On Tuesday, a spokesman for Sir Michael confirmed that he was once rebuked by a journalist, Julia Hartley-Brewer, for putting his hand on her knee during a dinner in 2002.
Just hours after Michael Fallon quit saying his behaviour in the past fell "below the high standards we require of the armed forces", May appointed Williamson, a rising star in her ruling Conservative Party.
He told the BBC that what had been "acceptable 15, 10 years ago is clearly not acceptable now".
In a statement, Sir Michael said: "In recent days allegations have been made about MPs' conduct, including my own".
The journalist, radio host Julia Hartley-Brewer, said that he kept doing it until she was forced to threaten to "punch him in the face".
"Many of these have been false but I accept that in the past I have fallen below the high standards that we require of the armed forces that I have the honour to represent", Fallon wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May.
Media captionSir Michael Fallon: "Not right for me to go on as defence secretary". The investigations into these allegations will apply to "all of us", he said, subtly hinting at the number of other accusations which have risen in the last few weeks.
