Has anyone else seen the Jeremy Kyle Show? I’ve just watched it for the first time and I can’t work out if the people on are real or actors.
If they are real can anyone explain why anybody would go on tv and air their personal problems in the manner they do? Also, should it be allowed? I felt very uncomfortable watching it, and won’t do so again, and it feels this program is about as low as it can get. :angry:April 20, 2007 at 15:50 #105091dave jayMember

Yes it’s real Pete .. although the scum bags who appear on it do get paid .. so some of them will definitely be a wind up. The Missus knows a family that went on there, we are currently penning our own appearance.April 20, 2007 at 20:36 #105092Irish StampMember

A spokeswoman for ITV said: “We do not recognise the district judge’s description of our programme, or his opinion of the viewing public and the people who choose to take part in our programme in an effort to resolve their problems.”
Clearly the woman who taught Wenger how to perfect the line, “I didn’t see it”?

After reading this, I thought I would have a glance this morning at the said programme.
What a programme?
It was awful – as was the presenter.

I met the aforementioned Mr Kyle a few weeks back while visiting Ascot Sales ~ he had just returned from a visit to Nick Gifford. I opined that Mr Gifford was undoubtedly a lovely fella but not necessarily a great trainer of racehorses. He replied that he considered being nice to be more important than being successful.

rory, I can’t hide my disappointment that your post didn’t end with the phrase "……..and then I kicked him in the bollocks".

Grass, your succint and elegant portrayal of how many of us feel but cannot find the words to express never ceases to amaze me.September 25, 2007 at 19:59 #116409non vintageMember

Can’t think of anything positive to say about programmes like this.
I guess it appeals to the valium-dependent generation of miserable, poor, hopeless apathetics who inhabit our sink estates and probably like it because of some sense of tribal solidarity…
In that sense, it’s harmless I suppose. But not good. And Nick Gifford, you say? Christ…September 25, 2007 at 20:20 #116417GrasshopperParticipant

Must try harder.
Someone done that to me at school once, it hurt.
Marb, it was probably the teacher simply trying to cajole you into getting better grades.
You shouldn’t have taken it so personally.September 26, 2007 at 06:54 #116474dave jayMember
