Judge Ashley Roberts made herself clear that she doesn’t want the position of “Mr Nasty” Jason Gardiner in the Dancing on Ice panel and also said that as far as she’s concerned she has no problem with the fact that Samia and Sylvian are supposed to have a relationship.
There was a rumour going around that the former Pussycat Dolls was criticising the alleged couple, because they both broke-up with their former partners over Christmas in order to be together. She told The Sun at that time: I’m not here to judge her personal life – but I’d never even like a person who was with someone else. The answer will always be no. It’s just not right. You want somebody who’s going to be with you and for the right reasons. Otherwise what are you building? What’s the foundation for that relationship?
But Ashley wants everyone to know that those comments we’re twisted and interpreted wrong by the paper, and stated that she’s doesn’t mind with what is going on between the two. She told in an interview for Digital Spy: I don’t have a problem with anybody on the panel or anybody within the crew. It’s a really fun place to go and work at. My words have been twisted around. Whatever’s happening in people’s personal life, that’s their own stuff. I’m just there to do my job.
Ashley has been judging dance competitions since her teen years and she has been fair and honest in her feedback on Dancing on Ice, but she doesn’t want to be considered “The Bad Guy” : Oh my God, no! I hope I don’t replace him because I don’t want to be a bad guy. I’m just giving my critique and I care a lot about the performance side of things.
