Viewpoint actor Noel Clarke, 45, recently found himself at the centre of a media scandal after 20 women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct. Now, footage has emerged of Noel using a microphone as a prop for a joke, pretending it is a penis.
Every five seconds just hitting hit on everything
In the resurfaced video which has recently found its way onto social media, Noel is joined on stage by his former Doctor Who co-stars including Annette Badland and Camille Coduri.
During the on-stage discussion, the London born actor claims that while filming the popular BBC series, his co-star John Barrowman, 54, repeatedly “took his d**k out” around the cast.
The footage, which is believed to have been filmed in 2015, sees Clarke use a microphone as a lewd prop, suggesting that it is Barrowman’s penis.
He said: “Barrowman’s there taking his d**k out every five seconds,” to which Annette, 70, says: “yes, he touched,” before she was interrupted.
Clarke went on to say while demonstrating with a microphone: “Every five seconds just hitting hit on everything like,” before using the microphone to hit his legs and Camille on her arm.
He said: “You can’t help but laugh, but like, Chris will be there like, ‘Shush, I’m serious, concentrating on my acting,'” before going on to hit his thighs again before hitting Annette on her arm, while the crowd laughed.
“John Barrowman,” he added.
Before Annette went on to say: “We had a scene where he was using a piece of the set as a skateboard, remember, and he kind of had to stand on that,” before Noel interjected, adding: “Using it as a drum kit”.
Speaking of John Barrowman, Noel said: “The guy is all the time laughing, smiling and taking it out, all the time,” before turning to Camille and saying: “Do you remember the time he put it on your shoulder in the makeup room,” before Camille responded: “Yes, I do.”
Noel then proceeded to stand behind the Wandsworth born actress with the microphone resting on her shoulder, while she exclaimed: “I didn’t want to say, I was being really polite yesterday, but hey.”
“John Barrowman ladies and gentleman, for the record, any men out there, do not try that at work, you will be fired and possibly go to jail,” said Noel.
After being asked how Barrowman was allowed to carry out these actions, he responded: “I think it’s because he’s adorable and very light-hearted and stuff but because he’s a gay man too.
“Am I lying? I feel like it’s non-threatening, you know what I mean? All these straight guys like ‘Damn it’, like you can’t do that at work, you’re going to jail, but John Barrowman is like ‘Hey Camille, hey’,” before he waved his microphone close to Camille’s face while gyrating his hips.
Express.co.uk has contacted representatives for Noel and John for comment.
Mr Barrowman has previously been accused of exposing himself in 2008 during an interview with Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac for BBC Radio 1.
At the time, he was goaded into undoing his trousers by the broadcasters but later issued an apology after the corporation received one complaint.
He told The Guardian: “I apologise for any offence I have caused. I was joining in the light-hearted and fun banter of the show and went too far. I was wrong to do this and it will never happen again.
“I really appreciate the great support I have received from the BBC over the last few years and would never intentionally do anything to undermine the integrity of the corporation.”
Noel Clarke vehemently denies all allegations made against him, telling the PA News Agency: “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.”
