Rufus Hound applauded those who were angry with him for making a bad impression on the government during his performance last night at Dancing on Ice.
The 41-year-old actor was one of six celebrities to take to the runway for the first episode of the new series, and he wasted no time with the recent school dinner scandal, talking to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
I spent most of the year without emotional stability because the world has no meaning, and it has no meaning anymore, Rufus said at the time.
We live in a world where our elected officials do not want to feed hungry children, and that is the least crazy thing that has happened to me in a long time.
After the broadcast, Rufus posted a message on Twitter to those who disagreed with his comments.
To people who want to be mean to me – you will never be my friend, he wrote.
To people who want to be mean to me, you will never be my friend. I wish things were different, but that’s the world we live in now.
To everyone else, thanks for your great work. I’ll try to keep the ice dancing fun for you.

The government faced criticism last week after parents shared photos of woefully inadequate food packages brought in to replace 30 pounds of food while schools remained closed.
One mother estimated that the contents of her pack would not exceed £5.22 if she bought it from Asda.

The government quickly reversed its decision on the Axis vouchers and Education Minister Gavin Williamson said the program would be reinstated this week.
Rufus and his professional partner Robin Johnstone made their debut at the concert last night with a performance on the theme of video games.

Judges Christopher Dean, Jane Torvill, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo were impressed with his routine and awarded him the show’s first golden ticket, eliminating the need for an audience vote and catapulting him straight to the next stage of the competition.
In his advice John said: It wasn’t because it was exceptionally funny and showed a lot of personality that I decided on Rufus and Robin.
Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
