'Dancing On Ice' judge Jason Gardiner blames Elen Rivas' ''arrogance'' as the cause of her early exit from the ITV1 show on Sunday (16.01.11)
'Dancing On Ice' judge Jason Gardiner thinks Elen Rivas' bad attitude was the cause of her early exit from the show.
The Spanish model - who was eliminated from the ITV1 reality series on Sunday night (16.01.11) alongside former 'Neighbours' actor Craig McLachlan - was seen telling skating champions Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean she wasn't happy with her routine.
However, famously sharp-tongued Jason thinks the "arrogance" she demonstrated on the show was the cause of her quick departure.
He explained: "Elen wasn't the worst skater but she didn't do herself any favours with her attitude. From her video she came over as arrogant. You don't question Torvill and Dean! They know what they're doing."
Meanwhile, Jason tipped Chloe Madeley - the daughter of TV presenting legends Richard and Judy - to go all the way in the competition.
He told The Sun newspaper: "Chloe was the biggest surprise. She did a lot of technically advanced moves that impressed me. Her biggest obstacle is her confidence, but if she continues to perform like that, she may be a front-runner."
