Dancing On Ice 2013 judges: Jason Gardiner continues Karen Barber war

Jason Gardiner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing on ice 2013 judge Jason Gardiner has said he will never be friends again with Karen Barber.

The pair are back on the panel this year and have continued their war of words with one another both on and off the show.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's final Jason said: "We tolerate each other and that’s probably as good as it’s going to get.

"We didn’t speak before this series started – the first time we saw each other was literally at the press conference. As you can imagine, it was quite awkward.”

He added: "It’s best to just stay clear. There’s no desire from either party to hang out and be friends. We’re just not each other’s cup of tea.”

That while Jason is no fan of Karen's he is happy with this year's new judge, Ashley Roberts.

He said of the Pussycat Doll singer: "I thought it was a stroke of genius to get Ashley on board.

"I’ve always felt like the lone voice in the dark trying to fly the flag for performance and choreography. Ashley and I look for the same things.”

This weekend the Dancing On Ice 2013 final will see Beth Tweddle Matt Lapinskas and Luke Campbell go head-to-head as one of them is crowned champion.
