  • Neighbours Star Denies Claims Of Sexual Harassment, Indecent Exposure And Bullying

In a statement, December Media said it would hold production preparations for the new series to "allow due process" and was confident there had been no incidents of inappropriate behaviour during the show's production.

"I don't want to be associated with Craig McLachlan for the rest of my life". You don't do it for money.

"I've hired my own lawyers". I risked my career. "You do it for other women and for yourself".

Victoria Police have confirmed they're investigating allegations of inappropriate behaviour by the 52-year-old.

The "Rocky Horror" producers also said their records showed that none of the complainants had raised a complaint with the company in 2014.

"They seem to be simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety".

"We take these allegations very seriously, and have always endeavoured to prioritise a safe working environment", the producers stated.

Lena Dunham, Jack Antonoff split after five years of dating
Dunham told IndieWire in response that it was "for highly personal reasons" that she was unable to join previous efforts. I stand, humbled, with everyone involved.


Throughout the six years of production of Doctor Blake it has not only been an enormously popular show on air but popular with cast and crew who come back to work on the series year after year Craig has been central to this success both in front of camera and on set.

The show's producers, the Gordon Frost Organisation, said they were taking the allegations against the former Gold Logie victor very seriously.

Three actresses - Christie Whelan Browne, Erika Heynatz and Angela Scundi - have given graphic accounts of McLachlan's alleged conduct, which included claims that he went "off script" during his performances as Dr Frank-N-Furter.

McLachlan is accused of pressing against co-stars on stage, exposing himself, touching their genitals and groping their breasts.

McLachlan was further accused of reaching up an actress's skirt while she was on stage but he was out of sight, and that he had bullied and intimidated some cast members.

"The allegations are ALL made up", the email states.

GFO said McLachlan's withdrawal would not affect the current production of the Rocky Horror Show which is scheduled to run in Adelaide until Sunday and then move to Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne.
