Asan, who was involved in a knife attack on the Emmerdale plot, could be heard screaming in the clip: & Do you think you're a big man? I am going to kill you. I'm going to cut your knife before I try to wipe Jamie.

After the Emmerdale actor had thrown the blow, I ran a celebrity's Malique Thompson-Dwyer into the room to intervene and bundle Jamie.

According to reports, the couple had to be pulled apart twice by security at the Hilton Park Lane hotel in Mayfair, London, with Asan finally escorted by staff around 11 p.m.

Asan left with co-star Jay Kontzle and another woman while Jamie stayed at the hotel until 2:00 am drinking with Love Island star Amber Gill and Malique.
