Barrowman, 54, was accused of repeatedly exposing himself on the sets of other shows, before it was confirmed that he had been sacked from DOI.

Earlier today, fans noted that the Torchwood star had gone “very quiet” online, as he made his Twitter account private and removed his profile picture.

But he’s now broken his silence on social media – posting A Family Weekend and ignoring being kicked off the ITV show.

In a Tweet he wrote: “Fly this morning from #Minneaolic to #Dallas then connect to #PalmSprings on @AmericanAir

“My parents had a great weekend seeing their grandchildren. Now at home. Jb.

A short family video accompanied the social media post.

In a second tweet, Barrowman said: “Misty takeoff, 1st flight to #Dallas @AmericanAir with @jomarbarrowman JB”

This time the tweet was posted alongside a short video of a plane on a runway.

Barrowman’s profile on the microblogging site – which currently has more than 500,000 subscribers – only allows approved users to view his tweets.

New subscribers must be “approved” by Barrowman, who now uses a blue circle as their profile picture and an LQBTQ + flag as their profile banner.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that the star was officially banned from the hit ITV show Dancing On Ice after several allegations of sexual misconduct.

Barrowman, who rose to prominence in Doctor Who, served on the prime-time show’s panel for two years.

A TV insider said: “It will be devastating for him. It’s clear ITV thinks it’s not nice to have someone like John at the center of a family show.

He was kicked out of Dancing on Ice after admitting he shouldn’t have exposed himself on sets and apologized for his behavior.

Stories of Barrowman’s shady behavior resurfaced in May, after allegations of sexual harassment and trial-and-error were made against Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke.

A 2015 video resurfaced, in which Clarke claimed Barrowman would expose himself “every five seconds” backstage.

He would also have flashed in 2008 during an interview with Radio 1 discussing his obscene pranks. He then apologized for going too far.

Barrowman – who finished third in 2018 in I’m A Celebrity – entered therapy earlier this year to help with his behavior.

He said: “It was different times, which is why I wouldn’t do now what I was doing then. I recognized it in passing, my behavior has changed.

“I always believed that the reason I was put on this planet was to bring joy to people, to make them laugh. My way of doing things has evolved over the years.

“I still use humor, just in a different way than I might have been ten or twenty years ago.”

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

ITV hasn’t severed all ties with John, however – and has confirmed that they will continue to work with him on a separate show.

A spokesperson said: “We thank John for a brilliant two years on the Dancing on Ice panel and are delighted to be working with him again as the host of the upcoming All Star Musicals specials.”
