Noel Clarke has been axed from London Comic Con amid pressure from fans after sexual misconduct allegations

NOEL Clarke has been dropped by London Comic Con bosses following pressure from fans.

The actor, who is at the centre of a series of serious abuse allegations, was removed from their website yesterday.

Noel, 45, had been on the list of telly stars to be involved in meet and greets – with him charging £20 for a picture.

He was also listed as taking part in a joint photo opportunity with his Bulletproof co-star Ashley Walters, 38, for £40.

In addition to this Noel had been scheduled to speak at the annual event, which is taking place in London this July.

His removal from the event’s line up comes after he was dropped by  the TriForce Creative Network – an organisation created to help promote diversity in the TV and film industry.

­Noel, who has also starred in BBC1’s Doctor Who, vehemently denied any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing.

But in a statement he added: “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.”

The final episode of ITV drama Viewpoint, which saw the married father-of-three Noel play the lead character, was axed on Friday night and placed on ITV Hub for just 48 hours.

Sky also halted its work with Noel, including his crime show Bulletproof.

His co-star on the cop show , Ashley said he was “deeply saddened” by the claims made against Noel but that he could not ignore them.

On Monday Adam Deacon, 38, Noel’s Kiddulthood co-star, alleged he had been witness to and suffered because of the actor’s “horrific abuse of power”.

In a lengthy statement posted on Twitter, Adam added:  “I myself have been a victim of Noel Clarke for 15 years.

“My career was continually sabotaged and the gas lighting became so severe that it led to the complete breakdown of my mental health.”
