John Barrowman can’t wait to return to Australia

From West End leading man to time-traveling hero, John is the ultimate showman.

In addition to song and dance, he shares humorous and heart-warming stories and anecdotes from his life and career. John Barrowman MBE first performed for his parents’ parties in Scotland when he was a wee boy.

He’s entertained audiences on stage and screen around the world ever since.

John can’t wait to return to Australia even after spraining an ankle here during the filming of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here last year.

Despite the injury, he survived all the way to the final day of the competition. He finished as a finalist with winner Harry Redknapp and runner-up Emily Atack.

John told The Sun, “Scott (husband Scott Gill) and I have started to look at places on Australia’s Gold Coast.” He credits Australia with helping relaunch his career, during his time in the rainforest here.
