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."
