Dancing On Ice 2013 judges Jason Gardiner and Karen Barber really do hate each other, Joe Pasquale has said.
Sunday night saw Joe bow out in the latest Dancing On Ice 2013 results show.
The comic was in the bottom two for the first time after his latest skate, having to perform against pal and fellow comic Keith Chegwin in the skate off.
Despite it being his third time in the danger zone, Keith was saved by all four of the judges over Joe.
Speaking after his exit yesterday, Joe revealed that there was real tension on the panel.
He said: “Those two are great television. It was a great booking, bringing Jason back. And an even better booking bringing Karen back.
“I think they really do hate each other, but Karen is very diplomatic about it.
“In fairness, they need each other. They’re the ying and yang of the show.”
In an interview with The Sun, Joe confessed that he'd still not learned to stop on the ice!
"Even now I still haven’t learned to stop properly. It’s not a good stop. If you look back at my routines, Vicky’s hand comes out and stops me," he said. "We make it look like it’s part of the routine but it’s not — she was stopping me.
“Vicky has been wonderful. We’ve laughed all day long and she’s a great teacher.”
And Joe added: “It was obvious to me who the top three would be — Gareth, Matt and Beth.”
