Cold Shoulder for Emma

Ignored: ITV executives have not returned calls from Emma Bunton's agents

ITV bosses appear to be sending a not-so-subtle message to former Spice Girl turned Dancing On Ice judge Emma Bunton, right.

Executives have not returned calls from her agents, who want to find out if she is required for the new series of the celebrity skating show, which starts within weeks. Negotiations have already begun with Jason Gardiner — the show’s controversial but compelling hate figure — but a deal still hasn’t been signed.

After the ratings tumble resulting from the changes to the X Factor judging panel, in my opinion ITV should stick to the tried and tested.

Jason tweeted earlier this evening that he will definitely not be back either.

Think Emma is probably trying to put a brave face and spin on it as it seemed obvious they were not about to rebook her.  Funnily I, for one, am disappointed Jason won't be back as despite being contravertial and sometimes phrasing things unfortunately I do think he knew what he was talking about artistically, unlike Emma who seemed to have little knowledge of anything to do with the show. I do hope they don't as rumoured have Louis Spence or Christopher Biggins as that would certainly put me off watching or at least sky+ ing and forwarding through their contributions!
