A teenage soap star appeared in court today (February 7) to deny raping and molesting a 14-year-old boy.

The actor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been accused of a three-month campaign of sexual abuse which allegedly took place when the pair attended the same theatre school.

He has been charged with orally raping the boy at a south London theatre in July 2010.

The Daily Mail reports that he has also been accused of fondling his alleged victim in changing rooms at stage school and in public toilets.

Appearing at Blackfriars Crown Court this morning, the actor - now 17 - pleaded not guilty to four charges he is facing.

A two-week trial has now been confirmed to begin on Monday, March 18.
