Actor Charlie Sheen is expected to return to the set of Two and a Half Men on Tuesday, according to his publicist.

The actor, who entered rehab on 23 February, is in the process of leaving the facility, trade newspaper Hollywood Reporter has reported.

Sheen is scheduled to appear in court on Monday on domestic abuse charges stemming from his Christmas Day arrest.

The 44-year-old was arrested following a fight with his wife, Brooke Mueller, at their home in Aspen, Colorado.

He was later charged with menacing, misdemeanour assault and criminal mischief against his wife.

The hit comedy will have been shut down for three weeks if Sheen returns to the studio next week.

The creator of Two and a Half Men and the CBS network have previously expressed support to the star.

They said in a statement: "We wish him nothing but the best as he deals with this personal matter."
