Tim Healy says Jason Gardiner is lucky he didn't get punched in Dancing On Ice Row over Denise Welch

MILLIONS watched Denise Welch’s hubby tear a strip off Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner after he cruelly attacked her performance.

But what they didn’t realise is that Tim Healy came very close to chinning him and had to be restrained by friends.

Loose Women star Denise, 52, was horrified as she saw him leap out of the audience – and was terrified he was about to punch Gardiner.

She admits: “I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to hit him’.

“But I ran up to him and said ‘don’t do it again’, so my friends were shackling him down.”

Now she says she wishes he had – after Gardiner launched a sneaky personal attack, accusing Tim of having bad breath.

Actor Tim, 59, angrily confronted Gardiner, 39, live on air after he described Denise’s routine as “like watching two people playing Twister”. Tim ran on and snarled into Gardiner’s face: “She’s got four jobs – how many have you got, eh?” He was still seething as he admitted later: “He was lucky I didn’t chin him.”

At first mum-of-two Denise appeared to laugh off the incident. But the row took a nasty new twist yesterday when Gardiner took another swipe after she and her skating partner Matt Evers were booted off the show on Sunday.

Gardiner tweeted: “Those who think I was rude to Tim Healy can shove it. He got in my face with breath that smelt of stale p*ss and alcohol while I was talking.”

He added: “I’m not perfect, but at least I have oral hygiene.”

Denise said: “It wasn’t so much what he said on the show that bothered me – none of that ever has done – it was the fact he made it personal the next day.

“He has no right to say those things about Tim. It’s completely unnecessary.

“How dare he say my husband has bad breath!

“First of all it’s not true – I wouldn’t have married a man who stank of p*ss! – and secondly it takes it away from the fact this is supposed to be a skating show.”

She added: “It’s so upsetting, I thought he was my friend. If I’d known what he was going to say, then I’d have told Tim to hit him!”

Now she has questioned whether Gardiner is fit to continue.

She said: “This time he has overstepped the mark with what he said about Tim. To respond in that way is just childish and unfunny.”

She added: “Tim doesn’t know what Twitter is, but I think he will be quite upset by the insult. It is cowardly and unnecessary.”

In a final dig at Gardiner she said: “He will never know what it’s like to be bottom of the leaderboard and the public having to vote hard to get you through. That is a lot of people picking up the phone. It’s a lovely, fantastic experience.”
