The line-up of women making allegations against legendary TV star Bill Cosby continues to grow, with three more woman accusing the actor of sex assaults yesterday.

Hollywood lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference to say she has ‘lost count’ of the number of alleged victims who have now come forward.

Among them is supermodel Janice Dickinson, who originally claimed during a 2013 interview on that she was raped by Cosby in the 80s.

Yesterday former model Beth Ferrier joined the chorus of allegations. She said: “He drugged me and sexually assaulted me. I want Mr Cosby to face justice for what he has done.”

She was joined by a second woman, who was not named, who claimed she was raped during the 80s, and a third woman, Helen Hayes, who said the actor grabbed her breast in 1973.

Cosby, who has denied the allegations through his lawyer, meanwhile sent a tweet thanking his showbiz backers, singer Jill Scott and actress Whoopi Goldberg.

He said: “Thank you @MissJillScott, from the Cosby Family,” before later adding, “Thank you @WhoopiGoldberg.”
