The singer was fired once it was discovered that he had become a porn star going under the name Ryan Ryder.

Taggart actor McCredie will play the role of Dandini, the character originally played by James Mackenzie, who has since replaced Chalmers in the Prince Charming role.

McCredie explained that he was at first unaware of the reasons behind Chalmers's exit.

"I'm the super-sub they've got in from off the bench," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"It's strange actually, I'm currently appearing in I, Tommy, which is about Tommy Sheridan and the alleged sex scandal surrounding him, so it's a bit odd to be getting called in to do this because of another one.

"I had no idea why Craig Chalmers left when I accepted the job. It does lend a whole other meaning to the phrase, 'He's behind you'.

"The only dodgy videos I've ever been in were a couple of episodes of Take the High Road."

Craig Chalmers recently explained that his porn career began in a "crossover" period after he had initially found several roles in theatre and musicals.
