Dancing On Ice judge Ashley Roberts has insisted that she is in no way wanting to take Jason Gardiner's 'Mr Nasty' spot on the panel and has also spoken out about her having no problem with DOI contestant Samia Ghadie and Sylvain Longchambon's alleged romance.
The blonde beauty was reported to have criticised the couple recently, after it was claimed that they both dumped their respective partners over Christmas, so they could embark on a new romance.
At the time Ashley told The Sun: "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?"
However, Ashley has insisted that her comments were twisted and mis-reported by the paper and claimed that she has no problem with the Coronation Street actress and her French DOI partner.

In an interview with Digital Spy she said: “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 very honest in her critique of the contestants on the ITV show of late and seems to be growing into the role of judges. She has judged dancing competitions since she was a teenager but insisted that she isn't trying to take Jason Gardiner’s Mr. Nasty spot.
She added: “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.”
The former Pussycat Doll has had an interesting week so far and yesterday (Feb 18) she apparently spent six hours having her body painted as part of a new ad campaign she’s backing.
Roberts tweeted: “Typical day at the office… Ya know getting body painted. Ha good times!!!”
