Australian comedian Tom Ballard has denied indecently assaulting an aspiring comedian.
The accusation was made on Facebook on Saturday by a man who claims the incident occurred in a hotel room back in 2014.
The ABC host has since denied the allegation.
"I have become aware of a claim being made about me," Ballard wrote on his website. "It involves an allegation of sexual assault: an allegation that I completely deny in the strongest terms possible. It fundamentally goes against who I am as a person and everything I believe in."
"Four years ago I had a consensual sexual experience with someone. I had absolutely no idea he believed it wasn’t consensual until six months ago. His version of that experience as described on social media is simply not what happened."
"It has affected my work and my mental health," he added. "I abhor sexual assault and sexual violence. I absolutely support the philosophy of the #MeToo movement. I believe in supporting victims and ensuring those who have done wrong face justice.
"But I have not done anything wrong."
