Last July, the crowd outside the U.K. court cheered as a tearful Kevin Spacey thanked them for their support after he was acquitted of sexual assault on four men. This followed on from a New York court case in October 2022 when a jury concluded that he had not molested fellow actor Anthony Rapp, then 14, back in the 1980s.

New two part documentary "Spacey Unmasked" claims to feature "never-seen-before interviews" and will feature testimony from a number of men who say they encountered the actor, from his time at high school to his tenure as artistic director of London's Old Vic theatre.

Spacey has hit back in dramatic fashion. The 64 year old took to X (formerly Twitter) to state that he had only been given seven days to respond to allegations "dating back 48 years" and that he had not been provided with "sufficient details to investigate these matters."

Described as a "witch hunt" by some, Spacey promises a full response after the broadcast of the programme. So watch the show and then watch this space. In the meantime, read on for where to watch "Spacey Unmasked" online and from anywhere.

Spacey's response on X to 'Spacey Unmasked'

Update: Spacey has responded in full to the Channel 4 documentary via an extend YouTube interview. Prior to broadcast, he issued the following statement via Twitter:

Spacey's May 2 statement in full:

"Over the last week, I have repeatedly requested that Channel 4 afford me more than 7 days to respond to allegations made against me dating back 48 years and provide me with sufficient details to investigate these matters. Channel 4 has refused on the basis that they feel that asking for a response in 7 days to new, anonymized and non-specific allegations is a “fair opportunity” for me to refute any allegations made against me. 

"I will not sit back and be attacked by a dying network's one-sided “documentary” about me in their desperate attempt for ratings. There's a proper channel to handle allegations against me and it’s not Channel 4.

"Each time I have been given the time and a proper forum to defend myself, the allegations have failed under scrutiny and I have been exonerated. Tune in this weekend to see my response on X [formerly Twitter]  

"Channel 4 and Roast Beef TV may find themselves “speechless”, but I no longer will be."
