“It’s been an emotional day knowing that I was coming on the show and thanks for inviting me on. But even this building [the former BBC TV Centre] was obviously where my career started all those years ago and ‘This Morning’ where my career ended. So it’s been quite a journey.”

He continued: “I just wanted a quiet life, and was living away from the media, but I just feel my reputation follows me around. I became a kind of target and when I was out in public, things happened and people made allegations and stuff and I never got the chance to speak out. So, when it happened this time I felt enough is enough, it has to stop.”

Asked if he thought it should be that those accused of sexual assault remain anonymous until proven guilty, John replied: “I am living proof that it’s got to stop. You can’t have your life ruined on the back of false allegations.
