In 2005 Kyle moved his format to ITV, with a programme entitled The Jeremy Kyle Show. Here Kyle has reached his widest audience to date. His often aggressive manner with guests (parodied by Dead Ringers has been the source of both popularity and criticism. He is seemingly unafraid of reprisal from his guests, believing that speaking his mind is better than holding his peace. Guests sometimes take offence at Kyle's comments, one guest even attempting to throw a chair at him, but he often justifies his criticism by claiming that he only wants to help them. Kyle recently claimed on air that his show was watched by 1.8 million viewers, a very high figure for a daytime chat show.
Other shows Kyle is involved with include Kyle's Academy, a ten part series for ITV1 daytime. A team of experts (life coaches and pyschotherapists), headed by Jeremy Kyle take 5 people and work with them over an intensive fortnight to help them on the road to a happier more fulfilled life.
Kyle has also presented Half Ton Hospital, a show about grossly obese people in the United States.
Jeremy Kyle Surgery Show
Jeremy has just made a new series of shows with a difference-All this week he is investigating various medical conditions and of course, the usual std tests.
I watched the show this morning with a mixture of awe and shock as a girl had minor surgery in the studio and 4 guests found out who had chlamydia and gonohrea-2 did and 2 didn't!!
I shall certainly be watching every morning this week and can't wait for tomorrow!!
I have had 114 hits on this site today, so Jeremy is obviously up to something-will anyone please spill the beans and let us know exactly what?
Please, Pretty Please.........?
