Noel Clarke left an actress close to tears after shouting at her to urinate on his friend in a cruel prank.
The Kidulthood actor ordered Jahannah James to "get her f*nny out" and "pee" on his friend Jason Maza, who was pretending to be suffering an allergic reaction to citrus fruit.
The news comes after the actor was accused of sexual misconduct and bullying by 20 women, which he "vehemently denies".
In a clip to promote 2016 HelloU movie BrOTHERHOOD, a film directed by and starring Clarke, Jahannah was sent to interview her co-stars – but they’d been told ahead of time that she was thinking of pranking them.
To get one up on her, Noel warned the camera: "This is my film. I created this, you can’t prank me."
After providing Jason with an orange-flavoured cocktail, Jahannah was left close to tears as Jason fell to the floor under the pretence of suffering a severe allergic reaction.
"Is there orange in that drink?" Clarke asks the BrOTHERHOOD actress. "He’s allergic to orange, man, you know that."
And things take a nastier turn as he raves: "You’ve known us for f***ing years, you know he was."
A frightened Jahannah insisted that she thought it was a nut allergy.
Clarke pretended to call an ambulance and chatted on the phone to so-called medical professionals, telling them: "His throat is closing."
Jahannah put her hands over her mouth and began crying, repeating: "He can’t breathe, he can’t breathe."
"I didn’t mean to do it!" Jahannah begged.
Noel shouts back at her: "How is that going to help?” before speaking back into the phone: “I’m not shouting at you but this girl’s being an idiot."
Apparently told he needs access to ammonia, Clarke eventually relays instructions from the ‘caller’, telling Jahannah: “You need to pee on him."
"Oh my god, Jay, I’m really sorry," a frantic Jahannah says.
She goes on to ask the other people in the room to turn around, before saying desperately: "I can’t."
"Just take your f*nny out and pee on him, what’s wrong with you?" Clarke shoots back, and advises her to put her leg up on a nearby chair.
Jahannah asks Clarke why he can’t wee on his friend, and he says firmly: "I’m not peeing on him."
At this point, Jason looks up at her and starts laughing – indicating that it was all a farce.
"You can’t prank me!" Clarke tells the frazzled actress. He later hugs her and congratulates her on a job well done in the interview.
Clarke apologised on Friday in response to the sexual misconduct allegations, admitting he is "deeply sorry" and "seeking professional help" while he "vehemently denies any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing".

He has been suspended by BAFTA and had his recent ITV drama Viewpoint pulled from Friday night schedules in response to the claims from 20 women.
Meanwhile, his co-stars have also responded to the accusations, which reportedly occurred between 2004 and 2019, including his fellow Kidulthood actor Jaime Winstone.

The campaign was initially created by 300 female Hollywood actors, writers, directors and executives to "counter systemic sexual harassment in the entertainment business."
