Some viewers said they were 'disgusted' by Jason's bizarre comment toWes Nelsonduring the pre-watershed family friendly show.

The awkward moment came after Jason had awarded a 10 to the Love Island star for his first performance of the evening.

Wes, who had been flexing his muscles during the performance in a red vest, saw the funny side and burst out laughing.

The audience burst out laughing, but left the rest of the judging panel looking confused.

Jayne Torvill let out a giggle but gave a look of bewilderment to the camera.

Trying to move on, Jason continued: "The two of you are just so phenomenal together. You look great. And I just have nothing else to say other than you deserve to be in the final."

The camera then panned round to Doctor Who actor John Barrowman, who was clapping in the audience.

Giggling Holly said: "Thank you Jason - thank you very much."

Outraged viewers took toTwitterto blast Jason for the 'perv' comment.

One viewer said: "Why is @officialJasonG getting away with saying he can perv over Wes yet if he was straight and said he was perving over the ladies it would be outrageous. Double standards"

Another added: "@officialJasonG #DancingOnIce so disgusted that you are admitting to being a 'perv' on TV, isn't that sexual discrimination?"

A third asked: "'I can just sit back and perv' - Is that really acceptable for a 6pm family show?"

Wes and Vanessa gave the perfect performance during their opening skate.

The couple wowed the judges and received four tens for their amazing routine.

However, this will not influence the results as only the viewers have the power to decide who wins.
