Dancing on Ice‘s sardonic judge Jason Gardiner might want to be on his best behaviour on the show this weekend – particularly when it comes to critiquing Saira Khan.

It’s just been confirmed that Saira’s fellow Loose Women stars will be joining the judging panel on Sunday night to support her debut (and probably to keep Jason in check too).

Rumours had been swirling that Loose Women‘s Jane Moore, Andrea McLean and Coleen Nolan would be taking over on the judging panel on Sunday night (January 13), and a source close to the show has told Digital Spy that the stars from the daytime show will be part of the Dancing on Ice panel.

Further details are yet to be officially released.

This series’ DoI panel features Gardiner, Diversity’s Ashley Banjo and ice-skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

Speaking about how her Loose Women co-stars have supported her so far, but without sugar-coating their own experiences in the competition, Saira recently revealed (via Female First): “Andrea told me about her broken ribs, Nadia said it was the worst thing ever and Coleen did alright, so it’s like, ‘Thanks girls, that’s very helpful’.

“But of course, it’s a sisterhood – they want me to do well.”

Brian McFadden, Wes Nelson, Richard Blackwood, Ryan Sidebottom and Melody Thornton are among the celebrities who will be competing on the ice this weekend.
