Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell appeared in court today accused of raping a young girl.
The actor stood in the dock at Manchester Crown Court as the charges were read out to him before the start of his trial.
Mr Le Vell, 48, who plays car mechanic Kevin Webster in the ITV soap, is facing 12 charges in all.
He faces five counts of rape, three of indecent assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.
A slightly different indictment, or list of charges, had been drawn up after a previous hearing, when Mr Le Vell pleaded not guilty to 19 charges.
Before the trial began today the new indictment had to be put to Mr Le Vell.
The actor, who is charged under his real name of Michael Turner, was asked to stand in the dock. He shook his head and repeated "not guilty" in a strong voice to each charge.
The charges span a period of nine years.
ITV has said he will not be appearing in any further episodes of the soap pending the outcome of legal proceedings.
His trial before Judge Michael Henshell is scheduled to last around two weeks.
