Feb 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Dancing on Ice producers are apparently in discussions as to whether or not they should fire Jason Gardiner from the show. Gardiner admitted to the possibility to The Sun, and stated that he would understand if they chose to do so.

Almost three thousand viewers have launched their complaints to ITV about the words which were exchanged between Karen Barber, who is the head coach and former judge, and Gardiner on the show this past Sunday night. Gardiner became aggravated at Karen during the show when she seemed to be consistently criticizing one of the other contestants, Johnson Beharry. Gardiner snapped at Karen, “If your opinion still mattered, Karen, you would still be on the judging panel.”

Although Karen confronted Gardiner on the remark, while on air, she was said to have rushed out of the studio crying during the commercial break. Gardiner says he understands if they choose to fire him. “I don’t know what [the producers] will do,” he said. “I can’t do anything about it. If I’m honest, I’m always surprised I get invited back every year.”
