Gay actor John Barrowman was bombarded with online abuse after he shared the news of his surprise wedding earlier this month (Jul13).

The Torchwood star wed his longterm partner Scott Gill in the U.S. on 2 July (13) after lawmakers at the country's Supreme Court paved the way for same-sex unions by striking down the controversial Defense of Marriage Act and overturning California's Proposition 8.

Barrowman received a flood of congratulatory messages from fans all over the world, but he has now revealed he also became a target for homophobic abuse.
