Jeremy Kyle Threatens To Sue After Guest Accuses Him Of Cheating

You should know better than to start on Jeremy Kyle. The TV talk show host has got big security guards backing him up and frankly, you're probably not going to win.

But one guest looked to have got under Jezza's skin - he turned the tables on getting grilled about cheating on his girlfriend by asking Kyle where his own (now ex-) wife was. Uh-oh.


The cheeky bloke even accused Jez of cheating on his wife, leading Jeremy to threaten to sue the bloke for libel. Something tells us he wasn't joking either.

It all started when couple Lewis and Shannon returned to the show for lie detector tests after Lewis had previously been outed as a serial cheater before.

The pair were hauled back on the show as Shannon's cousin Danielle faced a lie detector test to prove she hadn't slept with him too. Unsure why you'd do that with your girlfriend's relative, but there you go - mankind is an unpredictable breed, ours is not to reason why, etc etc.

As Jezza laid into Lewis for repeatedly playing away on his partner, Lewis decided he'd had enough and tried to turn attention to Jeremy's love life instead.

"Where's your wife? Where's your wife?" Lewis asked, after Jezza told him he didn't treat women with respect.

"I don't have a wife, I'm divorced. And?" Jezza replied, clearly perplexed.

"Was you cheating?" Lewis asked cheekily.

"No! I wasn't!" Jeremy replied.

Shannon quickly jumped to Jeremy's defence, telling Lewis: "He's doing the show to help people like us and all you're doing is sitting there disrespecting him."

Jezza clearly wasn't impressed either, telling Lewis he could sue him for libel as the guest tried spoiling for a fight.

Viewers on Twitter found the scrap pre, wondering what Jez expected to get.

One said: "Sue him for libel, Jeremy? For what? One weeks dole and a packet of rizla"

"Sue for libel, please Jezza!" another viewer added.

Later it turned out that Lewis had done the dirty on Shannon again, but Danielle was indeed telling the truth. Just as well for both of their dignities really.

Jeremy even told Shannon she was worth more than a bloke like Lewis after it turned out he'd cheated on her three times in quick succession.

As it turns out, Jezza recently proposed to his new girlfriend Vicky Burton. Heaven forbid a guest accuses him of cheating on her.
