ITV was last night urged to ditch Dancing on Ice’s John Barrowman after he was accused of exposing himself on TV sets.
The actor, 54, is accused of repeatedly exposing himself on the sets of BBC’s Doctor Who and spin-off Torchwood.
Doctor Who executive producer Julie Gardner confirmed she had reprimanded him after a complaint about his lewd behaviour on Torchwood.
Witnesses describe the flashing as inappropriate pranks, not sexually predatory behaviour.
The Guardian newspaper said Jena (not her real name), a runner and driver on Doctor Who in the early 2000s, said she often saw Barrowman expose himself on set, saying: “He would get his genitals out on a regular basis . . . which he just thought was really funny.”
The actor, who played flamboyant Captain Jack Harkness in both shows, apologised for his antics which he described as “high- spirited behaviour, larking about and tomfoolery”.
I have never been a fan of John Barrowman to be honest I though he came across as cocky in the jungle and he just tries to jog the limelight on dancing on ice by being 'FABOULOUS'. Jason Gardener was much better with his Mr nasty persona on the show. Bring him back.
Yeah he sure loves the spotlight on dancing on ice i've noticed, but if he's been doing stuff like this on set then it's not good at all, plenty of people to replace him i suppose. I like a bit of dancing on ice, good show - just wish i could skate like that lol
