Rip roaring! John Barrowman suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction
John Barrowman suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction
GLASGOW-BORN entertainer John Barrowman was left red-faced when his
trousers split on stage in front of his home crowd - to reveal his white pants.
The cheeky performer was dancing to Don't Blame It On The Boogie at
his packed Royal Concert Hall show last night when an energetic dance
move led to the embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
The singer and star of Doctor Who and Torchwood told the amused
audience - which included his parents and partner - "Mum, thank God
you made me put on clean underpants!"
John giggled: "I don't think I have any more trousers with me -
they're all packed on the bus!"
The band had to take over the entertainment while stage staff hunted
for a replacement during last night's concert - and thankfully found
a new pair.
John, 42, who was born in Glasgow and lived in Mount Vernon as a
child before moving to America, had earlier got his mum Marion, 73,
up on stage to join him in the song Amazing Grace.
Barrowman used to dance and sing on the counter of the record shop
where she worked in Shettleston in the East End before the family
headed for Illinois when he was eight.
John - who has a civil partnership with partner Scott - later found
fame starring in Broadway musicals before launching a TV career.
But he's never forgotten his Scottish roots.
At the end of the concert the performer was in tears as he told the
screaming crowd: "I absolutely love being back in Glasgow. As long as
you'll have me I'll keep coming back."
