Dancing On Ice 2014: Where's Robin Cousins? Nicky Slater returns!

Nicky Slater

Robin Cousins is set to be missing from the Dancing On Ice 2014 panel tonight and here's just where he's disappeared off to!

The head judge has flown out to Russia this week to cover the Winter Olympics leaving a gap on the panel both tonight and next Sunday evening.

Former Dancing On Ice judge Nicky Slater, who appeared alongside Robin since the the first series until 2010, will return to replace him.

Since leaving the show, former competitive skater Nicky has continued to judge on the DOI live tour alongside Robin but has more recently been focused on working as both a musician and music producer.

However Nicky won't be the head judge with Karen Barber - Nicky's previous professional skating partner - getting that responsibility.

It'll mean she has the final say on all decisions such as who to send home in the skate off if the four piece cannot all agree.

It's a decision that apparently angered Jason Gardiner, with a source telling The Sun newspaper: “Jason is fuming about Karen’s promotion. He thinks Karen only got the gig because of her relationship with Christopher.”

However it's a story that Jason was quick to deny on Twitter writing quite a response to the show's press team.

“For those having a go at me for a fabricated story by @itvpresscentre about #DOI Head judge bulls**t email [redacted]. Its his story,” Jason complained.

Dancing On Ice begins tonight at 6:15PM on ITV.
