The Lord of the Rings star went to Holborn police station at midday to address claims he sent abusive texts and calls to ­Georgina Sutcliffe, who he split from in 2010, reports The Mirror.

Officials took Bean's fingerprints and DNA, and he was later bailed as officials continue their investigation into the case.

A source told the publication: "Georgina's a smashing girl and she just wants to get on with her life and move on after the divorce.

"There's been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats but police take harassment ­allegations seriously."

A Scotland Yard spokesman added: "I can confirm a man was arrested on suspicion of harassment yesterday and bailed until a later date."

Sean married Georgina, his fourth wife, in 2008. Cracks began to show within months of the nuptials when the star was arrested over allegations an argument between the pair turned violent.

Georgina opened up about relationship after the split, telling the Daily Mail: "We're getting divorced on the grounds of his unreasonable behaviour. We just couldn't live together any more. He became unbearable. Life was absolutely intolerable."
