JOHN Barrowman's husband says the sacked Dancing On Ice star has been 'viciously attacked' over inappropriate behaviour claims.
The Sun revealed the 54-year-old will not be invited back to the ice panel of the ITV skating show after he faced allegations this month that he repeatedly exposed himself on the sets of BBC’s Doctor Who and spin-off Torchwood.
John apologised and said it was “high-spirited behaviour and tomfoolery", before breaking his silence yesterday to thank fans for their support during such a difficult time.
Now his husband Scott Gill has also spoken out, writing on Twitter alongside a snap of them together: "It’s been a ‘challenging' 3 weeks for both of us, watching @JohnBarrowman get hounded in the press & viciously attacked by trolls, but mostly it’s been amazing how many wonderful people have rallied around in support.
"To all of you who have sent us lovely messages – THANK YOU!"
Speaking from his home in Palm Springs, USA, yesterday, John said in a video message: "
Speaking from his home in Palm Springs, USA, John said: "Hi everybody it's John here and I just want to say thank you very much to all of my fan family and everybody who has reached out with the countless messages of support over the last few weeks.
"It has meant such a great deal to me and has really touched me to know that people are supporting me and standing by me and sending their love and all their appreciation and kind words."
John then went on to wish his UK fans a happy bank holiday weekend and his US fans a happy memorial day weekend.
He added: "Hopefully we will all be back together soon and I look forward to it. Much love and thank you."
John's post comes after a source told The Sun Dancing on Ice bosses are determined to protect their family-friendly image.
And they insisted John – who joined the show in 2020 – will not be invited back on to the panel.
One source told us: “Ever since allegations against John came to light, discussions have been ongoing over his future on the panel of Dancing On Ice.
“But the feeling now is there is no way we can invite him back. ITV has shown they are prepared to act decisively when stars are accused of inappropriate behaviour. And it seems this situation will not be the exception to the rule.”
An ITV spokesman said: “Any discussions regarding the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice are very premature.”
