Producers chose to remove Ed Westwick from BBC's Agatha Christie special, Ordeal By Innocence, following the allegations of sexual assault and rape.

Westwick, who had already completed filming for his part, has been replaced by United Kingdom actor Christian Cooke.

The premiere of the small-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie's mystery Ordeal By Innocence has been delayed so Ed Westwick's scenes may be re-shot. The accusations caused the actor's latest project, Ordeal of Innocence, to pull back on it's expected release.

Westwick denied the rape allegations and said, "I do not know this woman".

Ordeal By Innocence also stars Bill Nighy, Anna Chancellor, Matthew Goode, Eleanor Tomlinson, Anthony Boyle, Luke Treadaway, Morven Christie, Crystal Clarke, Ella Purnell and Alice Eve, who will join Cooke on location in Scotland.

The news was announced by co-producers Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Limited, adding that a new air date for the series will be also be announced in due time.

The decision to reshoot Westwick's scenes with a new actor comes weeks after director Ridley Scott opted to replace Kevin Spacey - who is accused of sexual misconduct by multiple men - in "All the Money in the World" with Christopher Plummer, despite the movie having already been completed.

Los Angeles Police Department has received a complaint from one of his accusers and is investigating. Actor Kevin Spacey was sacked from the original Netflix show, House of Cards, and was also replaced in the film, All the Money in the World, by actor Christopher Plummer.

In his most recent Tweet last November, Westwick said he was "co-operating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible".

Westwick has previously appeared in films such as J. Edgar and 2013's Romeo & Juliet, but is arguably best-known for his role in the TV series Gossip Girl, which he starred in for five years.
