John Barrowman has been "viciously attacked" over his alleged inappropriate behaviour, according to his husband Scott Gill.

The 54 year old actor is said to have been axed from his judging position on Dancing On Ice after allegations emerged that he repeatedly exposed himself on the sets of BBC's Doctor Who and spin-off Torchwood.

And a day after John broke his silence on the matter, his husband has now admitted that it has been a "challenging" few weeks for the both of them.

Sharing a Twitter snap of the two of them at a pub, Scott explained that online trolls have targeted his other half.

He wrote: "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!"

This comes after John said he said he was "touched" to have people stand by him after the alleged consequences of his reported actions in a statement shared to his Instagram.

"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," John began.

Speaking from his home in Palm Springs, the actor continued: "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.

"Hopefully, we will all be back together soon, and I look forward to it. Much love and thank you."

This comes after John is said to have been axed from DOI following allegations he exposed himself on the sets of Doctor Who and Torchwood.

John later apologised via his lawyers for "toomfoolery" but insisted he did "not recall" incidents alleged by two women in The Guardian article.

According to the publication, several sources, including two women, claimed that the Dancing On Ice star exposed himself on set.

However, the paper reports that witnesses have described the incidents as "inappropriate pranks" and not "anything amounting to sexually predatory behaviour".
