Emmerdale's Asan N'jie and Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas were reportedly embroiled in a brawl at the TV Choice Awards in London on Monday night.
The row between the soap stars at Hilton Park Lane hotel allegedly saw Asan make threats towards Jamie and throw punches at the former I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! campmate.
Asan – who has played Ellis Chapman in Emmerdale since joining the soap a year ago – reportedly had to be hauled off Jamie by members of the security team.
The actor was then thrown out of the glitzy bash, according to The Mirror.
Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer is said to have intervened to take his friend Jamie away from the dramatic situation.
The actor spoke about the brawl to The Mirror, saying: "I told him to relax. I told him 'This isn't that kinda party. It's the TV Choice Awards.'"
A source told The Sun of the brawl: “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 quickly stepped in to defuse the situation and calm Jamie down.
“But 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.”
Other stars at the awards ceremony – including host Katherine Ryan – reportedly had to get themselves out of the way of the row.
Asan has not addressed the situation on his social media, with his only upload from the night being a picture with Love Island star Ovie Soko.
Asan was nominated for the Best Newcomer gong at the awards, but EastEnders' Kara-Leah Fernandes took home the award.
Emmerdale’s broadcaster ITV have said that they are launching a probe into the incident. A spokesman for ITV told The Mirror: "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."
After helping out during the dramatic situation, Malique Thompson-Dwyer was later seen having a cosy chat with Love Island winner, Amber Gill.
At the after-party, Newcastle beauty Amber was seen looking cosy with Malique, days after her split from Greg O'Shea.
In pictures obtained by The Mirror Online, the pair are seen seen sitting next to each other, as they giggle.
The conversation between the two appeared to be going so well that Malique had his arm around Amber.
An eyewitness told the publication: "Amber and Malique were clearly flirting with each other – there was loads of eye contact between them.
"They looked like a great match and even got out their phones as if they were swapping numbers.
"At one point they seemed to be close to kissing, before Jamie Lomas interrupted and started talking to his co-star.
Amber looked annoyed when another girl came over and took Malique's attention off her."
Malique has played Prince McQueen on Hollyoaks since 2015, but left the soap last month in order to focus on his music career.
Prince left the soap after losing his wife Lily to sepsis and dealing with his toxic father Shane.
Malique told The Sun: “Since Lily has been gone, Prince tried to preoccupy himself and take his mind off her, but he’s been really struggling.
“A spark from Prince’s past may be reignited during a summer romance.
“I think Goldie will struggle with the prospect of Prince leaving, most likely feeling left behind once again as she was by her other son, Hunter.
“However, I think he can persuade her that it’s the right thing for him to do.”
Discussing his passion for music, he continued: “I have been doing a lot of music and I’m trying to pursue that and get my music out there.
“However, acting is my main passion which I won’t be giving up.”
Writing on Instagram after his character left the village: “Sorry guys but my time has come. what a journey it’s been and an experience of a lifetime! Man like Prince is gone! Following his dreams and so am I. onwards and upwards.”
