Gemma Collins says she hopes there will be less 'body shaming' from the Dancing On Ice judges this week.

Gemma made a subtle dig at the panel's comments following her row with Jason Gardiner in last Sunday's show.

For the musicals special, Gemma perform to Diamonds Are A Girl's best Friend from Gentleman Prefer Blondes.

The routine saw her place bottom of the scoreboard, receiving just 13 points.

During the judges' comments, Gemma and Jason got involved in a nasty on air row as he told her: "You were more like Anna Nicole Smith – there was no elegance, you were all over the place, there wasn't enough skating, we're not going to see lifts from you."

Despite the low marks, Gemma made it through to this Sunday's show where she is hoping to prove the panel wrong.

Appearing at the National Television Awards this week, Gemma told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "This week I've got to let my feet do the talking. To be honest, I do agree with the judges' comments."

However, she added: "Less of the body-shaming though, please!

"I might be a big girl but that doesn't mean I can't leave the house."

Alongside Gemma, those still on the Dancing On Ice 2019 line up this year include Coronation Street actress Jane Danson, Loose Women’s Saira Khan, X Factor favourite Saara Aaalto, Grease legend Didi Conn and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton.

Completing this year's line up were cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, Love Island’s Wes Nelson, Strictly Come Dancing dancer James Jordan and singer and presenter Brian McFadden.

As it stands, James and Wes find themselves fighting for favouritism.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for bookies BoyleSports commented: “Things are really starting to heat up in the Dancing On Ice betting with James Jordan now feeling the pressure from Wes Nelson as very little separates them at present.”

Dancing On Ice 2019 continues this Sunday night on ITV from 6PM.
