Actor Craig McLachlan reportedly charged with sex offences

Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show cast

McLachlan was also charged with one count of common assault and another of attempted indecent assault.

McLachlan, who won the Gold Logie in 1990 for being the most popular personality on Australian TV, become a household name after playing the loveable larrikin Henry Ramsay in the TV show Neighbours alongside pop icon Kylie Minogue.

A year ago Australian newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, in conjunction with Australia's ABC, revealed that several female co-stars from the 2014 production of the Rocky Horror show accused McLachlan of indecent and inappropriate behaviour.

A four-week trial is scheduled to commence in the NSW Supreme Court on February 4.

Three months later, Seven dropped McLachlan from the Doctor Blake Mysteries series.

McLachlan's spokesperson has told Sky News Australia that the actor is innocent and will be vigorously defending the charges.

Trent Glover, for the police commissioner, told the court the refusal was one reason why he was abandoning a bid to preclude access to certain documents, produced in response to subpoenas, on grounds of public interest immunity.

Victoria Police laid the charges on Friday, with the 53-year-old to face Melbourne Magistrates' Court on February 8.
