Plan B Magazine once suggested that Jeremy Kyle spends his days off driving a Land Rover into council estates to shout at the underclass.

Years of exploitative, classist poverty porn, and I hope this is the fucking end of it.

Was always going to happen enventually. Lie detectors have an accuracy of what, 70%? They were pushed as being 95% accurate when 3 out of 10 readings would be false and were taken as gospel and allowed to ruin lives. If they aren't admissible in a courtroom trial they shouldn't be admissible in trial by television.

I don't know how true this is but I read recently that people that go on the show don't even get paid?

Just travel expenses and a hotel. When I decided to check on the internet (yeah I know) someone even said they covered the price of their cigarettes, that part doesn't surprise me.

Terrible TV show, not that I would want to share my problems on national television but thought they would get paid something, even if it was couple hundred quid.

My other half went for a work trial at the hotel they get put in. It's the travelodge/premier Inn at the top end of Deansgate (the opposite end to the train station and locks). Anyway, the lady that was showing her around said sometimes if they're cleaning those rooms they're left in a horrible state.

What got me about them is how do they know they're 97% effective?  Did the 3% turn round and say "Yeah mate, I was lying the whole time".  Or were they?

A ‚Äėfriend‚Äô surprised me with tickets to the show. All I was told was to get in the mega bus, go to the studio and keep your headphones in. It was only when we got in the studio I realised where we were. I‚Äôd seen snippets of the show and had never expressed any fondness of it, fuck knows why she thought it would be fun to do.¬†

As expected it was completely grim. He sat on women’s knees in the audience as part of his own warm up, the utter slimy slink. 

On the show, two lads were on stage arguing over a woman, they started to fight, got pulled apart, dragged to opposite exits. They then stopped filming, told the audience there was a slight lighting issue and fixed it after 5 mins. They then let the lads back out to fight, presumably in order to  record it again with the fixed lighting.

It was a horrid experience. We couldn’t leave while recording either.

That's true - it's been fairly widely reported. I can't remember who said it, but a sad part of it is that the hotel/free bar/expenses are, to a lot of the people on it, a pretty big deal. It's a night away from everything, where you're the centre of attention, and you're getting put up in a hotel with free drinks, food, breakfast, etc.

They aren't and he's a cunt, but you would messure the success rate with a controlled study of a sufficient number of participants involving baseline tests and responses which can be reliability proven true or false pre or post assessment.
