In the statement, Gervais added,

“I am shocked and appalled to learn of the historical allegations made by a number of women against Charlie Hanson. The decision was made to immediately remove him from production and referred the matter to the police.I have worked with and supported hundreds of men and women during my working life and will do what is necessary to protect and/or restore my reputation. I will also cooperate with any formal inquiries. The matter is now in the hands of my solicitors.”

Thesun reports, In the 5,000-word email, the woman alleged: “Charlie Hanson is a predator who uses his reputation, connections and standing in order to groom far younger, impressionable and sometimes vulnerable women into trusting him.”, she added, “At times he will promise them a starry career under his wing, and then exploits that trust in creepy and illegal ways.”

As per, Hanson said in a statement via his lawyer: The accusations made against him are anonymous and are demonstrably false, concerning improper conduct towards women dating back many years.

BAFTA also stated that “Bafta is an arts charity and does not have the power to investigate historical claims of abuse; therefore, we have referred the matter to the police.

“The behavior that these accounts allege is abhorrent, in complete opposition to Bafta values, and has no place in our industry.”

Charlie Hanson also stated that he would fully cooperate with any kind of formal investigation.
