The critical ice panelist quipped after a performance from the boxer last month to a Ricky Martin track that his dancing was more “Living La Via Locked-In Syndrome.”
Many fans of the show hitting out at his comment at the expense of those suffering the condition.
One viewer complained online: “Totally tasteless and uncalled for I really hope people complain about that. Locked in syndrome is a horrifying condition and should never ever be used as an insult, especially to insult a celeb on a reality tv show.”
Telly watchdog Ofcom confirmed it had received 24 complaints about the remark since the show aired.
Jason originally defended the comment, tweeting: “I think it’s good to bring taboo topics into the open.”
But he later apologised, telling viewers: “I sincerely apologise for any offence caused. That was never my intention.”
A spokesperson for TV watchdog Ofcom today confirmed that the complaints had not been upheld.
They said: "Ofcom decided the remark was justified by the context.
"What he said did not exceed the expectations of the audience as Jason Gardiner is well-known for his acerbic comments about contestants and is often quite critical of them."
