Singer Kylie Minogue's troublesome ex-boyfriend James Gooding has reportedly been causing mayhem in his new incarnation as a TV presenter.

The former model is filming a new BBC show in a number of European cities, but in Milan Gooding threw a diva-esque strop and checked himself into a separate hotel to the rest of the crew without telling anyone else.

And this is just one of many alleged incidents, according to British newspaper the SUNDAY MIRROR.

A crew member remarks, "He's been quite difficult and often disappears without a word. Sometimes his behaviour leads you to wonder if he is still a little bruised from the messy break-up from Kylie.

"He's probably feeling it after becoming a national hate figure for kissing and telling about his relationship with Kylie. James is certainly proving to be a bit of a handful."
