The controversial ITV daytime show will be the subject of a new Channel 4 documentary series.
Each hour-long episode will examine the impact of The Jeremy Kyle Show on British culture and the lives of previous guests. The episodes will be made by the same production company behind Jade: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain for Channel 4 in 2019.
Channel 4’s senior commissioning editor of factual, Alisa Pomeroy, said: “These award-winning programme-makers will undoubtedly explore some incredibly important issues raised by the making of these type of programmes. The film will also seek to explain why they had such mass appeal and generated a huge amount of social comment, which still continues today.”
Executive producer Graeme McAulay said: “We’re hoping this series will contribute to a greater public understanding of the impact and complexities involved in programmes like The Jeremy Kyle Show and explore why it continues to divide opinion.”
