The 31-year-old, who made waves with his decision to retire from rugby prior to the Rugby World Cup, secured a role as a rugby pundit with the network ahead of the 2023/24 season.

However, he has been missing from the channels coverage of European Rugby and the Gallagher Premiership in recent weeks.

A spokesperson for the television company commented, “It would not be appropriate for us to offer comment at this juncture.”

Earlier this year, reports circulated widely regarding the arrest of the former Scotland rugby captain at the residence of his estranged wife, allegedly for incidents of threatening or abusive behaviour.

A representative from Police Scotland stated that a detailed report outlining any alleged offenses will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Additionally, Hogg is a co-owner of the FF West End restaurant and cocktail bar in Glasgow alongside fellow ex-Scotland rugby international Alastair Kellock.

He is also Scotland’s all time leading try scorer. In his club career he won national and European titles with both Glasgow Warriors and Exeter Chiefs.

Hogg was selected for three British and Irish Lions tours as well, being the youngest player in the squad for Australia in 2013 and then having his 2017 tour of New Zealand cut short by injury.

He would eventually win Test caps for the Lions on the tour of South Africa in 2021, playing in the 22-17 win over the Springboks in the first match of the series and the 27-9 defeat in the second.

England handed easy pool for 2027 Rugby World Cup

The new format will feature six pools of four teams, with a round of 16 added prior to the quarter-finals.

This will enable the tournament window to be reduced from seven to six weeks, while promoting a rhythm that builds momentum across the pool phase and respects the same minimum number of rest days between matches as at France 2023.
