"Don't sell stories on me!"
Gemma Collins left everyone shell-shocked when she went on a rampage at a Dancing on Ice judge during last night’s live show.
The reality star accused judge Jason Gardiner of selling stories about her to the media after he criticised her performance.
Jason said Gemma had been channelling Anna Nicole Smith as opposed to Marilyn Monroe, which she had been aiming for, saying there was “no elegance” in her routine.
In an interview with The Sun last week, Jason branded Gemma “lazy” and “mediocre” and claimed she is not working hard enough in the competition, just days after Holly Willoughby also questioned her professionalism.
Critiquing her performance last night, Jason said: “This is your second skate now. You need to up the ante. We’re not going to see big lifts from you. We’re not going to get any impressive moves.”
However, before he could continue, Gemma interjected, saying: “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, telling her: “This doesn’t help your cause. It shows you’re just a brat. Listen to what we’re saying.”
Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield then interrupted and suggested they get back to discussing skating.
Viewers were shook by Gemma’s outburst, taking to Twitter to discuss last night’s events.
Well said Gemma Collins. You truly put Jason Gardiner in his low place. I think you put an excellent effort in and the public love to see you. Pholly were way too smug and i think bordering on bullying with their sly comments and smirks!! #dancing on ice
