Ed Westwick Officially Replaced On New TV Show After Rape Allegations

BBC One have announced actor Christian Cooke as his replacement.

Ed Westwick has officially been replaced in the new British TV show he was filming after multiple rape allegations

Ed was set to star in a new TV show called Ordeal By Innocence but after multiple rape allegations, in a press release by BBC One, they’ve announced they are replacing him with Christian Cooke.

The 30-year-old British actor has also been in The Art of MoreWitches of East EndWhere the Heart Is.

 Kristina Cohen and Aurelie Wynn both come forward in Early November claiming Ed had raped them but the actor denied all allegations.

Kristina, in a Facebook post, said that three years ago she “was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body.

“I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me,” she alleged.

“I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.”

And Aurelie also used Facebook to make her allegation against Ed.

She said in 2014, the 30-year-old “pushed me face down and [I] was powerless under his weight. I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped, I was in complete shock.”

Ed took to Twitter to address the allegations. “It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims,”

“there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct,” the actor wrote.
