Dancing On Ice re-airs infamous Gemma Collins and Jason Gardiner showdown

Dancing On Ice fans were treated to a special one-off episode, The Greatest Show on Ice, about the series’ best moments on Sunday night.

The latest live show had to be axed by ITV, after a series of early exits and injuries.

With so many contestants taking time out and injured, and others isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic, ITV pulled the plug on the latest show.

Instead of having Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield hosting the series at the rink, a show looking back at past moments was aired.

There was one moment many viewers were waiting for too – the explosive on-air row between former judge Jason Gardiner and Gemma Collins back in 2019.

After awkward comments about her performances each week, Gemma finally hit back during one show after he appeared to body shame her.

She accused him of selling stories on her to the press, before shouting at him and calling him out on air.

The moment was one of the most explosive and most talked about scenes on the show ever.

So when a best bits show was confirmed, many viewers were just waiting for the moment in particular to air.

It did not disappoint when some of the scenes were shown, followed by the moment she took quite the tumble on the ice a week after.

Holly called it her “favourite moment ever”, as viewers praised the star for laughing it off and getting back up and carrying on on the night.

Another agreed: “Classic moment.”

A third added: “Whatever you may think of the Queen Gemma Collins, there is absolutely no denying that she gave us the most iconic television moments of all time.”

Dancing On Ice 2021 returns next Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
