Kevin Spacey has been accused of sexual harassment by 20 people during his time at The Old Vic.

The theatre, one of Britain’s major theatrical institutions, originally said no complaints had been made against the actor when allegations first came to light last month.

But bosses today admitted the complaints had been made about the Hollywood star to a hotline set up by the theatre in the wake of the scandal.

Spacey was artistic director at the theatre for 11 years from 2004.

A statement from The Old Vic said: ‘The investigation resulted in 20 personal testimonies shared of alleged inappropriate behaviour carried out by Kevin Spacey during his time as Artistic Director.

‘Despite having the appropriate escalation processes in place, it was claimed that those affected felt unable to raise concerns and that Kevin Spacey operated without sufficient accountability. This is clearly unacceptable and The Old Vic truly apologises for not creating an environment or culture where people felt able to speak freely.
