Screaming, bullying and sexual humiliation – unedited footage of the Jeremy Kyle show has sparked an outcry among MPs who have demanded urgent answers from ITV.

Footage seen by MPs shows ‘vulnerable’ guests being ‘demeaned and humiliated’ by the host.

The ITV show is currently under investigation for its treatment of contestants following the death of Steve Dymond in May.

The entire series was pulled from the air when Mr Dymond took his own life days after failing a lie detector test.

As part of the investigation, The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee called on ITV to provide unedited footage of the chat show for review.

Their findings show Kyle using ‘demeaning and insulting language’ , asking a woman a ‘humiliating’ question about her sexual partners and encouraging his audience to jeer contributors.

Managing director of ITV Studios Julian Bellamy has been to asked to explain whether ITV condones Kyle’s approach to his guests.

Host Jeremy was accused of ‘demeaning and insulting language’

In an open letter, the Committee asks that as guests are banned from using aggression and swearing, if host Jeremy Kyle faced consequences for the language he used during filming.

“Why is it one rule for the presenter and one for contributors?” they asked. “Do you accept that this level of provocation, towards often vulnerable contributors with no TV experience, is highly unethical?”

Another clip shows Kyle instructing the audience how to ‘boo’ and shout ‘off-off’ at a contributor – even overruling the director at one point.

They also claim Kyle set a power dynamic with his body language by standing over guests and using mocking and insulting language towards them.

ITV claimed that Jeremy Kyle takes stories ‘as he finds them’

ITV previously claimed that Jeremy Kyle ‘always takes peoples/stories as he finds them and only gives evidence based on what he sees and hears from guests on the day.’

The unedited footage depicts one interaction between Jeremy Kyle and the crew in which he asks “I’m right aren’t I?”

To which a member replies: “You’re always right.”

At another point, Kyle refers to ‘my staff’ and ‘my show’.

The Committee asks ITV for answers on whether Kyle’s role extended beyond listening to guests and offering advice to directing cameras.

Another unedited scene sees Kyle ‘denigrate’ a woman as she answers a question relating to her sexual partners.

The Committee of MPs has asked ITV if they condoned this ‘humiliating’ approach.

The inquiry was launched following events leading up to the decision to cancel The Jeremy Kyle Show.

The Committee is considering the duty of care offered by broadcasters and programme makers to participants in reality TV.

ITV has been given until Friday 25 October to respond to the points raised in the letter.
