The show's judge claimed that Taylor's rivals will be unhappy after hearing that she has already appeared on BBC One's Strictly Ice Dancing in 2004.
Gardiner told Closer magazine: "The show's all about conquering your fear of the ice and Jessica's already done that because she's skated before, so she has an advantage.
"The others will probably be miffed that it's not an even playing field, but I suppose Chris Fountain competed last year and he was already an ice hockey champ."
He added: "Everyone starts off as good friends - one big skating family - but by week four, the stars become weak and vulnerable. That's when they start going for each other!"
Gemma Bissix became the first female celebrity to be eliminated on Sunday night.
