Meanwhile, recent reports claimed Dancing On Ice would axe John.

“The feeling now is there is no way we can invite him back,” a source told The Sun in May.

“ITV has shown they are prepared to act decisively when stars are accused of inappropriate behaviour. It seems this situation will not be the exception to the rule.”

However, John’s agent rubbished the claims and told ED that “no decision” had been made yet.

As a result, viewers are unlikely to know John’s fate until autumn.
