Jeremy Kyle finally got what he was due today when he got in the middle of two sisters fighting. The talk show host, who has presented the programme for 11 years, was pushed to the floor for protection by his security after a guest stormed onto the set to attack her own sister.
The segment titled “I’ll prove we’re not sisters – can you prove you’re not on drugs?” saw Emma confront her younger sister Kelly about her drug usage. Cameras panned away from the moment, but they caught the 51-year-old being helped back up to his feet by his security.
After the incident, shown earlier today on ITV, Jeremy posted the following on Twitter:
What a show this morning, It’s all been going off! #Jeremykyle pic.twitter.com/h0os9sbc8y

Once back on his feet, Jezza joked: “Just back from a holiday, open my mouth, and get flattened.” A spokeswoman for ITV added:”Jeremy was shocked when the guest ran on the stage and fell off the chair.”
The infamous talk show, once described by a judge as a “human form of bear baiting”, has seen many controversial incidents over the years including a guest head-butting a love rival, Jeremy being hit in the head with an envelope, and a man who failed a lie detector that proved he had sex with his two step-daughters and his estranged wife.
