Gemma Collins 'working hard' to prove herself on Dancing On Ice

Share article:

Gemma Collins has been "working really hard" in training for "Dancing On Ice" this week, as she's determined to "show everyone what she's made of".

The 37-year-old reality star has been causing a stir on the ITV ice dancing competition with her "diva" antics - which have seen her blasted for being unprofessional, and accuse judge Jason Gardiner of "selling stories" about her live on the show last week - but she's now said to be putting extra training hours in, in order to up her skill level and prove her abilities to the judging panel.

Associate Creative Director Daniel Whiston - who was formerly a professional skater on the show before being promoted for this year's series - said: "Gemma has been working really hard this week, putting in the training hours and really concentrating on improving her skating skills and learning her routine. I think she wants to go out and show everyone what she's made of, and put on the best performance she can."

But despite Gemma's increased efforts to impress the judges, Daniel says she and Jason may still clash when the show returns on Sunday (27.01.19).

He added to The Sun Online: "I have no idea what will happen this coming weekend and whether Gemma and Jason will continue to lock horns.

"A friend of mine recently told me a saying that "arguing is the Olympics of talking", so I guess if they do continue to clash, they might both win a medal this week."

Meanwhile, Jason is believed to be planning to take legal action against Gemma after she accused him of selling stories about her and also branded him "boring".
