Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein could be stripped of his CBE, according to the BBC.

They report that the government’s Honours Forfeiture Committee are “actively” considering removing the honour from Weinstein, who has faced multiple allegations of sexual assault and rape.

Weinstein has “unequivocally” denied all claims of non-consensual sex.

Weinstein was awarded the honoury CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 2004 for outstanding contribution to the British film industry.

He has already been suspended by Bafta.
