Noel Clarke uses microphone as lewd prop in unearthed video & says: 'Don't try that at work, you'll be fired or jailed'

A "CREEPY" video showing Noel Clarke using a microphone as a lewd prop has been unearthed after 20 women made allegations against him.

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

The allegations, which have been fiercely denied by the married director, relate to a period between 2004 and 2019, the Guardian reports.

Video from 2019 has now emerged of Clarke using a microphone as a lewd prop during a Doctor Who Q&A.

The actor can be seen hitting co-stars Annette Badland and Camille Coduri with the microphone on their legs and resting it on the former's shoulders.

He had been making a joke about John Barrowman exposing himself on set, which he since apologised for.

Clarke then says: "For the record, any men out there, do not try that at work. You will be fired and possibly go to jail."

Horrified viewers said they were left "squirming" by the "creepy" video.

Sky have now confirmed they have "halted" work with the actor following the claims.

Clarke starred in Sky's crime drama Bulletproof, which had a fourth series commissioned in January.

The broadcaster said: "Effective immediately, we have halted Noel Clarke's involvement in any future Sky productions."

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.

It comes after Bafta stripped his award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema, which he only received on April 10.

He had been made aware of the allegations before he appeared onstage at the Royal Albert Hall to collect the award.

The Guardian also reported Bafta had also been alerted 13 days before the ceremony – but said it was provided with "no evidence" that would allow it to investigate.

But the committee said today it "did not know about any allegations relating to Noel Clarke prior to the announcement of the OBCC award on 29 March".

The actor is currently appearing in ITV’s new drama series Viewpoint.

Numerous women are reported to have broken their silence after the ceremony.

They allege Mr Clarke is a serial abuser and uses his power to prey on and harass female colleagues.

Mr Clarke said in a statement to the publication: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.

"If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.

"I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

Through his lawyers, Clarke categorically denied every allegation that the publication put to him.

He allegedly accepts he once made inappropriate comments about one woman, for which he later apologised.

In a 29-page letter, his lawyers said he denies all of the other allegations.
