Dancing On Ice viewers have criticised Jason Gardiner for making a “nasty” comment towards Gemma Collins minutes before she was eliminated.
Gemma and her professional skating partner Matt Evers were voted off the competition on Sunday night after finding themselves in the bottom two with Ryan Sidebottom and his partner Brandee Malto.
As viewers know, Gemma and Jason didn’t see eye-to-eye during her time on the show after she accused him of “selling stories” about her and he branded her a “brat”.

And it seems, even though they’re both now parting ways, Jason couldn’t help but make a final dig at the former TOWIE star.
As the panel decided who they wanted to send home, Jason said: “It is very easy for me to say this. And it gives me great pleasure to say I will be saving Ryan and Brandee.”
However, viewers weren’t happy with his remark and called him out on Twitter.
One person said: “The final comment by Jason to @missgemcollins was unprofessional at best and downright nasty at worst! Regardless of the spat a few weeks back, she was by far the better person this evening!

Another wrote: “No need for Jason to be nasty when sending Gemma home tonight,” while a third tweeted: “I really don’t think Jason needed to be so nasty with his comments and vote. That was unnecessary.”

It comes after Gemma failed to impress the judges with her routine to Destiny’s Child’s I’m a Survivor earlier in the evening. She received 15.5 points out of 40.
Later during the skate-off, Gemma skated to Whitney Houston’s Queen of the Night.
After being sent home, Gemma said: “I’ve had fun and I’m a bit intuitional and I did say tonight’s my night, I just want to bow out gracefully now.”
After their elimination, Matt took to Instagram to praise Gemma for her efforts.
He said: “Well done @gemmacollins1 you did your best and worked your ass off this week! That’s all that matters!”
Many fans agreed with Matt with one person commenting: “You did amazing job,” while another wrote: “You guys did great tonight! So sad to see you go Gemma but you did us proud!”
