Dominic Cork wants to ''smack'' 'Dancing On Ice' judge Jason Gardner over his harsh comments and doesn't understand why Emma Bunton is on the panel
Dominic Cork wants to "smack" 'Dancing On Ice' judge Jason Gardiner.
The 39-year-old former cricketer - who was voted off the show on Sunday (31.01.11) - is furious at the panellist's comments after he was described as "gangly" and "not improving".
He said: "Of course it hurts - you are only human. You have got feelings inside.
"People deal with it in their own way. You try to smile and laugh, but inside you are thinking, 'I would love to see you round the back and give you a smack'. But his car is right outside the door with about 18 bodyguards.
"I think sometimes he has to remember that this show is not about Jason Gardiner, it's about all the work people put in.
"He turns up on a Sunday, that's all he does. What he doesn't see is all the hard work people put in throughout the week."
Angry Dominic - who was partnered on the programme by professional skater Alexandra Schauman - also took a swipe at judge Emma Bunton, insisting former skating champion Robin Cousins is the only one whose opinion counts.
He added: "Emma said to me, 'What are you doing here?'. I would ask her the same question, 'What are you doing here?'.
"She is supposed to be the judge - either say something bad or say something good."
