He continued to be with the Cats troupe for another few years and performed the roles of many characters, including Alonzo, Rumpus Cat, Rum Tum Tugger and Munkustrap. His performance as the Rum Tum Tugger highlighted his skills and made him a part of the official film produced at Adelphi Theatre. He was also the Dance Captain for a couple of his final years.
He continued to appear on many TV Shows, including Aspects of Dancing, The Hot Shoe Show and Game On. In between 2008 and 2012, John was featured in the EastEnders show as a permanent cast member.

John has always loved his mother. His mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The announcement made a big hole in the life of Partridge. He allegedly left the most important television show of his life, EastEnders following this incident. He even faced too much stress due to such news. Although, John decided to be a part of Celebrity Big Brother as a means to fund the treatment of her mother.
