Chris Colfer has denied that he is leaving the cast of Glee following what his management claims is a Twitter hoax.

A tweet sent yesterday (July 3) from the actor's verified Twitter account claimed that he had been “let go” from the hit FOX show.

“Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly,” it read.

But Colfer's manager subsequently told The Hollywood Reporter that the star's account had been hacked, and confirmed that he will be back as Kurt Hummel for the sixth and final season of Glee.

A spokesperson for the show's production company 20th Century Fox Television added: “We've been alerted that Chris Colfer's Twitter account has been hacked. Rumours of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth.

“We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”

Colfer later tweeted - this time for real: 'Apparently I missed quite the INTERESTING day while aboard my flight. I'm just glad I wasn't "killed by a fruit truck" again.'
