    Has anyone watched episode one of this? Second episode on tonight.

    Christ it wasn't something I would have watched...but talk about exploitation.

    The portions of Jeremy Kyle speaking in outtakes....an absolutely vile individual.

    Yes crazy what they were getting away with, just exploiting people. I found it sad the woman who's partner committed suicide after the recording was made of him to be on the show (it never aired as a result of his suicide) yet she still to this day loved Jeremy Kyle and even got a tatoo of his signature on her shoulder.

    What became of Trisha? She had the original show in the same format.

    Is Kyle himself talking on this documentary?

    No, just clips from the show. Some of them never broadcast, retakes etc. he was an asshole the whole recording not just an act to the guests

    He gave a written statement through lawyers, basically absolving himself & saying it's defamatory.

    It was a popular show, most thought they were just staging it but seems they just wound them up and let them go.

    Is this a surprise to people? The worst form of exploitative trash. Following a template set down by the likes of Heraldo, Jerry Springer etc.

    It was shocking really and Jeremy Kyle is a pig. It's true 20k appeared on this ghastly show but I'm not sure if it was discussed wether they were paid or not, but I'd say its safe to say they got something.

    Whilst easy to judge some of the contestants, and some were worse than Vile, actually mostly were odious, there should have been a duty of care. The shows therapist was a clown of the highest order, he just stood by idly as that disgusting Jeremy berated guests and not only in the main studio but in back rooms. The therapist went on to make a fool of himself in front of a parliamentary committee.

    One thing I found very odd and mindful they used actors, the staff involved in this show seemed to have suffered selective amnesia and failed to grasp they were apart of this monstrosity, I thought it rich and a little late to claiming they didn't see or understand what was going on and god bless them, they suffered too.

    I wasn't aware there was other Suicides indirectly linked to the show but I was not surprised.

    I saw a few episodes of this tripe and always felt it would end in tears. Ultimately Guests, Producers, Staff and presenter were responsible in someway. If anything good comes out of this, I hope it will be an end to this vulgar, crass and offensive type of entertainment.

    Is maith an scáthán súil charad.

    3 thousand plus episodes.

    Not sure about pay, most people online said you get transport, hotel, food and drink etc

    tripe of the highest order, TV for sun readers

    Kyle isn't too happy about it, he's talking about taking legal action.



  • Registered Users Posts: 18,069 ✭✭✭✭fryup


    good, i hope it goes to court and Kyle is shown up for the spineless little worm that he is, acting all hard on TV with big burly security men around him..i'd like to see him squirm in court, the tables turned so to speak😑
