Asan N'Jie's Twitter account has been taken down following his axe from Emmerdale.

The actor, who played Ellis Chapman, was fired from the ITV soap following reports of a brawl with Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas at the TV Choice Awards earlier this month.

And now it seems that the actor's Twitter account has been shut down as it's no longer recognised if you search for his username. His Instagram page, however, remains active.

The closing of Asan's Twitter follows ITV's previous confirmation of his termination from the soap. After initially suspending N'Jie to conduct an investigation, ITV later announced that the star would not be returning to Emmerdale.

"Emmerdale suspended Asan N'Jie yesterday pending further investigation into an incident at a central London hotel on Monday night," ITV said in a statement on September 11.

"ITV executives have met with him this morning, and as a consequence Asan's contract has been terminated with immediate effect."

In a statement of his own, Asan dubbed his behaviour "completely unacceptable" and accepted "full responsibility" for his actions.

"My behaviour at the TV Choice Awards was completely unacceptable and very much out of character," he said.
