Jason GardinerDancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner has never been one to mince his words.

And during this series, it seems he’s been harsher than ever to the celebs who’ve taken to the ice.

‘I’m here to do a job and I’m going to be true to myself,’ he says. ‘These shows risk being bland if they don’t have at least one person who doesn’t sugarcoat everything.’

Meanwhile, Jason confesses that the feud between him and fellow judge Karen Barber rumbles on.

He says, ‘We’re all very passionate about what we do and things can linger off-camera. Actually, sometimes the better show is what happens off stage!

‘There are some things that have played out in front of the nation that you wish hadn’t.’

Dancing on Ice continues on ITV tonight, Sunday 10 February, at 6:15pm.
