ACTOR Sean Bean has been arrested on suspicion of sending his ex-wife abusive texts and calls.

The TV hardman, who made his name in the Napoleonic war drama Sharpe, was arrested over allegations that he sent abusive texts and calls to actress Georgina Sutcliffe, according to the Daily Mirror.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "A 53-year-old man attended a central London police station by appointment... where he was arrested and bailed pending further inquiries. He was arrested on suspicion of harassment."

A source told the paper: “There’s been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats but police take harassment ­allegations seriously.”

Sutcliffe is appearing in the West End production of Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap.

The pair divorced in December 2010 after two years of marriage.

Bean who has now made his name in Game of Thrones wed his teenage sweetheart, Debra James, at 21.

He is also divorced from Bread actress Melanie Hill and Sharpe co-star Abigail Cruttenden.
