Craig McLachlan charged by police

The award-winning performer has been charged with one count of common assault and eight counts of indecent assault.

Actor Craig McLachlan has been charged with assault and sex offences.

The actor is suing Fairfax Media, the ABC and former co-star Christie Whelan Browne in the NSW Supreme Court, over articles and reports claiming he bullied and indecently assaulted her and two other female cast members during the stage production.

He denied all allegations, saying they were "perhaps made for financial reasons [or] to gain notoriety".

"In either event, they are to the best of my knowledge utterly and entirely false".

He also had a brief career as a singer - reaching number two in the United Kingdom singles charts with his 1990 song Mona.

That same month, McLachlan was ousted from The Rocky Horrow Show with producers The Gordon Frost Organisation announcing it is "not appropriate" for him to continue in light of the sexual assault and harassment allegations against him.

Victoria Police have given the 53-year-old a court attendance notice in relation to the charges.

He now lives in New South Wales and will have to travel to Melbourne for the court appearances.
