Rocky Horror Show fans are divided over the allegations against Gold Logie winning actor Craig McLachlan and the decision to withdraw him from the popular musical.

"We have spoken to Craig and have mutually agreed that it is not appropriate for him to continue in the current production of the show".

Production firm Gordon Frost Organisation (GFO) has confirmed understudy Adam Rennie will play McLachlan's role as Dr Frank-N-Furter until the Adelaide season wraps on January 13.

McLachlan issued a statement denying all allegations detailed in the media, including touching women's genitals, groping their breasts and exposing his penis. "I saw a very different side come out in him which was terrifying", she told the ABC.

Within an hour, the Facebook post about the cast change had attracted more than 200 comments.

Two actresses raised concerns with the show's senior producers but no action was taken, the reports said.

"And, I sincerely apologise to them for this", he said. "This practice is standard across the ticketing industry and is consistent with the ticketing code of practice".

McLachlan has been accused by three women of sexually assaulting them during a stage performance of the Rocky Horror Show.

McLachlan is now on tour with a new production of Rocky Horror, and said the allegations are "simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety".

"Our company is responsible for sometimes hundreds of people across many productions at any given time, and we do have very strict policies and procedures in place when it comes to reporting of allegations of this nature".

Christie Whelan Browne has claimed Logie victor McLachlan touched her whilst on stage.

Heynatz claimed he straddled her on a couch in the green room of Melbourne's Comedy Theatre, and when she recoiled he said: "Too much?"

Whelan Browne described his alleged behaviour during a sex scene in which they appeared together in a vertical bed and McLachlan, 52, was required to disappear below the sheets.

"It would be distressing to us if anyone within our company was dismissive of sexual assault allegations, and this will form a part of our internal investigation". She also alleges that he would make crude comments about her body and touched her inappropriately.

Production of The Doctor Blake Mysteries has also been put on hold "to allow due process", production company December Media announced Monday, and past episodes of the program have been removed from ABC's streaming platform iview.

The Doctor Blake Mysteries, a show starring McLachlan which ran on the ABC for five seasons and was due to start on Seven this year, is now in a little bit of limbo.
