BBC pulling mystery thriller 'Ordeal by Innocence' featuring Ed Westwick”

Last week he was publicly accused of rape.

"I have absolutely not, and am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible".

A second woman has come forward to accuse actor Ed Westwick of attacking her, days after an actress said he raped her.

Kristina Cohen described an alleged encounter in a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday.

In a Facebook post Monday, actress Kristina Cohen said that Westwick sexually assaulted her three years ago.

She says she woke from a nap to find him on top of her. Cohen has filed a complaint with the LAPD.

He said earlier this week: "I do not know this woman". I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman.

BBC bosses have pulled a highly anticipated Agatha Christie drama from its Christmas schedule after rape allegations were made against cast member Ed Westwick. "I certainly have never committed rape".

Ordeal by Innocence was set to be one of the BBC's main festive dramas and follows previous successful Christie adaptations The Witness for the Prosecution and And Then There Were None. The BBC has also indicated that Ed Westwick is also ruled out of the filming of the series White Gold, which aired in the Uk and on Netflix: "The independent production house who takes care of White Gold has informed us that Ed Westwick took a break in the filming while it is driving these allegations". It was expected to be a key part of the BBC's holiday programming.

"These are serious allegations which Ed Westwick has strenuously denied", a spokesperson for the corporation said in a statement. "The BBC makes no judgment, but, until these issues are resolved, we will not include Ordeal by Innocence in the grid ".

Filming began on season 2 of "White Gold" in October.
