Dancing On Ice 2013 judges: Jason Gardiner gets death threats!

Jason Gardiner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Poor Dancing On Ice 2013 judge Jason Gardiner has been getting death threats!

The always critical ice panelist revealed this week that his comments on the show were still earning him plenty of haters.

But he reckons this series has also showed why he's needed on the panel.

He said this week: "Coming back into the show, I kind of now realise, that they also realise that I know what I'm doing...."

He added: "Its a nice feeling to be appreciated finally."

However Jason said he didn't miss the show during his 'year off'.

He explained: It was nice having that time out actually I think and go off and do other things - and I've moved to Madrid, which has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. It's great."

Jason confessed that dealing with the hate was tough, branding some of the commentators on Twitter "vile".

He said: "Its interesting because for the first few series it was fine, because it was 'pantomime villain' but then the tone changed, and the word bullying and death threats.

"I had death threats and it just became really - You kind of think 'what world are we living in', this is a light family entertainment show and I'm just giving it some spice, but people took it so offensively."

Jason concluded: "I'm quite colourful anyway as you know, I have kind of a wicked sense of humour and I'm not everybody's cup of tea - I also know that. But I don't mind that. Drink another variety! "
