Viewpoint will not air on ITV tonight (April 30) in light of the Noel Clarke allegations.
News broke ahead of the show last night that saw Clarke accused of sexual harassment.
It’s said that 20 women have come forward with allegations of verbal abuse, bullying and groping.
The actor denies all claims.
Will Viewpoint be on tonight?
ITV has announced that it will not air tonight’s series finale of Viewpoint.
In a statement released this afternoon, it said: “ITV has a zero tolerance policy to bullying, harassment and victimisation and robust procedures in place to investigate and deal with any complaints.
“We strongly believe that everyone deserves to work in a supportive and safe environment.
“In light of the very serious nature of the allegations against Noel Clarke raised by 20 women in the Guardian’s report, ITV has decided it is no longer appropriate to broadcast the final episode of the drama Viewpoint on ITV main channel this evening.
ITV has decided it is no longer appropriate to broadcast the final episode of the drama Viewpoint on ITV main channel this evening.
“We are mindful that some of our viewers have already invested four hours of their time over the past four nights in following this thriller which was due to conclude this evening, and they have yet to see the final episode.
“As such we plan to make it available on ITV Hub tonight for a limited time for any viewers who wish to seek it out, and watch its conclusion.”
What have viewers said about the scandal?
Ahead of the statement, even the most die-hard Viewpoint fans were urging ITV to pull the plug.
Many said they wouldn’t be tuning in tonight even if the decision was made to air the show.
“In view of allegations about #NoelClarke will be giving last episode of #Viewpoint a miss tonight,” said one.
“I was interested to see the conclusion to be honest but I’ll live.”
Another said: “Having watched it all so far and this being the finale episode, even if it was showing I had already decided I would not watch and add to the viewing figures.
“I don’t care enough and just feel for the rest of the cast who worked on it, to be honest.”
A third said: “Can’t watch #Viewpoint any more. Damn you #noelclark.”
‘At least put it on the Hub’
However, others do want to see the series finale.
“If ITV scrap the final episode of #Viewpoint tonight, that’s ridiculous.
“Noel Clarke isn’t the only actor in the show. Why should the rest of the cast suffer because of one cast member’s allegations?
“Air it and let the viewers decide if they want to watch it or not!” one demanded.
” At least put it on the Hub so we know what happens its our choice to watch it,” said another.
