Shamed British actor Chris Fountain has been fired from the cast of U.K. soap opera Coronation Street after he was unmasked as the faceless rapper behind a sick new video.

The 25 year old rapped about committing acts of violence and raping women in expletive-filled videos he posted on YouTube.com under his hip-hop alter-ego The Phantom, while wearing a Halloween mask.

Fountain had been suspended from the long-running show, but now Tv bosses have confirmed his contract has been terminated "as a result of the unacceptable comments he made in a number of online clips".

The star had issued a statement to apologise for the videos' content, insisting, "I am deeply ashamed by the lyrics and very much regret my behaviour. The videos were made over a year ago when I was experimenting with music and I've not done anything like it since, nor will I."
