Channel 4 has been slammed over a ‘disrespectful’ Noel Clarke documentary that is set to explore the sexual misconduct and bullying allegations made against him. 

The programme, titled The Cancelling Of Noel Clarke, is apparently ‘in the early stages’ of production. 

Despite not having aired yet, it’s already been branded ‘disgraceful’ by the actor’s former co-star, Adam Deacon.

He reportedly tweeted: “I think it’s absolutely disgusting that @Channel4 are making a documentary on Noel Clarke and giving him the chance to play the victim.

“It’s truly disrespectful to all the women that were brave enough to come forward. Over 20 women, and myself, are not lying.”

Deacon then retweeted a message that read: “I’m absolutely shocked that @Channel4 are giving Noel Clarke a platform to defend himself against his appalling behaviour that he himself admitted?”

‘Viewpoint’ Final Episode Cancelled In Wake Of Noel Clarke Allegations

A Channel 4 spokesperson told the Metro:Channel 4 has not commissioned the documentary.

“It is in the early stages of development and as part of this process, the production company has started approaching a number of potential participants.” 

Although the documentary will be exploring the allegations against Clarke, it’s believed that he will not receive any fee and won’t benefit financially from it.

When the allegations against the actor came first out, the fourth season of Bulletproof was immediately cancelled.

Clarke then released a statement in which he claimed he would be ‘seeking professional help’ to ‘educate’ himself.

However, he reportedly denied all but one of the allegations through his lawyer and supposedly admitted to making ‘inappropriate comments about one woman’.
