'Jeremy Kyle' (born 7 July 1965) is an English radio and television presenter, best known for hosting the controversial tabloid talk show The Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV since 2005. In 2011, Kyle began hosting the American version of his eponymous show, which was cancelled after two seasons.
Kyle met his first wife, Kirsty Rowley, in 1988, when he was a recruitment consultant in an agency in Bristol. They became a couple within a fortnight, and were engaged within two months. They married in Almondsbury, South Gloucestershire, seven months later in July 1989. Their daughter, Harriet, was born in June 1990. The marriage ended just five months after the birth, in November 1990. His ex-wife has claimed that Kyle had carefully concealed a destructive and expensive gambling habit from her over the course of their marriage. Kyle met former model Carla Germaine in 1999, while he was presenting on a BRMB radio show, and Germaine entered the controversial Two Strangers and a Wedding contest hosted by the station. As the winner of the bride part of the contest, her prize was to marry the selected groom, Greg Cordell. Their marriage lasted only three months, after claims that Greg had an affair just days after their honeymoon, and she subsequently married Kyle in 2002. They have two daughters and a son together.Kyle is a supporter of West Ham United. Kyle suffers from obsessive–compulsive disorder and has stated that he "licks his mobile phone to make sure it's clean" in his book I'm Only Being Honest. Kyle has described his opinion on Broken Britain: "I think it starts with the breakdown of the family unit. Society should invest more in our kids. There should be community centres and youth clubs. And our benefits system – it's the greatest in the modern world. But there are loopholes and people taking advantage." In October 2010, Kyle appeared at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham. He chaired "Getting Britain Back To Work" alongside George Osborne. In late 2012, Kyle was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He received chemotherapy and underwent surgery to remove the affected testicle. He was given the all-clear following surgery and returned to presenting The Jeremy Kyle Show; the recording of the show had been put on hold while Kyle underwent treatment.While filming in Magaluf, Kyle was reported to have been sprayed by pepper spray. Some reports stated that a substance was sprayed above the heads of a busy crowd which had an effect on Kyle, but a bouncer in Magaluf claimed to have deliberately sprayed Kyle with pepper spray because of Kyle's perceived role in making Magaluf look bad.
