Emmerdale star Danny Miller was knocked to the ground in a brawl with a bouncer on a boozy night out as he stood up for a friend.
The fight, which is believed to have been sparked by homophobic comments towards his pal, saw the soap star, 31, pushed to the floor at Skegness's late-night complex The Hive.
The incident happened on the same day that Danny’s I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! crown was handed over to new jungle queen Jill Scott.

According to The Sun, the soap star, who until last year played one of the Dingle family in Emmerdale, was caught on camera squaring up to security staff.
Onlookers claim the actor, who recently returned to the soap for its 50th anniversary, was sticking up for a pal who was targeted with "disturbing" homophobic abuse.
Security staff were "unaware" that the actor was backing his pal and the situation escalated.
Witness, Brandon Driver, 20, said: "I don't know if Miller was injured. It was a hard slam against the wall though, and he did seem to hit his head."
Danny – who won I’m A Celeb in 2021 – was not in Australia to present the crown to the new victor, as expected.
He is said to have been in the seaside town for a nightclub appearance and to turn on the Christmas lights.
The Hive, which has seven venues, said it was aware of the incident and investigations were ongoing.

It added that the actor was in a booth with some friends and some clubbers were allowed in to take pictures with him.
It added: "At some point a clubber who had come into the booth, was at first joking, but then became verbally abusive to a member of Danny's party and made some very disturbing homophobic comments.
"The member of the party was clearly distressed and Danny tried to calm the situation down.
"The door staff proceeded to remove the offending individual but he continued to make homophobic comments."
