Brian McFadden makes a public dig at ITV during Gemma Collins’ Dancing On Ice leaving party

Brian McFadden made a public dig at ITV during Gemma Collins’ Dancing On Ice leaving do.

The former Westlife singer, who is taking part in the skating show, spoke during a toast following the TOWIE star’s exit on Sunday.

Brian can be heard on an Instagram video taking a swipe at ITV – which he thinks will struggle to get ratings now the headline-grabbing reality star is no longer performing.

The video starts with Gemma’s fella James ‘Arg’ Argent praising the 37-year-old, calling her an “absolute star” who “stole the show”.

The clip then cuts to Brian, 38, raising his glass and making a toast to Gemma, saying: “Let’s be honest, if it hadn’t been for you, nobody would have watched this f**king show.”

The room, filled with DoI celebs and professionals, let out a cheer before giving a nod to Gemma’s runner during the show, with one joking that he is “now a professional foot masseuse.”

Arge then calls for Gemma’s professional skater Matt Evers to make a speech, to which he says: “I’m free at last.”

He adds to Gemma: “No, it’s been absolutely amazing. You almost killed me, but I’m still alive and so are you.”

She replies: “I’m gonna buy a Gucci bag to make up for it.”

Following another cheer, Brian, who lives in Rochdale , cuts in again.

“And on a final note, you will notice that none of the people from ITV are here because they’re all trying to figure out how the f**k they’re going to get ratings next week,” he digs.

“No, they’re all celebrating,” Arg finishes.

Gemma was voted out of the show following a skate off with former cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, who received votes from all four judges.

Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday on ITV from 6pm.
