Matt Evers slams Twitter troll

Share article:

Matt Evers has urged a Twitter troll to seek "professional help" after they slammed Gemma Collins.

The 42-year-old skater has jumped to the defence of his "Dancing on Ice" partner after a social media user accused the "Only Way is Essex" star of ruining the show with her "attention seeking" antics.

The viewer posted: "I've been an avid fan from series 1 and I honestly can't stand this series due to her! All the judges are pathetic molly coddling the self centered attention seeker! Ruined a perfectly good show for me!"

Matt replied on his own Twitter account, writing: "Honestly, if our 1 minute and 30 sec performance ruins an entire 2 hour show.... you need professional help. The viewing figures don't agree with any of the haters.(sic)"

And Matt also defended Gemma against accusations that she "can't skate", sharing a clip of her from the weekend's show and highlighting the fact she successfully executed some inside three turns, a figure skating step that involves both a change of direction and change of edge and is found on the sixth level of Skate UK's eight-level basic skills programme.

He captioned the clip: "Last time I checked... "ice skating". These are actually called inside three 3 turns.

"Who ever says @missgemcollins "can't skate"... she can."

But when a critical user pointed out Gemma was "holding on" to her partner and not skating alone, Matt hit back once again.

He wrote: "Please do your research and watch week 1, 3 and 4... she does plenty of skating on her own. Believe me, I know. I choreographed her."

Responding to another critic, he added: "I am hired to skate with them. WITH THEM. How often do @torvillanddean separate in a routine?

"How much of a ballroom dance are the dancers separated? Have you ever watched actual ice dancing? Google is amazing. Please educate yourself about the show before you hate. Thank you."
