Dancing on Ice professional Matt Evers has defended dancing partner Gemma Collins from a body-shamer on Twitter in a defiant statement.


Responding to the mean comment directed at the The Only Way is Essex star, Matt said he was "sure your mother's well proud" to the troll.

"Who are you to judge and say something like that?" he tweeted. "Any decent 'MAN' wouldn't body shame a woman.



"Unless your manhood is that small you're threatened that their balls are bigger than yours. I'm sure your mothers well proud. Show your face 'Paul'."

Gemma and Matt's pairing was unveiled earlier this week, and we are sure she is in safe hands as he's a seasoned pro, having appeared on every series.

Meanwhile, The GC recently responded to claims that she had threatened to quit the ITV series, insisting she was enjoying the experience so far.



"Two and a half hours a day I'm training. It's very very intense," she told Digital Spy and others. "Despite reports that I don't enjoy it, that's just absolute crap. I'm really enjoying it. It is challenging but it's fun."

She added: "In it to win it? Everyone thinks I'm really confident, but today on the ice I did have a little cry because I am trying so hard and it's frustrating because when I'm skating, I've got all these professionals doing all the twirls and I want that to be me.

"I'm loving life."

Dancing on Ice returns next year on ITV.
