The 'Torchwood' actor - who was accused of exposing himself on the set of the programme and 'Doctor Who' - was due to appear as his character Captain Jack Harkness in a pre-recorded video in 'Doctor Who: Time Fracture', but the show's producers confirmed the clip has been removed.

A statement under the FAQ "what's happening with Captain Jack Harkness and Torchwood in the show?" on the production's website reads: "Immersive Everywhere have taken the decision to remove this pre record from Doctor Who: Time Fracture.

"We will continue to include content that pays tribute to this brilliant show that is Torchwood so as not to disappoint its fans, and are working on an exciting storyline to be announced soon. (sic)"

Last week, John - who first starred as Jack in a 2005 episode of 'Doctor Who' - admitted to "tomfoolery" on the sets of the two sci-fi shows, and insisted his "high-spirited behaviour" was "only ever intended in good humour to entertain colleagues on set and backstage".

The 54-year-old star said: "With the benefit of hindsight, I understand that upset may have been caused by my exuberant behaviour and I have apologised for this previously.

"Since my apology in November 2008, my understanding and behaviour have also changed."

In 2008, John said sorry for pulling his trousers down while being interviewed on BBC Radio 1, admitting he "went too far".

He said at the time: "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."
