John Barrowman blocks fans from his Twitter and deletes profile pic after being sacked from Dancing On Ice

JOHN Barrowman has blocked fans from viewing his Twitter profile unless they have been "approved".

The former Dancing On Ice judge – who was axed from the show after sexual misconduct claims resurfaced – also deleted his profile snap.


John, 54, was accused of repeatedly exposing himself on the sets of other shows before it was confirmed he'd been sacked from DOI.

Now, the Torchwood star has made his Twitter account private and removed his profile picture as fans noted that he's gone "awfully quiet".

John's profile on the microblogging site – which currently has over 500,000 followers – only allows approved users to look at his tweets.

New followers must be "approved" by John, who is now using a blue circle as his profile photo and an LGBTQ+ flag as a profile banner.

"John Barrowman has been awfully quiet recently," one follower took to the site to point out of his change in social media output.

"John Barrowman has gone into hiding protecting all tweets and changing his profile and cover pics," a second suggested of his new layout.

A third scathed: "John Barrowman has just protected his tweets. Perhaps he feels he has something he should hide, or should have left hidden."

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that John had been officially axed from hit ITV show Dancing On Ice after repeat sexual misconduct claims.

Barrowman, who found fame in Doctor Who and spin-off Torchwood, was on the prime-time show’s panel for two years.

A TV insider said: “This will be devastating for him. Clearly ITV feel it’s not a good look to have someone like John centre-stage on a family­-friendly show.”

Barrowman was axed from Dancing on Ice after admitting he should not have exposed himself on sets and apologised for his behaviour.

Stories of his sleazy behaviour resurfaced in May when co-star Noel Clarke was alleged to have of sexually harassed and groped a string of women.

A 2015 video resurfaced showing Clarke claim Barrowman would expose himself “every five seconds" behind the scenes.

He was also said to have flashed in 2008 during a Radio 1 interview discussing his lewd pranks. He later apologised for going too far.

Barrowman — who came third in 2018’s I’m A Celebrity — went into therapy earlier this year to help with his behaviour.

He said: “They were different times, which is why I wouldn’t do now what I did then. I’ve acknowledged that by the way my behaviour has changed.

“I’ve always believed that the reason I was put on this planet was to bring joy to people, make them laugh. How I do that has evolved over the years.

“I’m still using humour, just in a different way than might have been the case ten or 20 years ago.”

Barrowman insisted earlier this year that his Dancing on Ice job was safe after two years on the panel, calling it "business as usual".

Dancing on Ice, presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, returned in 2018 after its initial five-year run ended in 2011.

ITV have not severed all ties with John, however – and confirmed they would continue to work with him on a separate show.

A spokeswoman said: “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.”

The Sun approached Barrowman’s representatives for comment.
