Dancing On Ice judges: Jason Gardiner warns the celebs!

Jason Gardiner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Jason Gardiner has promised Dancing On Ice 2013 viewers more no holds barred comments from him!

The harsh ice panelist is back on the show this year after being axed last series, and he's ready to give the celebs his brutally honest view!

Sunday night will see the new judge DOI panel of judges, which this year includes new member Ashley Roberts, making their debut along with the celebrity line up.

Twelve stars have signed up for the show and will skate live for the first time on Sunday evening.

But Jason won't be going easy on them.

"I just call it as I see it," he warns. "You know what to expect!"

And he confessed things were still frosty between him and Karen Barber after they fell out live on the show two years ago.

"Have we had a meeting? We haven't seen each other since the last time I was on the show and we literally just said 'hello' this morning," he said at this week's press launch.

But head judge Robin Cousins is expecting fireworks, he said: "I think the two years off for Karen have done her good. I've seen a new feisty side to the Barber. Who knows who is going to say what to whom!"

Meanwhile Jason admitted he thought bosses were joking when they invited him back on the show.

He said: "I thought it was a joke. I really did. I thought it was someone trying to wind me up."
