John Barrowman should be “sacked from all shows”, claiming his ongoing All Star Musical special has angered fans.
Dancing on Ice judge The 54-year-old star lost her spot on the ITV show after sexual misconduct claims surfaced again.
Yet in a statement released after the news, an ITV spokesperson insisted that this was not the end of the line for his tele duties on the channel.
They added that they are “delighted to work with him again as the host of the upcoming All Star Musical Special.”
This angered some fans and shared their grievances on Twitter.
One demanded: “John Barrowman should be sacked from all shows, not just one! How can you give a guy with a history of gross sexual misconduct an #ITV All Star Musical host??? “
Another wrote: “John Barrowman being removed from an ITV show (Dancing on Ice) but still appearing in another ITV show (All Star Musical) should tell you that society stands with its victims How does he behave?”
One then wondered: “What’s the point of removing someone from their show because of someone’s behavior if they’re still going to work with them on other shows? There’s hardly a good image.”
Another took the opposite view and fought John’s corner, writing: “Good! And rightly so, it’s nice to see ITV with some common sense in this improbable witchhunt.
“Thanks John, you’re a great host on All-Star Musical. Get back on the way!”
