*But* did you know that Joe wasn't actually married to John? In an archived video clip, viewers see the three men getting hitched at a polyamorous wedding six years ago.

They wore matching bright pink shirts, with Joe stood in the middle and John and Travis either side.

But, it turns out Joe was never legally married to John - who ended up doing a runner with a female member of staff at Joe's zoo. Just one of the wild things that happened during the series.

Appearing on Lights Out With David Spade, John explained he's currently engaged to be married.

"Right now I have a fiancé," he said.

"But just to clear the record, me and Joe were never legally married. Ever.

"The girl I ran off with, we had a kid, we spent three years together. We never got engaged, never got married, anything like that. I will be married soon."

John also explained that despite the fact he had a polyamorous ceremony with Travis as well as Joe, they weren't actually that close. "We weren't great friends but we were friends," he said.

One of the biggest bombshells to drop from the chat was about Joe's music. John claimed that in the series, it "was not Joe singing".
