Gemma Collins has been branded 'lazy' and 'mediocre' by a Dancing on Ice judge

It's been a tough week for the GC after she landed herself in a spat with Kem Cetinay and Holly Willoughby, who called the TOWIE star 'unprofessional'.

And now Gemma has landed herself in hot water with Dancing on Ice judge, Jason Gardiner, who reckons she's just 'mediocre' and 'lazy'.

“Gemma is lazy. She doesn’t look like her heart is in it at all.", Jason, 47, told The Sun.

“I do despair at the state of the entertainment industry - we celebrate mediocre."


He went on to describe Gemma's performance as extremely uncomfortable - especially considering she had previously boasted that she was better than Beyoncé.

“I heard the hype from her own mouth, how amazing she is and she’s better than Beyoncé.

“But she did one of the most painful routines I’ve ever had to sit through."

Jason did offer one piece of advice for the GC going forward into the next round of Dancing on Ice:

“Quit the BS and just apply yourself. I don’t want to watch a circus."

"People are going to see the real bare, stripped-back me. I might just become Bear Grylls, you never know."We never did get to see Gemma chowing down on a raw snake, drinking her own urine or sleeping inside a rancid camel (yep, Bear Grylls has seriously done all of those things).

"Yeah alright, I've cracked at the first hurdle. It's like the turtle and the slug or the horse and the rabbit or something, I can't remember what it is."Who could forget the age-old story of the turtle and the slug?

"If they don’t give us a treat I’m going to kill myself.”Well, the suicide threats didn’t work, but outside of the jungle is a plentiful world of treats just waiting for Gem.

"I've never been in a shower which takes so much hard work but you've just got to roll with it, like Oasis said."

"I feel like I’ve got malaria. My poo is bright fluorescent yellow, we’ve got to get out of here today.”Symptoms of malaria do not include yellow poo, constant whinging or an Essex accent, sorry Gem.

"Seriously, I'd give anything for a bit of dried fruit. Dried fruit! I'm not even asking for a ham sandwich. You know what I mean? With a packet of Quavers on the side."We’re not sure dried fruit is the best remedy for fluorescent yellow diarrhea Gem, maybe just stick to dry bread and water until the ‘malaria’ clears up.

"People that murder get treated better than this, and that's the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."Murderers also don’t get paid at least £25,000 to go on a jolly holiday to Australia either. They also tend not to have strops and quit their sentences, but who cares about the details….

"If I'm not in that camp in three minutes, I'm quitting."That’s what the helicopter was for, Gem.
