Dancing On Ice 2013 star Matt Lapinskas has claimed that show judges Jason Gardiner and Karen Barber really do HATE one another.

He said today: "People think it’s all for the cameras but they hate each other.”

Speaking on Daybreak yesterday, Karen said she and Jason would never fix their problems.

“On a Sunday I try to do my job as professionally as I can and I don’t have the time or the energy to try to resolve something that probably can’t ever be resolved. It is what it is," she said.

Meanwhile, Matt revealed how the show has left his mum full of worry and nerves.

"My mum hates it when I tell her what I’ve been doing," he said. "She says ‘shut up, I don’t want to know’. She’s supportive but she’ll be pleased when it’s all over and she knows I’m safe.”

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, the hunky soap star also revealed that the series had been a "blessing in disguise" for his relationship.

"I’ll train all week and we’ll text each other, but when we spend the weekends together we’ve got so much to talk about," he said. "It’s like the time we were first getting to know each other.

“The show has been really good for our relationship. It’s healthy for us, my career, and everything else.

"Landing this show has been a real blessing in disguise. And I love to dance and entertain so it’s perfect.”
