John Barrowman cut a casual figure as he enjoyed a night out at The Ivy in Chelsea, London on Sunday. 

The actor, 54, appeared in good spirits as he departed the swanky venue, sporting a black top and navy jeans.

The outing comes as ITV revealed John will not form part of the judging panel for the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice five months after he apologised for exposing himself on Doctor Who sets in historic incidents.

Sporting a grey jacket and a pair of black trainers, John completed his outfit with a matching bag.

The former Torchwood star is back in the UK after he spent some time in Palm Springs, California last month alongside his husband Scott Gill.  

The television personality, who joined Dancing On Ice last year and appeared in two seasons, previously admitted to 'tomfoolery' on the sets of Doctor Who.

He began playing Captain Jack Harkness in 2005 and spin-off series Torchwood a year later.

Of the axing, a source told The Sun: 'This will be devastating for him. Clearly ITV feel it’s not a good look to have someone like John centre-stage on a family­-friendly show.'

An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline John will not return to the dancing show but will be seen on the channel again when he returns to host All Star Musicals.

Representatives for the channel said: 'We thank John Barrowman for two brilliant years on the Dancing on Ice panel and are pleased to be working with him again as host of the forthcoming All Star Musicals specials.'

A show insider added 'John has not been "sacked" from Dancing on Ice and we continue to work with him at ITV'.

John's team said: 'John is thrilled to be returning to work for ITV as host on the new All Star Musicals' but declined to comment on his departure from the skating show.

Former Strictly judge Arlene Phillips, 78, has been tipped to be his replacement.

No charges were brought against the media personality after allegations about him exposing himself were revealed in May following more serious allegations of sexual harassment against his Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke.
