Speaking to Now! magazine, he first took time to slate X Factor winners, and in particular Shayne Ward who is currently a contestant on Dancing on Ice.

Awkward.

Jason says: “The X Factor doesn’t really set out to make stars any more –not as winners. It hasn’t had that track record."

Er, Leona Lewis anyone? Little Mix? Alexandra Burke? Need we go on? No, let us let Jason do that...

"A lot of these shake and bake music stars who’ve come up through these TV shows don’t have a great work ethic, I’ve noticed."

"That’s why they don’t stick around. With this show you have to work hard. Has Shayne got the work ethic? I don’t know.”

Oof!

And it's not just X Factor, Jason also took the time to lay into The Only Way is Essex.

Safe to say, Jason Gardiner is not a fan.

Jason says: "I don’t get it. I’ve dipped in and tried but they all sound so stupid! I can actually feel my brain disintegrating."

"I sit there and think after five minutes: ‘There’s definitely something more I can be doing with my life than listening to people who can’t even string a sentence together.’"

We wonder if he told DOI contestants and TOWIE regular Lauren Goodger his views? Or just settled with calling her a walrus instead?!
