JOHN Barrowman has sensationally quit Twitter after slamming his Torchwood co-star.
The 55-year-old actor and presenter has had a difficult couple of years after it was claimed in summer 2021 that he had "exposed himself" on set while filming the BBC Doctor Who spin-off series.
John insisted he had only done so to "entertain" his colleagues and denied it was sexual harrassment, but the furore led to him leaving Dancing on Ice ahead of this year's series in January.
John has kept a relatively low profile since, but fans were quick to notice when he disappeared off Twitter this week.
One wrote: "Hold up, what's happened to @JohnBarrowman's account? Has it gone because it keeps throwing up and error message when I try to click on his name? Anyone know what's up there?"
Another added: "Has he blocked me or did he take my advice."
Others quickly shared a screenshot of one of John's last tweets, which was in reply to a fan who had shared a video of him alongside Torchwood co-star Eve Myles.
The pair were seen saying they would do anything for each other, but the fan wrote above the video: "Not saying anything else, and I kinda don't want to bring this up, but whatever happened to this? Especially that last part."
John replied: "One is telling the truth! One is spewing rhetoric for an audience…"
But the star – who played Captain Jack Harkness in Torchwood – soon found himself being slammed by fans of the show.

One wrote: "I don't know what's going on, but please don't do this. Putting someone you were close with on blast like this isn't a good look for you. I think you should talk with Eve privately and air out any grievances you have together."
Another added: "To say that about Eve Myles really was the final straw, sadly, things like that should be kept private."
A third tweeted: "publicly digging at someone you used to call a friend isn’t clever."
