Loose Woman Denise Welch bowed out of Dancing On Ice last night, but the real story of the evening occurred when her husband mounted the stage and told Jason Gardiner exactly what he thought of the judge’s stinging criticisms of his beloved. He later apologised to the large group of people backstage for skipping the queue that has been growing steadily since January..
The Australian farmer – who has already been rushed by one of the skating coaches this series – told Welch that she looked more like a person playing Twister, than an ice dancer after her performance last night, but he hadn’t bargained on her husband Tim Healey. The actor, who is currently starring as a transvestite in ITV comedy Benidorm, took to the stage and told Gardiner that his wife was 52 (she probably thanked him for that later..) and that she had four jobs. Gardiner simply responded by advising the actor to sort out his halitosis. Jason later claimed Healy’s breath smelled of “stale p*** and alcohol”. He wrote on Twitter: “At least I have oral hygiene. Is it too much to ask for him to clean his teeth?”
