James "Arg" Argent has slammed Jason Gardiner for slating Gemma Collins.

In a new interview, the "Dancing On Ice" judge branded contestant Gemma "lazy and mediocre" amid claims she has been a diva behind the scenes but Gemma's boyfriend Arg has taken to Twitter to furiously blast Jason for his comments.

He tweeted: "Selling stories and lies for money and publicity. Your supposed to be judging the routine & giving your opinion. Not slating a contestant who you've only just met. You haven't given her a chance! It's disgusting & unprofessional. She's worked so hard & tried. What's your problem?"

In an interview with The Sun, Jason lashed out at Gemma, calling her "lazy" and urged her to take the show more seriously.

He said: "If you really want people to see a different side of you, this is a great opportunity to do that, rather than saying, "This is too uncomfortable for me, I'm not the star attraction any more, I'm bored" then quit.

"She is just insecure and using an act to hide that. If she could back it up I'd say she was fabulous, but what worries me is she's a role model to some young people.

"So I'd say to Gemma, if you really do care about being a role model, and you understand the power and the privilege of the ­platform that has been afforded to you, then don't quit Dancing On Ice.
