Gemma Collins pulls out of Dancing On Ice final after Jason Gardiner insults her again

GEMMA Collins has pulled out of the Dancing On Ice final.

The show favourite won’t return to skate again with her professional partner Matt Evers despite looking forward to a final spin on the ice this Sunday.

A source close to Gemma exclusively tells The Sun Online: “Gemma is devastated, there’s only so much she can take and Jason has bullied her for months – she’s laughed it off and tried to rise above it but enough is enough – Dancing On Ice bosses should not be allowing it to carry on.”

Gemma pulled in an extra 3 million viewers for the show but they all switched off when she was voted off the ice.

The Towie star was expected to skate in the final alongside finalists Wes Nelson, James Jordan and Saara Aalto

Taking to Twitter, Gemma said: “Thank you Matt such a shame I was looking forward to Sunday x I tried my best week after week.”

Matt added: “There is no room for bullying in my world. None.”

Earlier today, Gemma hit back at ‘bully’ Jason Gardiner after he reignited their feud with by saying she looks like a ‘refrigerator on the ice’.

The Towie star was set to return to Dancing on Ice this weekend for the final, but hinted that she might quit the show after Mr Nasty seemed less than keen about coming face-to-face with his nemesis.

Appearing on This Morning, Phillip Schofield asked Jason about The GC coming back for the final.

“Who? I thought that was a refrigerator,” he sniped.

“But she said you were friends,” Phil probed.

“She said it,” Jason responded, “I don’t hold a grudge, I don’t really know the woman at all.”

Taking to Instagram after reading Jason’s comments Gemma ranted that “enough is enough”.

“I’m really tired of being BULLIED by this man… I wish you would stop… it’s very very upsetting and hurtful let it go Jason stop bullying me ENOUGH is ENOUGH,” she wrote.

“I won’t be bullied any more making me feel uncomfortable to come back to the final on Sunday! I was looking forward to Sunday but won’t be anywhere near someone who’s BULLYING me… this is NOT ACCEPTABLE on any level.”

Gemma and Jason had a massive falling out when she told him to “shut up” as he branded her a ‘brat’ on Dancing On Ice in January.

The Towie star received the lowest score of the series so far and was slammed by Mr Nasty – which led her to hitting back and starting a furious on air row.

In an interview with The Sun, Jason branded her “lazy” and “mediocre” and claimed she is not working hard enough in the competition, just days after Holly Willoughby also questioned her professionalism.

Jason gave his verdict and told her she needed to improve in a scathing critique, he said: “I know you were channelling Marilyn Monroe… There wasn’t any elegance like you were saying in the VT. She has to be elegant. She is a woman in control of her femininity. You were all over the place hun.”

However, before he could continue, she interjected and fumed: “Can I just say one thing? Maybe if you didn’t sell stories on me, I wouldn’t have been so upset this week. So take that! Boring, boring! Don’t sell stories on me.”

When he tried to argue back she told him to “shut up” and started shouting that he was “boring.”

However, Jason fought back more telling the television personality: “This doesn’t help your cause. It shows you’re just a brat. Listen to what we’re saying.”

And it was up to host Phillip Schofield to jump in to stop it from getting “completely out of hand”, quickly handing it over to Jayne to give her comments.

The GC was accused of leaving a show early because she was “bored” and had kept her fellow cast mates waiting at rehearsals while she “napped”.

This led Dancing on Ice hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to question Gemma’s “professionalism” on This Morning, a move which upset the Towie star.

The criticism kept on coming as in an interview with The Sun, judge Jason blasted her saying: “I can always see who’s lazy. Gemma is lazy. She doesn’t look like her heart is in it at all.”

Jason also labelled Gemma “insecure” and urged her to stop complaining and start rehearsing as he worried she is a bad role model for young people.
