Jeremy Kyle Show’s most tumultuous romances – from wife swaps to sad fate of lovers who discovered they were SIBLINGS

CHEATING sagas, unexpected proposals and accidental incest were just a handful of the romance dramas which played out on the Jeremy Kyle show.

During its 14 year run, the controversial programme saw its fair share of break-ups and make-ups.

Here we look back at some of the most controversial couples who turned to Jeremy for help with matters of the heart, and what happened next.

Cheating scandal

Alan Kent, 38, appeared on the show in February 2017 with his wife Louise, whom he was convinced was having an affair behind his back.

The devout Mormon, who wore a three-piece suit and trainers, accused her of sneaking sexy clothes out of the house and not being as religious as she claimed to be.

During the show, Kent appeared to bond with Jeremy – to the point where the host branded him his "favourite guest ever".

Louise said she had made up the affair on the eve of their wedding because her husband kept accusing her – but later failed every lie detector test.

The couple decided to stay together and work on their relationship for the sake of their family.

However, a few months later Kent – still consumed by his wife's alleged infidelity – locked himself, his wife and two children in their Colchester home and assaulted her during an armed police stand off.

Kent allegedly threatened to kill himself, with a neighbour claiming he was "kicking off, shouting out of his windows… calling his wife every name you could think of".

Following the stand-off and arrest, Kent pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife and a police constable and was jailed for 16 weeks.

He was also slapped with a 12-month restraining order and a £100 fine, and ordered to pay £200 in costs, plus £100 in compensation to his wife and the police officer.

Kent was ordered to complete a 30-day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement to help him address his behaviour.

Wife swap

The show was renowned for its furious breakups, but for one man, it set the scene for him to get down on one knee – twice.

Andy originally proposed to girlfriend Shannie – even after she admitted she cheated on him with his best mate Chris.

Shannie was pregnant and Chris had insisted he was the dad, but she lost the baby and went back to her ex.

However, their reunion didn't last long, as Shannie then decided she wanted to be with Chris – and Chris' wife Kim hooked up with Andy.

On his return to the show, Andy got down on one knee again – this time to propose to Kim.

It's not clear if the couples have stayed together, but judging by their history, it doesn't bode well.

DNA bombshell

Gay couple Paul and Lee appeared on the show in 2012 to take a DNA test to check if they were related.

The pair met online and exchanged flirty messages for two years before meeting up, and it was love at first sight.

But when Lee took Paul home to meet his parents to reveal their plans to marry, family members remarked that Paul looked very similar to Lee's mum's ex-husband Ron – who shared the same surname as Paul.

Lee's mum later told him he had a secret half-brother. Paul was taken into care at 18 months old and adopted aged three.

Lee and Paul were devastated when the DNA test revealed they were half-siblings.

Their story was featured as part of a 10-year anniversary special in 2015.

It was revealed that the pair had ended their romantic relationship and built a close friendship as brothers instead.

Row over porn ads

Scottish couple Karen O’Neill and Charles Glen appeared on the show in 2018 because she believed he was cheating on her when dating ads popped up on their shared tablet.

It later transpired the targeted ads appeared after Glen looked at porn.

Glen failed his lie detector test but insisted it was skewed because he hadn't taken his methadone.

O’Neill decided to believe the lie detector test, but the pair stayed together.

However, shortly after the show a violent fight erupted at their home in Saltcoats, Ayrshire.

It went to court, where Glen admitted assaulting O’Neill under provocation – after the original charge was reduced from assault and robbery when she spoke up for him at his trial.

Glen was given a community sentence and was supervised by social workers for a year.

According to O'Neill's Facebook profile, she's currently single – suggesting the pair went their separate ways.

Teen bedded dad's girlfriend

Viewers were horrified when 18-year-old Kenny admitted he had sex with his dad Wayne's girlfriend of 20 years five times.

The father and son had previously been reunited on the programme, and made their shock return in 2019.

Kenny – who had brought along his girlfriend Cloe to watch – insisted he was "seduced" and that it was unfair he was the one who'd been kicked out of the house.

Unsurprisingly, Wayne refused to forgive him on the show, and it's not known if the pair ever managed to put the sorry saga behind them.
