Veteran Australian entertainer Rolf Harris has been dropped from his U.K. Tv show just days after he was re-arrested on suspicion of committing sex offences.

The 83 year old has been hosting reality Tv series Animal Clinic for Britain's Channel 5 network, but he has now been replaced by another presenter, Ben Fogle, for the second series.

A spokesperson for the Tv channel says, "Ben Fogle will present the next series of Animal Clinic. No other presenter was ever contracted to do the second series."

Tv bosses removed episodes of the show from the broadcast schedule in the aftermath of Harris' previous arrest in March (13) as detectives investigated the star as part of an ongoing sex abuse probe centred around late broadcaster Sir Jimmy Savile, who molested hundreds of victims throughout his showbiz career.

Harris was re-arrested and quizzed by cops again on Monday (05Aug13) and subsequently released on bail.
