I'm sure there will be some mixed opinions on this show here but has anyone else found the furore over the last few days ridiculous?

One man kills himself and everyone has lost their minds. Entire show cancelled, YouTube channel wiped, and now the government getting involved? The fuck is going on?

It seems an overreaction to me.

It might sound harsh but anyone who goes on that show knows what they are getting in to, I mean FFS it's The Jeremy Kyle show everyone knows what it's like.

The fact he went on the show to take on a lie detector test in which he surely has seen nearly every fucker fail to beat the test has to be on him.

It's like deliberately walking in to dog shit when you can clearly avoid it.

Regardless it needs to go. Let's be honest it's shit tv exploiting the lowest of the low and we need to steer folk away from this sort of garbage.

I daresay it'll be replaced with something even worse though. :lol:
Meh. Nobody made these people do anything. They went on the show because they wanted to and I assume they were compensated in some way.

Always hated this show, the worst but also some of the most vulnerable of society paraded on national television for other peoples entertainment never sat well with me.

Surprised they cancelled it, it was a popular show, but I guess with other shows like Love Island also having issues with contestants committing suicide I guess it was prudent. A 2nd suicide could of opened them up to further criticism.

While this is true, many of the people on these shows are not exactly the most intelligent bunch. Poorly educated, socially isolated and inept makes them easy targets to exploit.

I'm sure many people who go on the show end up regretting it. I mean you cheat on your pregnant GF and then go on national television and expect to pass a lie detector test or a DNA test. These people are dumb enough to think they can get away with it and the producers of this show know they were taking advantage of people at times I'm sure.

Reality TV seems to thrive on making people look foolish, lots of people watch shows like that and think "at least I'm not like them" and find some of the topics funny. The show is I believe heavily edited though to make the guests look even more stupid and as for lie detectors there's a reason they aren't used in court, because they aren't accurate yet everyone seems to believe them on shows like this.

No doubt at all that this is only temporary. For Kyle it probably is the end end of the road however, I think in 10-12 months something similar with a different host will emerge.

Yes they get two hundred and fifty quid. A friend of mine knows a couple of people who have been on there. The usual type, fat birds with forearm tats, loads of kids and it's anyone's guess who's the father. :lol:

Hasn't Love Island generated two suicides in the last two years?

Yeah, and there's only been 148 or so episodes of that show. Jeremy Kyle was into the 2/3000 tally when it got axed, and there was only one suicide.

The new series of Love Island starts pretty soon here in the UK.

Irony.
