John Barrowman’s husband has said that the star has been “viciously attacked” over inappropriate behaviour claims.
It was reported this week that the 54-year-old was axed from his role as a judge on Dancing On Ice following allegations that he repeatedly exposed himself on the sets of BBC’s Doctor Who and spin-off Torchwood.
Now his husband Scott Gill has taken to Twitter to speak out, sharing a pic of the couple together and writing: "It’s been a ‘challenging' 3 weeks for both of us, watching @JohnBarrowman get hounded in the press & viciously attacked by trolls, but mostly it’s been amazing how many wonderful people have rallied around in support.
"To all of you who have sent us lovely messages – THANK YOU!”
John broke his silence yesterday, thanking his fans for their support in a video message from his home in Palm Springs.
He said: "Hi everybody it's John here and I just want to say thank you very much to all of my fan 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 their appreciation and kind words."
He then wished his UK fans a happy bank holiday weekend and his US fans a happy memorial day weekend and added: "Hopefully we will all be back together soon and I look forward to it. Much love and thank you.”

It comes after a source told the Sun that Dancing On Ice bosses were keen to protect their family friendly image and as a result had sacked John from the judging panel.
The source said: “Ever since allegations against John came to light, discussions have been ongoing over his future on the panel of Dancing On Ice.
“But the feeling now is there is no way we can invite him back. ITV has shown they are prepared to act decisively when stars are accused of inappropriate behaviour. And it seems this situation will not be the exception to the rule.”
However, an an ITV spokesperson told Daily Star: "Any discussions regarding the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice are very premature."
