James Argent is looking forward to "Dancing On Ice" being over.

The former "TOWIE" star's partner Gemma Collins is currently competing on the ITV celebrity skating competition, and while he's proud of her journey on the show, he admitted it will be a relief when she is out of the spotlight.

Opening up on the last few weeks, Arg told "Loose Women": "It has been difficult. "Dancing On Ice", I love the show and Gemma has been fantastic. But I'm not gonna lie, when it ends it's going to be a nice feeling.

"It's been a lot of pressure, a lot of stress on Gemma, it's all eyes on Gemma. We've had some amazing moments where she's done an amazing routine, and then it's GC fever where the whole country is behind her. But then you've had other moments where she's had a hard time from Jason, she's had stories in the press."

Gemma has sparked controversy during her time on the show, from claims of diva behaviour to on-screen rows with judge Jason Gardiner.

The reality star recently hit back at the dance expert and accused him of "selling stories" on her - which he has denied - and her man admitted it became awkward to watch.

He added: "At the start I was like, "yes, go on Gemma, give it back to him!" But then I was like, "Right stop, enough, you've said your bit so please stop." "

Meanwhile, James - who revealed the door is still open for a return to "The Only Way Is Essex" - joked that Gemma could do with less publicity.

Responding to suggestions her recent painful fall on the ice was a stunt to get sympathy, he laughed off the idea.

He said: "Lemme put something straight. Gemma - as much as I love her I don't want to gas her up too much - is probably the most talked about woman in the country at the moment.

"She smashed it every week, and she had the row a week before. She's not going to risk injury - potentially smashing her teeth to pieces on the floor - for a publicity stunt. She's the last person that needs publicity at the moment. If anything, she could do with a bit less."
