Dancing On Ice 2013: Matt Lapinskas loves Jason Gardiner (quite a lot)

Matt Lapinskas and Brianne (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice star Matt Lapinskas has been trying to get Jason Gardiner on side, by syaing how lovely he is!

Matt's already impressed Jason with the first two live shows out of the way, even if the often critical ice judge can't quite always remember his name.

And Matt seems to think praising Jason will stop him from getting any bad comments.

It's quite possible!

Matt gushed this week: "He's an absolutely genius when it comes to choreography.

"I know if I do something wrong he will be very critical of it. He is a legend in his own right. He called me Mark the other week so he doesn't really know who I am!

"Hopefully this week he'll remember my name."

However Matt, who is the current favourite to win, admitted that even Jason sometimes did go too far.

Matt said of his apparent new best pal: "His personal comments are a bit too much."

Quick to make sure he stays in Jason's good books, Matt added: "His comments about he skating and performances are absolutely fantastic and hg e is great at that."
