Luke Tittensor has been axed from Yorkshire-based soap Emmerdale after admitting to attacking a 16-year-old boy.
Last month the 19-year-old actor, who starred as tearaway teen Daz Eden in the show, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm during the incident which took place in Rochdale on February 15 last year.
"As Luke has pleaded guilty to the serious charge of GBH and we cannot condone criminal behaviour, we have met with Luke and his agent to explain his contract with Emmerdale will be terminated," an ITV spokeswoman confirmed. "Luke regrets his behaviour and understands this situation."
The teen actor, who has been with the show since he was 13 and has also appeared in Shameless - in which he played Carl Gallagher - is due to be sentenced on April 29
