Gardiner: DOI bosses support me
Jason Gardiner thinks it's "a shame" Denise Welch is upset over comments he made about her husband on Dancing On Ice.
Loose Women star Denise, who was booted out of the competition on Sunday, said she could never forgive Jason for saying her husband, Benidorm star Tim Healy, had bad breath.
But Jason, who made the comments after Tim stormed the stage while he was judging Denise, was unrepentant, saying: "I think it's a shame if she's taking it that seriously, let's not forget that her husband did storm the set and got in my face while I was doing my job."
He added that show bosses had had "discussions" with him, but that they were happy with his acerbic manner.
"We've had discussions because obviously sometimes I do go close to the line and there's been a lot of complaints launched with Ofcom because that seems to be on speed dial on people's mobile phones these days, but ultimately they have been very supportive and they understand. I'm employed to do what I do," he said.
