Dancing On Ice 2013: Phillip Schofield loves unpredictable Jason Gardiner

Jason Gardiner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 host Phillip Schofield has been full of praise for Jason Gardiner!

The ice judge returned to the show this year and has already caused a storm.

Viewers were up in arms at the weekend after he compared Shayne Wards's routine to Ricky Martin hit Livin La Vida Loca to suffering from Locked In Syndrome.

But Phil loves that Jason is always unpredictable.

And he revealed that the rivalry between Jason and fellow judge Karen Barber is very much real and not just for the cameras.

He said: ”In telly we always say that everyone’s lovely, that we all get on. And we do – apart from Karen and Jason!

”I don’t know what will happen. Jason, at the moment, is in control. But only of himself.

He confessed: "There’s every possibility he’ll eventually turn really nasty. They’re close enough for there to be a glass of water thrown!”

Jason previously bigged up his return to the show, claiming it would get the series back on top.

He said last month: “It feels right [to return]. For the whole year that I wasn’t there… there was a piece missing.

“I think I can only help [the show]… I bring the controversy, I guess. I keep it very interesting and I keep it real.”

However despite Jason's boasts, currently the Dancing On Ice ratings are at their lowest ever.

Dancing On Ice airs on Sundays on ITV.
