HomeEntertainmentDancing on Ice 2012: Gardiner and Bunton exits show

Jason Gardiner and Emma Bunton will NOT be apart of the next series of Dancing on Ice

Confirming his exit on Twitter, Jason said: “I will NOT be returning to #DOI next series. It has been an iconic 6 years & I’ve loved being a part of it.”

The former Spice Girl, who joined the show in 2010, wants to concentrate on other projects, including her children’s clothing range and her breakfast radio show on Heart FM.

“I loved working on Dancing On Ice, it was so much fun and I love the team,” said Emma.

“I made this decision as I have to prioritise all the exciting projects lined up for me next year, as well as my Heart FM radio show, and juggle these with being a busy mum.

“I wish everyone on the show the best of luck.”

Christine Bleakley was recently named the new host of the show; replacing Holly Willoughby who will host The Voice UK on BBC1 from Spring 2012.
