John Barrowman has been warned against dropping his trousers in front of the other campmates on ‘I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!’.
The 51-year-old actor is known for his wild ways, but has reportedly been told he’s not to flash his genitals at his fellow campmates whilst he appears on the ITV celebrity survival show, as he’s been placed on a “flashing ban”.
An insider told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
“John has promised he’ll be on his best behaviour, and will be on a self-imposed flashing ban. But fully intends to show everything in the showers.
“John has raised eyebrows in the past by going a bit far with his party antics.
“He’s certainly not shy when it comes to his body, and tends to be quite impulsive and act in the moment which they hope could make him a favourite with viewers.
“But equally they’re worried he might get carried away especially with the jungle boredom and sharing the camp with a few handsome men.”
The ban comes after the former ‘Torchwood’ star apologised for exposing himself on a live BBC Radio 1 show in 2008.
During the incident, he pulled down his trousers after being goaded into it by presenters Nick Grimshaw, 34, and Annie Mac, 40, and after just one complaint was made, the BBC also apologised and said he’d “overstepped the mark”.
In his apology at the time, the ‘Arrow’ star said:
“I apologise for any offence I have caused. I was joining in the light-hearted and fun banter of the show and went too far. I was wrong to do this and it will never happen again. I really appreciate the great support I have received from the BBC over the last few years and would never intentionally do anything to undermine the integrity of the corporation.”
