About Jeremy Kyle
Weekdays at 1pm
The UK's most loved, watched and controversial talk show, presented by Jeremy Kyle tackles issues head on, dealing with family and relationships, and taking a frank look at the every day conflicts that affect our lives. Not afraid to say exactly what he thinks, Jeremy believes the only way to solve a problem is through honesty and openness.
The show is distinctive for its confrontational style, which sees guests attempt to resolve issues with others that are significant in their lives, such as family, relationship, sex, drug, alcohol and other issues. Frequently, guests display strong emotions such as anger and distress on the show, and Kyle is often harsh towards those that he feels have acted in morally dubious or irresponsible ways, whilst strongly emphasising the importance of traditional family values.
This has led to both criticism and parody of the show in newspapers and on television, and even led to the show being described as "human bear-baiting" by a Manchester District Judge during a prosecution after guests had been involved in a violent incident on the show.
