Former 7Th Heaven star Stephen Collins has lost another job as New York police officials investigate allegations he molested three children.

The story broke early on Tuesday (07Oct14) when published audio tape featuring a man purported to be the actor confessing to his sick actions.

Reports suggest the remarks were made during a therapy session with his estranged wife Faye Grant in 2012. She allegedly taped the conversation without her husband's knowledge.

Shortly after the news broke, movie executives fired Collins from the set of the Ted sequel and now he's lost another big gig - on Tv drama Scandal.

A representative for ABC tells, "We can confirm that we will not be airing any footage with Stephen Collins."

The actor portrayed the character Reed Wallace in a 2012 episode of the series.
