Jason Gardiner has apparently told friends that he has "no regrets" over his on-air argument with Karen Barber, which saw him come close to losing his job. The £100,000-a-year judge came under fire for the spat, in which he quipped that 'Head Coach' Karen's opinion didn't matter anymore now she was no longer a judge.
Despite apologising for the comments both on the show and after the show in the press, a source close to the judge revealed: “He made his apology but he has no real regrets over what happened."
Talking to The Mirror, the insider continued: "He just wants to get on with doing what he is paid for, which is giving constructive criticism of the skaters, and not sugar-coating things and saying they are nice."
He added: “He won’t be contacting Karen before the show on Sunday night.”
Yesterday show host Phillip Schofield hit out at the people complaining about Jason Gardiner's comments, calling the situation "crazy".
