Dancing On Ice return! Jason Gardiner 'in talks' to make a comeback


Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner is in talks to make a comeback with the show.

Dancing On Ice last aired on ITV in 2014 but rumour has it that ITV are looking at a revival.

And the show's 'Mr Nasty' judge Jason is supposedly already in talks to return to the panel.

“Jason Gardiner was the most popular judge by far and so he’s already in talks to come back," a source claimed today. “It wouldn’t be the same without Jason and so they’re determined to get him back on the panel as viewers absolutely love him."


The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "Producers have also had discussions with the other judges as they’re keen to get them all on board.”

The Sun previously reported that ITV boss Kevin Lygo had the celebrity ice skating series on the "hitlist for 2017".

“It was a smash hit, and even at its worst was still pulling in more [viewers] than some of the shows currently on telly – particularly in the Sunday night slot," a source explained. “It’s very early days and nothing has been commissioned just yet but it’s definitely on the to-do list."

Alongside Jason, it's been said that show coaches and creative directors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, who won gold in the 1984 Winter Olympics, are also in talks to reprise their roles.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Jayne and Chris were a huge part of Dancing On Ice’s original success – it wouldn’t be the same without them.”

Jayne recently appeared to let slip the news, saying: "I love that [Dancing On Ice] is coming back, it’s great news. I’m really looking forward to it.


"The show will definitely be refreshed but the basics will be the same, we will still be teaching celebrities how to skate.

"It was a different sort of platform being in the studio. We like to be creative and come up with new things. There’s a new bar to set when the show returns."

However as yet ITV have not officially confirmed a new series.
