The telly favourite hasn’t filmed any new scenes since the claims were made, according to an insider.

A source close to the show said: “This has been the talk of the steamie but it’s been kept in-house until now.

“He wasn’t involved in the filming of the new run of episodes. He last shot scenes before the summer.

“It would be wrong to say he’s been suspended.

“He hasn’t filmed anything since the allegations but this has been his own decision.”

The claims are being dealt with by bosses at the Beeb, who say they will “thoroughly investigate” any allegations.

The insider continued: “There are said to be up to five incidents which have been complained about.

“The police aren’t involved in the harassment claims which are being dealt with internally by the BBC.

“At this stage he’s not been found guilty of anything.”

On the harassment claims, a BBC Scotland spokesperson said: “We can’t comment on any individuals but we take allegations of this nature very seriously and the BBC has robust processes in place to thoroughly investigate them.”
