Jason Gardiner will never like Karen Barber, he loves Ashley Roberts though…

Jason Gardiner has admitted that there is no chance of him ever finding common ground and making piece with Karen Barber. The Dancing On Ice judge famously fell out with the ice skating champion two years ago, when they had a fiery altercation on a live episode of the ITV show, during which he belittled her in front of millions of viewers.

Gardiner does like the star producers chose to sit between them and he's become quite fond of Dancing On Ice buffer Ashley Roberts of late. The Pussycat Dolls star was a new addition to the panel for the latest series and Jason feels like he finally has a friend on the show, because she comes from a similar dance background as him. He explained:
"I thought it was a stroke of genius to get Ashley Roberts on board. I've always felt like the lone voice in the dark trying to fly the flag for performance and choreography. Ashley and I look for the same things."
Jason only has one more week of sitting at the same desk as Karen and then it will all be over for another year. The series wraps this Sunday night when Matt Lapinskas, Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell go head to head in the finale, when they will all perform twice before two are chosen to showcase their new Bolero routine, and a winner is chosen.
