Sam Attwater needs to be as brave as the girls, claims Jason Gardiner

Sam Attwater

Dancing On Ice 2011 judge Jason Gardiner has said that current favourite Sam Attwater needs to follow the likes of Laura Hamilton's lead and be a bit more brave in his routines. Gardiner's comments come after Sam, who used to continually top the leader board, slide to third place between Chloe and Laura on Sunday's show.

Following his performance, coach Jayne Torvill let slip that Sam and professional skating partner Brianne Delcourt had axed a risky move from their routine. Jason criticised the pair for backing out of the dangerous move, but Sam was adamant that the pair wouldn't have been able to pull it off.

"Maybe Sam hasn't got the same level of courage or determination," Jason told The Sun. "These girls are going for it, putting themselves into death-defying situations.

"Sam needs to get a bit of their courage and bravery."
