The professional choreographer has claimed that Taylor is ruining her chances of victory by holding back on the ice.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Gardiner revealed: "She's a funny fish and I've struggled with her. She's beautiful, but is it a performance? No, because it leaves you cold. You don't engage with her."
Asked for his assessment of Coleen Nolan, he replied: "[She's] a great lady but she shouldn't get to the final, for Pete's sake! She's got this far on her personality."
Gardiner also hit back at axed contestant Roxanne Pallett following her claims that he should be sacked.
"People like Roxanne Pallett need to grow up," he claimed. "She is a really silly little girl. The way she has handled herself has been very ungracious."
Dancing On Ice continues at 7.15pm tonight on ITV1.
