Former Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner is now living in a tent after turning his back on the ‘toxic’ TV world.
Jason, who was axed by the popular ITV1 show, is now building sustainable housing for refugees.
Birmingham Live reports that he said: “I have found a new life that isn’t about the toxic environment of the TV industry.
“My tenure on Dancing On Ice was always marred with controversy and lots of issues but the problem is, I didn’t realise how toxic it was until I left.
“It took me a while to decompress from it, I’ll be honest.”
John Barrowman will not be returning to the judging panel for Dancing On Ice 2022. He had replaced Jason Gardiner in 2018 when Gardiner bowed out.
Jason concluded: “The minute she took me there something happened. I don’t know what it was but I just got the excitement back in my life.
“I would wake at 6am every morning and I wouldn’t leave the allotment ‘til eight-nine o’clock at night. I did that seven days a week.”
