Jeremy Kyle branded ‘vile’ by TV sofa rival Matthew Wright

Jeremy Kyle’s unique brand of TV tears and tantrums has been branded revolting by a rival television presenter.

Matthew Wright took to the Mirror newspaper to accuse Kyle of ‘humiliating failures for entertainment’ during a strongly worded attack.

Wright, who presents the Wright Stuff on Channel 5, said of his schedule neighbour: “It’s revolting. I have no respect for it. His old radio phone-in [on Capital FM] was inspiring and wonderful.

“Now his TV show is about humiliating failures for entertainment. It’s vile.

“I have no time to watch it. I have better things to do. He is a nice enough bloke but he has sold his soul.”

Wright also took the opportunity to voice disappointment at being unable to convince the prime minister to appear on his show, claiming this was a result of “… backward-thinking -politicians, that you should only do business with ITV and the BBC.”
