Warning: The following article contains allegations of sexual misconduct that some readers may find upsetting.
star Ed Westwick has denied a rape allegation from actress Kristina Cohen.
Responding to the allegation on Instagram, Ed wrote: "I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape."
Kristina had alleged in a Facebook post on November 6 that Ed forced himself on her when she visited his house three years ago.
"I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep, I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me... I fought him off as hard as I could," she alleged.
"I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn't speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me. It was a nightmare, and the days following weren't any better."
Ed is set to star in the BBC's big Agatha Christie Christmas special, Ordeal By Innocence, next month.
