Noel Clarke says he's 'deeply sorry' and 'seeking professional help' but denies sex harassment claims

NOEL Clarke says he is "deeply sorry" and is "seeking professional help" after a series of sex harrassment claims were made against him.

The actor said today he vows to educate himself and "change for the better" – but has "vehemently" denied the allegations of sexual misconduct.

Despite his apology, Noel Clark strongly denies any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing claims brought against him.

Clarke said recent allegations of misconduct have “made it clear to me that some of my actions have affected people in ways I did not intend or realise."

He added: “To those individuals, I am deeply sorry.

"I will be seeking professional help to educate myself and change for the better.”

However, in the statement, he added: "I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing."

This comes after ITV cancelled the final episode of Viewpoint after Noel Clarke's sexual misconduct accusations.

The Kidulthood actor has been accused of a range of acts – including sharing sexually explicit pictures and videos without consent.

CLARK DENIES HARASSMENT CLAIMS

An ITV spokesperson said: "ITV has a zero tolerance policy to bullying, harassment and victimisation and robust procedures in place to investigate and deal with any complaints. We strongly believe that everyone deserves to work in a supportive and safe environment.

"In light of the very serious nature of the allegations against Noel Clarke raised by 20 women in the Guardian’s report, ITV has decided it is no longer appropriate to broadcast the final episode of the drama Viewpoint on ITV main channel this evening.

"We are mindful that some of our viewers have already invested four hours of their time over the past four nights in following this thriller which was due to conclude this evening, and they have yet to see the final episode.

"As such we plan to make it available on ITV Hub tonight for a limited time for any viewers who wish to seek it out, and watch its conclusion."

It comes as:

  • ITV CANCELS Viewpoint’s final episode after Noel Clarke sexual misconduct accusations
  • Noel Clarke liked a tweet about 'learning from your mistakes' days before the allegations came to light
  • Sky halted Bulletproof filming after the star was accused of sexual misconduct
  • Noel Clarke's Kidulthood co-star Jaime Winstone told him 'time's up' as Michaela Coel backed accusers

Among the 20 women who have made allegations are Brotherhood producer Gina Powell.

She alleged he told her he planned to "f**k and fire her" before changing his mind and keeping her on board.

The producer, who worked with Clarke for three years between 2014 and 2017, also claimed the actor bragged about having secret films of naked auditions.

She alleged he once showed her a covert recording of a naked audition by Jahannah James, who starred in Brotherhood.
