A WOMAN who worked alongside Noel Clarke during an event at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) five years ago, has alleged the television and film star sexually harassed her and touched her inappropriately.

According to the Guardian, several sources have alleged they were sexually harassed or inappropriately touched by Noel Clarke on the BBC show Doctor Who, when the actor played the vehicle technician Mickey Smith from 2005 to 2010.

And these latest allegations come a week after ITV, Sky and the BBC all cut ties with Mr Clarke after the newspaper also published testimony from 20 women who variously accused him of groping, sexual harassment and bullying.

Mr Clarke, aged 45, vehemently denies any allegations of sexual misconduct, criminal wrongdoing or sexually inappropriate behaviour.

According to the report, in May 2016 a woman had volunteered at the Bournemouth Film and Comic Con event, held at the BIC.

She was helping Mr Clarke sign autographs and take photographs with paying fans.

In the report this woman alleged that Mr Clarke sexually harassed her and touched her inappropriately under the table they were both sitting at.

Clarke’s lawyers said he never touched anyone inappropriately or in a sexual way.

They also said Mr Clarke had no specific recollections of discussions with the woman at the BIC event, but denied he would have conducted himself in the way she alleged.

In the statement released the day after the newspaper published allegations from the 20 women, Mr Clarke said: “I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing.

“Recent reports however have made it clear to me that some of my actions have affected people in ways I did not intend or realise.

“To those individuals, I am deeply sorry.

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

Mr Clarke is an actor, screenwriter, director and comic book writer.

He played Sam in the film trilogy, Kidulthood, Adulthood and Brotherhood, which he also wrote and directed.

Bafta has since suspended Mr Clarke’s membership, just weeks after giving him an award for outstanding contribution.
