Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes returns to face child sex allegations

Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes has arrived to Australia to face multiple child sex offence allegations dating back to the 1980s.

Hughes consented to an order sought by Australia's attorney-general that he return to Sydney for questioning in relation to claims made by five people.

A warrant outlines 11 accusations dating between 1984 and 1990, which coincides with the actor's starring role in the hit family sitcom Hey Dad!.

Hughes has not been charged and has been on bail since his arrest in London in August.

His lawyer Greg Walsh tells Stuart Bocking, Hughes emphatically denies all the allegations and will vigorously defend them.
