My job on the show is to judge the skaters, says a defiant Jason Gardiner

Jason Gardiner

Defiant Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner has once again defended his rude and harsh criticism of the show's skaters by saying he is paid to be a judge. Despite his controversial statements, Jason defended his actions by arguing that if they were that bad he would've been sacked from the show.

Jason told TV Times magazine: "The panel has had quite a culling this year and I survived, so if my bosses weren't happy and the public wasn't impressed I wouldn't be here.

"I must be doing something right."

He continued: "If everybody is talking about the show because of what I'm saying, that's a bonus.

"I'm not there to please anybody or to sugar-coat anything - I'm there as a judge."

Yesterday Jason was forced to defend his vote to save Kerry Katona at the weekend, calling complaints "laughable."
