Ed Westwick BBC Show Removed From Schedule”

The BBC has been force to suspend its flagship Boxing Day Agatha Christie drama after one of its main stars was accused of rape.

The three-part Ordeal By Innocence stars Bill Nighy and was set to anchor the BBC's holiday programming.

The actor has vehemently denied two women's allegations that he assaulted them as they slept, one of which is to be investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.

'The BBC is not making any judgement but until these matters are resolved we will not include Ordeal By Innocence in the schedules, ' saidthe BBC.

Filming for Westwick's other BBC project, comedy series White Gold, is now "paused" while the actor deals with allegations of sexual assault that have surfaced this week.

"These are serious allegations which Ed Westwick has strenuously denied", a spokesperson said.

This story is updating.

The former Playboy model recounted her encounter with Seagal during a tryout for "Under Siege 2" on her Sirius XM radio show Thursday.

Westwick has denied the unsubstantiated allegations on his Instagram and Twitter accounts claiming he does not know the actress.

It comes as the actor issued a statement on Thursday evening after a second woman accused him of sexual assault.

Cohen and Wynn allege Westwick sexually assaulted them while they slept at his home.

Earlier, Cohen, who has played minor roles in several movies and TV series, had alleged that Westwick raped her while she was visiting the actor at his apartment with her then-boyfriend, whom she referred to as a producer who was friends with Westwick.

"I told him to stop, but he was strong", she wrote. McCarthy says she walked out of the audition, but Seagal followed her and warned her not to tell anyone.

A representative for Seagal didn't immediately return a request for comment Friday, but a Seagal spokesman has denied the accusations to The Daily Beast.
