The men argued ­earlier in a pub after Andy yelled “Emmerdale!” and joked about the actor’s daughter Poppy, 17, who was also there, kissing someone.

Jordon, 53 — TV ex-squaddie Daz Spencer — faces the axe if guilty. GBH convictions often carry jail terms.

A source on the ITV soap said yesterday: “It’s very serious. ­Producers are concerned and weighing up what to do. It’s possible Mark will be suspended — and if found guilty his days would be numbered.”

He was nicked after the alleged July clash in Oldham, Gtr Manchester. Police have now confirmed: “Jordon is charged with GBH and common assault.”
