Matt Evers and Jason Gardiner don’t speak during ‘Dancing On Ice’

Matt Evers hasn’t spoken to Jason Gardiner in 11 years.
Despite the 42-year-old professional skater working with the judge for 11 years on ‘Dancing On Ice’, he admitted that the Jason, 47, "keeps to himself" and the pair "don’t really talk" during the competition.
Asked ‘Heart Breakfast with Jamie & Lucy’ whether Jason was as nasty as he comes across on screen, Matt said: "I don’t really talk to him in the studio. No, he keeps to himself. I’ve worked with him now for 11 TV series and known Jason for 13 years now and never once really have spoken to him outside of work."
And when he was quizzed about which other judges he spoke to, and the skater slyly replied: "All of them… Can you read between the lines?"
The star went on to explain that the pair don’t "send each other Christmas cards", and that tension arose when there was speculation Matt was romantically linked to his partner at the time, Pamela Anderson.
He said: "When I skated with Pamela Anderson a couple of years back and there were rumours in the press that her and I were sleeping together, which was not the case. Hello… I wish.
"But he kinda outed me a little bit, oh he was like ‘I don’t think Matt would go for that one’ and I just kinda went, ‘that’s not cool dude.’ "
Matt’s current skating partner, Gemma Collins, has also previously taken digs at the Jason saying he "can’t actually skate".
She recently said: "I find him highly amusing. I really like him, yes he’s definitely going to say stuff about me and Jason Gardiner can’t actually skate.
"Jason can have all the chat, but he can’t back it up with the actions."
