Jaime shared the image of the Time's Up movement, which rose to prominence in 2018 as an initiative formed by 300 female actors, executives, writers and directors to 'counter systemic sexual harassment in the entertainment business'. 

Jaime is among several stars who have openly shared their support for Noel's accusers, with the actress Michaela Coel penning a lengthy post after the claims were revealed.

She said: 'I am here to offer great support for the 20 brave women who have come forward; those who have shared their identities with us, but also those who have preferred to use an alias; the mental hurdles a black woman must overcome to do such a thing as reveal their identity within a narrative of rape abuse or bullying at the hands of someone within our community can sometimes be too much.

'Speaking out about these incidents takes a lot of strength because some call them 'grey areas'. They are however far from grey. These behaviours are unprofessional, violent, and can destroy a person's perception of themselves, their place in the world and their career irreparably.

'I have shared to show solidarity, to express my belief in them, and to stand with them in their indignation.' 

On Saturday Christina Chong, who starred opposite Noel on his Sky One series Bulletproof claimed the raft of sexual harassment and bullying allegations against him are the British film industry's 'best kept secret.' 

Sharing the Guardian article to Twitter, she alleged the claims have been the 'UK film industry's best kept secret for years!'

She said: 'If in doubt, trust me, it's true. Why would 20 women put themselves through reliving their traumas to bring down an actor who isn't even a household name? He's a sexual predator #stoppable.' 

Mandeep Dhillon, 30, who appeared as Kamali Khan in the Sky One show, added: 'About f****** time. Don't @ me.'

Chong responded to her Instagram post, saying: 'Took the words right out of my mouth.'

Both actresses later posted identical messages to their social media accounts, reading: 'We stand by the women sexually harassed by Noel Clarke #stoppable #timesup #metoo.'

Earlier, Bulletproof actor Ashley Walters said he was 'deeply saddened' by the allegations made against Clarke in a lengthy statement posted to Twitter.

He added: 'My thoughts are with the women who have come forward and told their awful stories, I am in shock and deeply saddened by what I have heard on a multitude of levels.
