ITV Dancing On Ice viewers stunned by Jay McGuinness 'perv' comment to Holly Willoughby

The Wanted star Jay McGuinness left Dancing on Ice viewers stunned by a comment to presenter Holly Willoughby. Jay, who is from Nottinghamshire and won the 2015 series of Strictly Come Dancing, was being interviewed by Holly on the show about his former bandmate Siva Kaneswaran's Elvis routine on the show.

But his response when questioned by the This Morning presenter left views of the popular ITV show a little lost for words and the studio audience unsure how to react.

M.E.N reports that Holly asked him what she thought of Siva's hip action on the ice. She said: "He keeps saying he can't dance, but we all saw those hips tonight."

"You perv," replied Jay with a smile. And Holly retorted: "Well, you know, they were there." Jay then continued to praise his pal, saying: "I think any time anyone gets out there and moves their body that can be intimidating. But he's a big, gorgeous, handsome, good boy and he's doing do good and everyone's so proud of him."
