An investigation is under way after a Hollyoaks star was reportedly attacked by a fellow soap actor at the TV Choice Awards.

ITV is looking into reports that Asan N'jie swore and threw punches at Jamie Lomas following the ceremony in Hilton Park Lane on Monday night.

Emmerdale's N'jie, who was nominated for best newcomer, was apparently ejected from the event in Mayfair, London, by security.

An ITV spokesman said the channel would be talking to N'jie "in due course".

She added: "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."

N'jie was nominated for the show's storyline involving his character Ellis Chapman being stabbed, but lost out to EastEnders' Kara-Leah Fernandes.

Lomas has been a soap regular for years, playing Warren Fox on Hollyoaks for more than a decade, and also appearing on EastEnders as Jake Stone. He was the runner-up in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2017.

According to The Sun, it was Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer who split the pair up.
