Jason's on thin ice

Jason Gardiner, the orange-hued judge of Dancing on Ice fame has previously brought skaters to the point of tears; only last year, he described Sharron Davies as 'faecal matter'. But this time, apparently, he has gone too far, after bullying former judge Karen Barber, prompting 2000 idiots to phone Ofcom to complain. When it gets to the Ofcom stage, you know that a TV judge is in a perilous position...

Jason told The Sun that DoI bosses were currently discussing his fate, 'They're talking about it. I don't know what they will do. I can't do anything about it. If I'm honest, I'm always surprised I get invited back every year'. Meanie Jason made Karen cry on Sunday night, when he told her, 'If your opinion still mattered you'd be on the panel.'

Philip Schofield added his tuppenceworth to the furore, while presenting ITV's This Morning, saying, 'I thought she was packing a punch. I thought she was going to backhand him! Jason makes me laugh, even when he's bad. But he had more than a foot over the line last night. Karen's role is important. She works with the skaters all week. I've not got to the bottom of why they genuinely can't stand each other.'
