OUR shame? Must say, all the same this poor, rather well spoken lad is NOT typical of the show, and is obviously somewhere on the autistic spectrum. Should NOT have been invited and put through that. Surprised at them, frankly!
I live near the studios, and use a taxi company employed by Granada TV. Have heard some of the guests are a disgrace, when ferried around, and some ask the stupidest questions, on they way back home, like "have we left Manchester yet", some 40 miles OUT of the city!! Also heard many wreck their hotel rooms. All hearsay, but hey ho!?
Once DID turn it on and saw a "client" of mine, I knew in my professional capacity. Was a lovely story, involving a girl loosing a baby, because her BF had kicked her in the stomach! Is NO WAY as staged as Springer. That is utter humiliation and really disturbing, with all the staged fights and clothes ripping. Some types do get help from Kyle and his team, but some of the ones who become regulars just enjoy their extended 15 minutes of fame that little too much. Love how these "chavs" are starting a family, a few weeks into a relationship, paid for by us tax payers. Also so much admission of drug use, why not just have a police team based in the studios? Also what gives with all this "he beats me up, but I love him" they bleat!! God help us!! Lie detector? Smydetector !!!!!
For me KYLE has a serious case of "little man syndrome". Is VERY full of himself! I no longer work full time, and admit I turn it on at 9.25am, ITV-1, if nothing better to do, so I am just as bad as the rest of the oh so smug voyeurs, who need their dose of trash, before they can face the day ahead?!
