Ashley Roberts thinks Jason Gardiner has "no filter".
The former Pussycat Dolls singer sits alongside Jason, Robin Cousins and Karen Barber on the judging panel for ITV's 'Dancing On Ice' and admitted she sometimes struggles to comprehend the choice of words he uses when giving critical feedback to the contestants.
Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on 'This Morning' today (29.01.13), she said: "I think everybody [can't believe Jason]! He has no filter - not one at all! But that's Jason and that's his opinion, so ..."
Ashley sits in between outspoken Jason and Karen and senses a lot of "tension" between the pair when they disagree on certain things.
She continued: "They definitely have different opinions! Or different ways of communicating their opinion ... sometimes I feel there's a lot of tension either side. And Karen did throw out a little hand gesture the other night, and I was like, 'Uh oh!... Here we go!' "
The blonde beauty also revealed she thinks 'Coronation Street' star Samia Ghadie and her partner Sylvain Longchambon are among the frontrunners to win the competition, but insists it's still too early to know for sure.
She said: "There are some solid people. Samia really stepped up on Sunday (27.01.13) and Gareth [Thomas] is really strong on the ice, Beth [Tweddle] is really strong ... but as far as performance, I would like to see them crack open a little bit more - not physically, but performance-wise.
"But it's still early on ... so you just don't know who will step up."
