During the presscon for her upcoming horror movie Maledicto alongside Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Tom Rodriguez, young actress Miles Ocampo was asked whether or not John Lloyd Cruz would return to the weekend sitcom Home Sweetie Home - a question raised following Mile's revelation that the show is getting reformatted as Piolo Pascual will leave the show to study abroad.
Dismissing the speculations alongside the rumors that Piolo is leaving Home Sweetie Home to give way for John Lloyd Cruz, Ocampo told ABS-CBN News: “[May mga nagco-comment nga na ganun eh], na nag-give way si Piolo. Sabi ko hindi naman kasi wala pa naman kaming nababalitaan na ganun."
Then again, Ocampo gave her reassurance to fans that John Lloyd Cruz, whom she constantly keeps in touch with, is doing fine.
“Nakakausap ko naman si kuya Lloydie pero hindi kasi ako nagtatanong ng anything related sa trabaho kasi nahihiya ako. Pero nagkakamustahan kami, okay naman. Masaya naman siya," she stated.
While John Lloyd's return is not happening anytime soon, she revealed that new characters are coming to the show.
"Nagre-reformat 'yung show namin. May mga bagong papasok sa pamilya namin. Sobrang thankful lang talaga ako na tuloy pa rin 'yung show namin," she said.
It was in October 2017 when John Lloyd decided to take an "indefinite leave" from showbiz to attend to personal matters."
