessie is leaving the show later this year, and it's likely that Ellis will go along with her.

"It's likely he'll be written out by another character announcing that he's joined Jessie in Dubai.

"He hasn't filmed exit scenes so they'll either have to cut him out altogether or refilm scenes without him. It's proved a nightmare for the show's writers."

Emmerdale do not comment on speculation surrounding upcoming storylines.

Ellis' exit storyline is being prepared by the soap writers and his scenes will air on ITV as normal following his apology.

A show source told the Mirror: “Asan will still appear in the episodes he has recorded which will air for the next six weeks or so.

“There have been some meetings to decide what to do and this seems the most sensible option. We regularly have to rewrite scenes due to cast sickness and so it is not as unusual as it sounds to be suddenly re-writing storylines.

“By next week we will be filming scenes which will help write out Ellis and explain his absence from the show for good.”

The actor clashed with I'm A Celebs star Jamie Lomas at the TV Choice Awards on Monday night in front of mortified guests.

There was chaos at the star-studded London event when Asan yelled: “I’m going to f**king kill you. I’m going to f**king knife you.”

Asan was initially suspended by show bosses before being sacked at the end of the meeting on Wednesday and escorted out by staff.

In a statement released on Wednesday, 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.”

Grovelling Asan explained that he wanted “to learn” from his actions.

In an apologetic statement, he said: “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.”

*Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7pm with an extra episode on Thursdays at 8pm
