In a now-deleted tweet Ian appeared to address to confusion on Monday [December 26].

‘Hi James… I recently signed up for a clean up of ‘bots’ & ‘phobes,’ he wrote.

‘Apologies if the blocking offended… I didn’t do this manually! Merry Christmas.’

The singer shot to fame in the 90s with the British pop group, alongside Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee and Faye Tozer.

Ian was in a long-term relationship with Craig Ryder and have two children together, twin sons Macsen and Cybi, who were born via surrogate.

Craig and Ian have since gone their separate ways but continue to co-parent their children.
