- Scottish-American actor, singer, dancer, musical theatre performer, writer and television personality
The 54-year-old actor, singer and TV presenter joined the ITV celebrity skating contest as a judge in 2020 and served on the panel for just two series, before he was accused of having previously expose himself to cast and crew while working on Doctor Who spin-off show Torchwood.
ITV has now confirmed Barrowman will not return to Dancing On Ice.
But an ITV spokeswoman added in a statement: “We thank John for two brilliant years on the Dancing On Ice panel and are pleased to be working with him again as host of the forthcoming All Star Musicals specials.”
All Star Musicals sees celebrities perform songs from West End musicals, backed by a chorus in a bid to impress a panel of judges and the audience.
Earlier this year the Torchwood star became caught up in a furore about his behaviour on the set of the BBC drama in 2008, which came to light earlier this year after serious accusations of sexual harassment were made against his former co-star Noel Clarke.
A 2014 video of Clarke talking at a convention emerged where he said Barrowman, who played Captain Jack Harkness, had exposed himself on set "every five seconds". Barrowman was subsequently dropped from various projects associated with the show.
Barrowman addressed the claims in an interview with the Mail's Weekend magazine in July, speaking about the issue for what he said would be the first and last time.
He said: "As Captain Jack Harkness I was the star of Torchwood, so I felt it was down to me to lead the company and keep them entertained."
Adding that his intention was actually to make people feel more comfortable, he said of filming intimate scenes: "I'd be waiting in my trailer wearing just a robe with a sock over my parts. Then, if I were standing waiting to film a scene where I needed to be nude and someone came into view, I'd make a joke to put them and myself at ease.
"My actions were simply designed to defuse any potential awkwardness among the cast and crew."
Barrowman also spoke out to thank fans for their support.
Posting a video on Instagram, the Dancing On Ice judge said: “Hi everybody, it’s John here and I just want to say thank you very much to all of my fans, 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 of their appreciation and kind words.”
