Bobbitt wants ex-wife back.

PORN star John Wayne Bobbitt has backed out of an Edinburgh Festival Fringe freak show - because he doesn't want to drop his trousers.

And he also claims he wants to spend time on winning back ex-wife Lorena, who chopped off his manhood.

Yesterday, he said: "I feel I am now ready to talk to Lorena and see what made her do the thing.

"What I would like to do is a one to one with Lorena on national TV to answer my questions about what happened and why.

"After the interview, I would like to go out with Lorena to dinner and see where that leads to. Who knows? If all goes good, we just might get back together."

Bobbitt, who has been making his living as a porn star since doctors managed to reattach his severed organ after his wife attacked him in June 1993, had been due to appear with the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow.

He said he thought he would be performing magic tricks and escape acts but circus boss Rose said Bobbitt's most famous attribute would be on show.

He added: "That's what people know him for so I guess that's what they'll expect to see."

Lorena maintains she cut off his manhood with a kitchen knife because he tried to force her to have sex after he had been drinking.

She then drove off and threw it out of the car window but after a search it was found and doctors managed to reattach it.

She was later cleared of assault on the basis of temporary insanity and Bobbitt was acquitted of marital rape.

Earlier this year, Lorena revealed she had a new love in her life.
