Asan followed up with a statement of his own, in which he apologised for his actions.
“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,” he added.
