Olympic figure skater Katarina Witt is in the hot seat for wearing low-cut tops as a judge on the popular U.K. show Dancing on Ice.

And the controversy among the figure skating show's fans, played up by British tabs, is spurring a German newspaper to shoot back by publishing photos of busty British glamour models.

The newspaper Bild published a photo of Witt, 46, wearing a red V-neck top that looks modest alongside busty British glamour models Katie Price and Jodie Marsh.

"And what about t---, lovely Britain?" the headline reads in defence of Witt.

"The British have insulted our ice princess Kati Witt. The gossip about our Kati Witt says British TV shows too much bosom. But wait a minute -- what about your babe Katie Price?"

Witt won two Olympic gold medals in the 1984 and 1988 and later posed for Playboy.

On Twitter, viewers tweeted that Witt's cleavage and figure-hugging attire was distracting to viewers.

Witt recently appeared on the show wearing less-revealing clothes. She said she was not ordered to cover up, but rather it was a personal choice.

"Of course you read the comments," she said on the show ITV This Morning.
