Asan N'Jie's career is hanging in the balance after he threatened to stab ex-EastEnders and Hollyoaks favourite Jamie Lomas at the TV Choice Awards 2019.
The star has been called into the studios for crisis talks with bosses and he is reportedly aware of the chance that he could be sacked.
He was spoken to by senior executives on the phone on Tuesday and will appear in person before top brass at the studios in Leeds this week.
Last night a source close to the soap star revealed: "Asan is beside himself with worry. To quote him he's in 'absolute bits'.
"He knows that his career in Emmerdale could be over. He's someone at the centre of a knife crime storyline who has threatened to stab a fellow actor.
"It doesn't get more serious than that. He will get down on his hands and knees and plead for another chance."
He is expected to offer to take on community work to make amends.
The shocking fight has proved too much for some Emmerdale fans who called for Asan - who plays Ellis Chapman in the soap - to be sacked.
One fan wrote: "You need to sack Asan N'jie. 'I'll knife you'? In this current climate of knife crime? Absolute disgrace."
Another said: "Please tell me that in this current climate of knife crime, you are going to do the RIGHT THING & sack ASAN N'JIE.
"His recorded comments threatening to knife someone are diabolical & must not be tolerated. If you do not sack him you are COMPLICIT. Horrific."
A third concerned soap fan added: "I hope you have immediately sacked Asan N'Jie!!! It is not ok to threaten to knife someone. Absolutely disgusting behaviour."
Asan is an English actor who has been playing Jessie Grant's son, Ellis Chapman on Emmerdale since September 2018.
The star has also starred in shows such as Waterloo Road, Holby City, Casualty, Doctors and Mount Pleasant.
He has also had roles in films such as Murder on the Orient Express and Ready Player One.
