DOI’s Matt Evers details vile abuse he was sent for skating with Gemma Collins

Dancing On Ice pro Matt Evers was bombarded with sickening online abuse from vile Internet trolls for skating with Gemma Collins.

The Australian choreographer, 44, teamed up with The GC during last year’s show but were voted off on the sixth week after receiving low scores from judges.

But receiving low scores was not the worst part about last year’s show for Matt, as he revealed he was hit with abusive messages for simply being partnered up with the TOWIE star.

Recalling the harrowing experience in new! magazine, Matt told Bobby Norris: “I had so much trolling when I skated with Gemma Collins.”

He continued: “I’d block 100 people a day! People would say, ‘How do you deal with that fat ****? She’s vile’ I was like, ‘You don’t know this person’.”

Despite the mass abuse he received from trolls, Matt defended his opinion of Gemma, saying he never witnessed a nasty side to her.

He added: “Gemma’s the first to admit she can be difficult, but she always delivered and would always apologise if she hurt anyone’s feelings.

“I never saw a nasty side to her.”

Gemma was incredibly popular when she appeared on the show in January last year, with 1.9million fewer viewers tuning in the week after she was eliminated.

The reality star’s time on the show saw her suffer a nasty fall during one of her performances.

She also became embroiled in a bitter row with judge Jason Gardiner over his harsh criticism of her, often relating to her weight.

He regularly gave her very harsh criticism, sometimes relating to her weight, and she accused him of selling stories about her to the papers.

The reality TV icon also hinted that if she had the confidence she had now when she competed on the show, she would have won.
