DOI' Gardiner 'infuriated' by Barber

I am smug


Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner has reportedly expressed annoyance at Karen Barber.

Gardiner admitted that he finds the former judge - who now fills the role of head coach on the ITV reality show - to be "infuriating", and questioned her purpose in the competition, according to The Sun.

In Barber's new role, the 49-year-old is able to defend the contestants against the judges' criticism and respond to their comments.

"Why is she still here? I find the woman infuriating," the paper quotes Gardiner as saying.

"I know she protects and she's mother hen and all that sort of stuff, but the thing that annoys me about her is that she doesn't actually listen to the critiques that we're giving. She just keeps saying how hard they're working and how far they've come."

On last Sunday's show, Gardiner and Barber clashed over Johnson Beharry's routine, which Gardiner awarded a two out of ten.

Gardiner has now apparently told Beharry not to "let that battleaxe Karen Barber hinder his progress".

I'm not buying this. I reckon it's just a bit of nonsense they're spinning the make out there's some sort of 'feud' between them to make the show more exciting. I doubt Jason would dare say that about Karen, she's far too important on the show.

I very much doubt Karen would let him away with it either. She might be all sweet and lovely but her insides are definitely made of steel. I imagine all pro ice skaters have a bit of that in them, it's a fairly dangerous occupation. Better if she doesn't let herself be drawn into things like this anyway, Jason doesn't need any help looking like a big twat.

probably just to generate headlines with controversy like the judges on the x factor did. it'll hopefully get more viewers and voters.
