As the Jason Gardiner / Tim Healy / Denise Welch breath-gate saga continues, it looks like it could be a while before Mr Gardiner is able to put his comments behind him… Tim Healy wants to take part in next year’s Dancing on Ice.

On Sunday night, fans saw Tim storm the stage to defend his wife Denise as Jason Gardiner likened her skating to a “game of Twister.”

Not highly offensive, but the comment was obviously enough to push Tim over the edge and subsequently he ‘got in Jason’s face’ to tell him “she’s 52 and has four jobs.”

Jason looked bemused but angered fans as he criticised the Geordie actor’s breath.

Denise has now spoken out about the judge’s comments branding him a “coward and a hypocrite.”

She told TV Biz: "It's a terrible thing to say, not funny and not clever.

"He could have responded saying, 'I thought he was going to deck me', or something like that, so to respond in such a nasty way is just childish."

Now it seems Tim, who plays a transvestite in comedy Benidorm, is keen to get his own back by appearing on the next series of the show.

Denise said: "Tim wants to come on next year's show as Lesley the transvestite. Just to p*** Jason right off!"
