Ed Westwick has furiously denied he raped a second woman, actress Aurélie Wynn.

Earlier today, in a Facebook post, she claimed he had pushed her "face down" and ripped her bathing suit during an incident in 2014.

However, the Gossip Girl actor has now fired back in an Instagram post, labelling the allegations 'vile' and 'horrific'.

He said: "It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct. I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.

The 30-year-old was accused of raping actress Kristina Cohen in a lengthy social media post on Tuesday evening.

She wrote: "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, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*ck me. I was paralysed, terrified. I couldn't speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me."

She alleges that her boyfriend claimed that she was an "active participant", and "blamed" her. She also alleged that he told her to keep quiet about the said incident or her career would be over.

She continued: "There's no way I can go around saying Ed 'raped' me and I don't want to be 'that girl'.

"I hope that my stories and the stories of others help to reset and realign the toxic environments and power imbalances that have created these monsters."

Here is the post in full...

Ed has now denied all allegations made against him. Kristina's boyfriend has not commented on the alleged incident.
