Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner has revealed that he was mugged earlier tonight (November 13) in London.

Gardiner wrote on Twitter that he was threatened with a knife by two youths in the area of Stockwell and ordered to hand over his iPhone.

He tweeted: "Tonight I was mugged by two hooded black youths in Stockwell who held a knife to my throat and threatened to kill me all for an iPhone!!

"Apart from being shaken I'm fine! I'm saddened more than anything and disgusted with where our society is heading (sic)."

After a Twitter follower claimed that it was "not really necessary to drop in the fact [the attackers] were black", Gardiner responded: "Yes it is. Its not racist its a vital fact in case anyone can help and report them to the police!"

Gardiner revealed in July that he had been left "at death's door" after being bitten by a sand fly while visiting Belize.
