British actress Noel Clarke has been photographed for the first time since revealing that she considered suicide after more than 20 women accused her of sexual misconduct – and with police facing scratches for dismissing the idea of a criminal investigation.
Social media users have criticized the Metropolitan Police for not following up on the allegations, questioning the reasons for the decision and expressing support for women appearing to report sexual violence.
Mr Clarke was spotted outside a London restaurant yesterday looking calm and dressed in casual attire with attractive red coaches.
He was spotted leaving the Launceston Place restaurant in Kensington, after meeting friends for lunch.
It was the first time she had seen him since she told The Mail On Sunday she had considered suicide, saying: ‘I needed to do something inevitable.’
In 2021 allegations surfaced from more than 20 women, all of whom knew the 46-year-old actress in a professional role and reported incidents while working with her on TV and film projects.
The allegations, which lasted for 15 years, included allegations of unwanted touching or touching, sexual misconduct and comments on the set, secret photographs of nude audits and the sharing of nude photos without consent.

Bw. Clarke was walking out of a restaurant in Kensington when he appeared – reportedly after attending lunch with friends.
But in March this year the Metropolitan Police confirmed they would not open an investigation against Mr Clarke as the information was not a threshold for a criminal investigation.
In a statement at the time Clarke said he ‘strongly’ denied ‘any sexual offenses or criminal offenses’.
He added that he was “deeply saddened” by some of his actions affecting people ‘in ways that I did not intend or recognize’, and vowed to get professional help ‘to educate themselves and change for the better’.
He is now suing The Guardian, a newspaper that reported the allegations, as well as Bafta’s defamation.
Kando is suing the publisher of the newspaper Conde Nast, who ran a piece about controversy in his gly monthly men’s GQ.
Mr Clarke spoke openly about how the allegations affected his mental health and The Mail On Sunday, revealing that he once considered cutting his throat as his mental health continued to deteriorate.
He said it was his 11-year-old son who ‘grabbed’ him by asking him a question – about why he was carrying a knife in his pocket.
The British actress was photographed in jeans and a t-shirt, along with attractive, red-haired trainers. It is the first time since his cover-up that he was plagued by suicidal thoughts after allegations against him were made.
Over the past year, Clarke and his wife, Iris, who have been together for two decades, have given birth to a new baby who has not dared to tell anyone about him.
Mr Clarke now has four children – before the new baby, his youngest son was born in 2015.
Financially the relative has been left ‘fleeing the smoke’. More seriously, at the very least, Clarke committed suicide.
He pocketed a folding hunting knife bought as a souvenir while filming Auf Wiedersehen, Pet in Arizona 20 years ago and planned to cut his throat.
“I needed to do something inevitable,” he said. ‘I was looking for a book and a knife fell out of my pocket. My 11-year-old son said, ‘Daddy, why did you get that?’
‘I said,’ It’s just removing dirt from my nails… ‘And he said,’ Oh, all right, ‘and somehow the norm of that thing got me out of it.
‘Until then, I was waiting for the right moment to commit suicide. I was out of here. Completed. I didn’t care for anything. My mind was ruined. ‘
‘Twenty years of work ended in 24 hours. I lost everything,’ ‘he told the newspaper, adding that his profession had been cut short by the allegations.
‘The company I created from the beginning, my television shows, my films, my book deals, the prestige of the industry I had.
‘My heart and my head have ruined me in a way that I cannot explain.’
She spends her days at home caring for her new baby, on the phone while her older children play football, go to church on Sunday and attend treatment.
He has been so traumatized that he has not been able to watch TV for a year because he only sees people who have turned their backs on him, he said.
Following the allegations against Clarke, ITV drew the final episode of the Viewpoint drama, in which he acted, and Sky presenter, who had aired on Clarke Bulletproof, said it was suspending him.
Bafta also suspended his organization membership and his outstanding British contribution to the cinema award, which he had been awarded in 2021.
Mr Clarke acknowledged that not all of his past behaviors have been blamed, especially when events almost two decades ago are judged by today’s standards.
He told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I am not a hunter. I have crossed the road to avoid walking behind women since I was 15. ‘
Bw. Clarke revealed that he committed suicide sometime after the allegations surfaced – he pulled out because one of his children asked him why he had a knife in his pocket.
The actress’ career led to her being nominated as the best foreign actress for her appearance in Doctor Who in 2006 – but she says she has been fired and her work ‘ruined’ by the allegations.
Launceston’s place in Kensington, London, is best known for its dining experience. Noel Clarke was seen eating dinner with friends yesterday, June 16, and has largely kept himself out of the limelight since allegations of sexual misconduct were exposed.
He continued: ‘I’ve been a normal dude, of course, I’m flirting. Have I ever commented positively? One hundred percent. But not to the extent that it confirmed the ruin of my life.
‘I can’t say I never talked about sex at work. We are adults in the workplace and people make jokes and have conversations between them that cross borders.
‘Sometimes you are together for six, seven months, away from home. I think sometimes these are just ordinary conversations, or a little inappropriate that people have.
‘I have never been involved in any negotiations that I did not believe were mutually exclusive, they were not repeated. Maybe I would have known better. But you know what, I didn’t know much better. ‘
Mr Clarke stayed off his Twitter account for 13 months after he was first charged with sexual misconduct – he reappeared on May 28 to publish an article in The Mail On Sunday.
The actor is best known for starring in the film Doctor Who and co-producing The Hood Trilogy.
He has also played prominent roles in Brotherhood, Journey of the Stars in Darkness and Dumb.
He was awarded the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award in 2009 and was awarded the 2003 Laurence Olivier Theater Award for the Most Promising Guest of 2002 for his performance in Where We Live at the Royal Court Theater.
He criticized the influence of social media in ‘canceling’ and destroying his career: “When did broadcasters in this country become judges, judges and murderers?
“When did Bafta decide that they were no longer responsible for the film, but that they were judging people’s lives? This does not apply to me, it is more serious, it is about the expected process.
‘Yes, people have said these things about me – but when I say you are a donkey, it does not make you a donkey, does it?’
