Eliminated Dancing On Ice 2011 contestant Dominic Cork is clearly still feeling a little raw after Sunday's results show, today hitting out at the Ice panel - with harsh words for both Emma Button and Jason Gardiner. Criticising both of the pair for their judging skills, Cork said it was only Robin Cousins' opinion he paid attention to.

Following his exit from the show, in which Jason Gardiner dubbed the cricketer “gangly”, Cork told The Mirror: “Of course it hurts – you are only human. You have got feelings inside.

“People deal with it in their own way. You try to smile and laugh, but inside you are thinking, ‘I would love to see you round the back and give you a smack’."

He joked: "But his car is right outside the door with about 18 bodyguards!”

Cork's harshest words were reserved for former Spice Girl Emma Button, he said: "Emma said to me, ‘What are you doing here?’. I would ask her the same question, ‘What are you doing here?’.

“She is supposed to be the judge – either say something bad or say something good.”
