The 27-year-old actress - who plays Nell Fairfax in the soap - has taken to her social networking sites to reveal she was left in tears after a man behaved inappropriately towards her while she was travelling underground in London over the weekend

She said: "To the guy who just sexually harassed me on the tube - I hate you. I hate you SO much but I didn't have the guts to say anything.

"I just took it. Then cried. Like too many women. I'm glad we're getting angry. "

She later added: "Btw, I know this isn't a gender thing and plenty of men have to go through this too. It's just heartbreaking because all down to respecting your fellow humans. All my love is with you guys. I love you so much! (sic)"

It's not yet known whether Scarlett - who has also starred in 'The Royals', 'Call the Midwife', and 'White Island' - is planning to report the alleged incident to the police.

Her claims come just weeks after a number of actors and actresses claimed they'd been sexually assaulted by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

Ed Westwick has also been caught up in the wave of complaints rocking Hollywood at the moment after he was accused of sexual misconduct by two women last week.

Following the accusations, the BBC have decided to drop 'Ordeal by Innocence', in which the actor plays Mickey Argyll, from their festive schedule.

A spokesperson for the BBC said: "These are serious allegations which Ed Westwick has strenuously denied. The BBC is not making any judgement but until these matters are resolved we will not include 'Ordeal by Innocence' in the schedules."

The 30-year-old star has also decided to stop filming for 'White Gold' while he deals with the allegations and works cooperatively with the police during their inquiries.

Ed vehemently denies the allegations against him.
