John Barrowman set to make TV return after ITV ‘sacking’

Former Doctor Who and Dancing On Ice star John is going to be back on screens with a new Channel 4 project soon, it has been announced.

John hasn’t appeared on TV since historic reports of his behaviour on the sets of Doctor Who and Torchwood resurfaced. The 56-year-old was accused of repeatedly exposing himself behind the scenes of the hit shows.

However, John has apologised for his behaviour. He claimed it was “only ever intended in good humour to entertain colleagues on set and backstage”.

“With the benefit of hindsight, I understand that upset may have been caused by my exuberant behaviour and I have apologised for this previously,” he then also added. However, he was subsequently replaced as a judge on Dancing On Ice.

However, he is now set to return to screens with a stint on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Former Doctor Who star kicked out of restaurant

John’s exciting news comes not long after he publically called out a restaurant after being kicked out.

Standing outside of the restaurant, John explained what had just happened in a video. “The weirdest thing just happened to us,” he said.

“We went in there and wanted to eat there and, basically, in a polite way, the gentleman guided us out of one restaurant. took us to another, and kind of persuaded us not to come in,” he then said. “Kicked us out!” he then added.

Fans were outraged on John’s behalf. “Shame on them!” one follower commented. “Well, let’s be honest here, shall we! You guys are obviously far too “GAWJUS” and “FABULOUS” for that restaurant!” another then said. “OMG… I will never eat at one of their restaurants. I’m sorry, John,” a third then wrote.

However, the restaurant then got in contact with the star to apologise, so here’s hoping for a happy ending!
