Jeremy Kyle was born in London in 1965 and is a well known TV and Radio personality. He started in Radio in 1995 at Orchard FM in the sales department. He then moved Kent's Invicta FM in 1996 and then on to Birmingham's BRBM in 1997 where he stayed for three years.
In 2000, Kyle moved to the Century FM network, taking this format with him. The show was called Jezza's Confessions. It broadcast between 9pm and 1am. On July 1, 2002, he made his first broadcast on Virgin Radio, presenting Jezza's Virgin Confessions every weekday 8pm - Midnight. In mid 2003 he broadcast the show from 9pm - 1am every weekday and, in January 2004, the show went out 10pm - 1am Sunday - Thursday. The beginning of June 2004 saw his departure from Virgin Radio.
In July 2004, Capital Radio announced it had signed Kyle to present the Confessions show on London's Capital FM from September 5, 2004. The new programme aired from Sunday to Thursday 10pm - 1am including live calls on relationship issues of all kinds. Capital Confessions came to an end on December 22, 2005
In 2005 he moved into TV with his own show on ITV Called ''The Jeremy Kyle show''. He has often been criticised for his aggresive manner to the shows guests.
He has a range of topics on the show from drug taking teenagers, paternity tests, lie detectors and others.
The format is that the guests sit on nice chairs on the stage and Jeremy sits on the stairs up towards the stage and talks to them, The audience are also able to make points and sometimes there are family members or friends of the guests in the audience who sometimes make a comment.
Jeremy often talks on the show about when he was addicted to gambling and when he has addicts on the show he always talks to them like he understands but that they need to do something about it.
I find that his aggresive manner is mostly annoying but is sometimes justified like when there is an abusive drunk he somtimes lays in to them to get their act together, especially if they have kids. He shows an agressive but caring manner to his guests.
When I came across this program the first time I thought he was just a shouting loser but after watching a few more episodes I have changed my view and although I don't agree with everything he says he does make a lot of sense when talking to the guests.
He seems to care about getting these peoples problems sorted out and If they say yes then he seems to want to do all he can to help them which is good.
The Jeremy Kyle show is shown Monday-Friday at 9.25am and is repeated later that afternoon on ITV2. If you havent seen it yet, take a look and make your own judgment about him and the show.
Summary: Watch it and see
