So Dancing On Ice is back with a new series and a new judge, with Jason Gardiner making way for John Barrowman.
He’s joined Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean… and quickly made his presence known, jumping with Ashley as he made his entrance.
And, while the former competitor on DOI is known for his fun personality, he made it clear he means business with his judgments.
In fact, he was showing signs of being more than a little ‘Jason’ when he awarded Perri Kiely just 6.5, while the other three more experienced judges gave him 7.
But what are viewers making of him so far?
First, some of the positive comments on Twitter…
“So happy to have him back on my tv for the next 3 months!” said one.
