"As are the incredible, beautiful crew from my latest project. These t-shirts were the most welcomed wrap gifts I’ve ever had the honour to give."

Clarke went on: "My heart is breaking along with so many others over the continued suffering, pain and heartbreak millions are living through in Ukraine.

"As the news comes in everyday it can feel overwhelming, not knowing how any one individual can make any difference to this shocking reality, but, here are a few ways to show your support and send some love."

The star, 35, then added several ways that people could offer help.

"If you want to join us and donate much needed funds, donate to @disastersemergencycommittee," she wrote.

"By doing so you'll help provide food, water, shelter and healthcare to refugees and displaced families.

Clarke continued: "The beautifully made (and insanely soft and comfy) t-shirts that Ted, the crew and I are wearing are by the ever magnificent and loving @charliemackesy.
