Alongside the clip, Nicola wrote: “Having a coffee at Hyde park with two of the girls and this guy asks to sit with us.

“We say no. Minutes later he puts his penis on his table and flashes us. Just another day of being a woman. I’ve censored his privates…but if anyone recognises him DM me.

“I followed him but he got lost in a crowd outside Winter Wonderland. There were plenty of kids around. The psychology behind this baffles me – as does its prevalence in society. It wasn’t the first time it had happened to one of us.

“At 17:08 to be precise. On the picnic benches outside The Lodge Cafe, Hyde Park Corner.”

The actress went on to add that she had reported the incident to the local police.

She added: “It’s all been reported to the police, but I know that the Twitter-sphere can often help identify these types of criminals.”
