Dancing On Ice 2013 judges: Jason Gardiner gets security after death threats

Jason Gardiner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 judge Jason Gardiner has asked bosses to provide him with his own security!

The ice panelist has found himself in hot water recently over a remark he made to Shayne Ward about his performance to Ricky Martin's Livin' La Vida Loca.

He quipped on the live show: "It was more Livin' La Vida Locked In Syndrome."

And it was a comment that saw some viewers demand that Jason be axed, and saw the critical judge get death threats.

A tad too far, we can't help but feel.

Jason turned to producers who have provided him with "protection at all times" for the time being.

A source said: "He's receiving vile abuse in the street and n twitter. It's fair to say he's the most hated man on TV right now.

"He had no choice but to talk to bosses they agreed to provide him with protection at all times."

A spokesperson for Dancing On Ice confirmed that security was available to all of the judges and contestants.
