Award winning actor Noel Clarke has been suspended by Bafta after allegations of sexual harassment.

The claims come a week after Clarke, 45, received one of its top honours for “outstanding contribution to cinema”.


Clarke has said he “vehemently denies any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing”.

In a statement the actor said:

“I will defend myself against these false allegations.

“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.”

It’s reported 20 women have made allegations against Clarke.

Bafta said it was suspending his membership and the recently awarded honour “immediately and until further notice”.

Clarke is a currently starring in the ITV crime drama Viewpoint – a five part series.

He is also a producer of the programme.

Management and production company 42M&P said it no longer represented the actor.
