NEIGHBOURS actor Craig McLachlan has been charged with assault and sex offences in Australia.
Mr McLachlan worked alongside Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan in Neighbours, but also starred in Home and Away and Doctor Blake Mysteries.
He now lives in New South Wales and will have to travel to Melbourne for the court appearances.
Last year, Mr Mclachlan was accused of sexual misconduct by three women who worked with him in 2014 on a production of the Rocky Horror Show.
They said he had touched them inappropriately and sexually harassed them.
Mr McLachlan denied the claims, suggesting they were made for “financial reasons” or to “gain notoriety”.
Detectives from the Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigations Teams this month confirmed they were investigating allegations of sexual offences from 2014.
