Los Angeles: Actress Vivica A Fox is the latest celebrity to come out in support of comedian Bill Cosby.

The 50-year-old actress appeared on 'The Meredith Viera Show' where she recounted her experience working with the 77-year-old comedian, who has been accused of sexual assault by some 20 women, insisting to the talk show host that Cosby is "nothing like the man they are describing", reported E! online.

Her remarks comes just one day after the actor returned to the stage in Kitchener, Ontario - his first live performance since November ? and two days after Phylicia Rashad, who played Cosby's on-screen wife for the series' eight-year run, also defended her former co-star.

Fox praised Keshia Knight Pulliam for the way she handled the questions about Cosby's scandal.

"I worked on the Cosby show and was honoured to do the show, and I have to agree with Keshia the man that I met was nothing like the man they are describing," she said.
