Chris Fountain in row with Jason Gardiner

Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner reckons Chris Fountain doesn’t deserve to win tomorrow night’s final.

The controversial panelist suggests the Hollyoaks actor, 20, had a head start because he used to be a semi-professional ice-hockey player.

‘Chris has an unfair advantage,’ he insists. ‘He was able to skate from the start. He doesn’t have the same fears to overcome.’

But Chris hit back at a press conference yesterday.

‘I don’t feel like I’ve pushed myself less than anybody else,’ he argued. ‘When I auditioned, they wouldn’t have let me in if they thought I skated too well. What do you think?!’
