In a Twitter post, Alexandrou, who starred on the BBC soap as Martin Fowler until 2007 and has since been working as a producer, suggested that he knows people who had been "hurt" by Clarke's behaviour.

"Noel Clarke Had too many of scared us for too long," he wrote. "I genuinely feel ashamed I didn't do more to stand up for friends of mine he hurt."

He added: "Innocent until proven guilty, but this was long overdue."
