'theatre of cruelty' that just about sums it up and some.
If what the 'runner' says is true then the production team are just as low life as the presenter and probably most of the studio audience.
Poke and Goad the afflicted like some lunatic asylum.
Interesting article that confirms what obnoxious rubbish the show was. Unfortunately there's a big market for obnoxious rubbish, so it'll be back probably with a different name and presenter at some point.

Kyle should take the opportunity to move on and try and do something more worthwhile.
For a show that no one watches, there are plenty opinions about it ;*)

// For a show that no one watches, there are plenty opinions about it ; //

It's impossible to completely avoid. I've come across it while flicking through the Freeview channels in the fruitless task of trying to find something worth watching before inevitably going to Netflix.

I confess I've spent the odd minute transfixed by it as one might do a car crash, before moving on in disgust.

I didn't actually watch it but my two sons did in the other room to where I was. I could hear the same old,same old shouting,general hysterics and a pathetic goading audience. I heard an abusive rude,ignorant bully calling his 'guests' all sorts in the secure knowledge he would be rescued by a standby security team.
Retro //Poke and Goad the afflicted like some lunatic asylum.//
I wonder what any of the participants in this programme would think about your, rather insulting, remark?
Agree Anne, my neighbour is quite upset that this programme has been taken off the air as she loved it. Agree it was not to everyone's taste, but last time I looked we were still able to watch what we want on TV. There is an on/off switch plus another 100 or so stations.
Only 14 years too late.
Nasty show, glad it has ended. No doubt Channel 5 or some satellite channel will rebrand it and keep it on air.

//I wonder what any of the participants in this programme would think about your, rather insulting, remark?//
My remark was about the audience and not, for the most part,the 'guests' on the show .
Kyle is there to deliberately wind up the aggrieved parties and is egged on by a baying audience hoping,no doubt, for blood.
It is almost Gladitorial. It is like bear baiting and not unlike allowing entry ,by payment,to a lunatic asylum by an unscrupulous warder to literally poke the unfortunate inmates. Now that is insulting.!!
calling him a low life bully is silly imo!
People have a free choice to on that program - no one is twisting their arms or breaking their legs - they choose to go on it and wash their dirty laundry - do they also get paid?
It would appear that a lot of the participants are,shall we say, vulnerable people. The lure of a night in a hotel with free mini bar,cigarettes and chauffeur will be enough to entice these people on to the show I am sure. Some of probably never been a guest in a hotel.
Just as easy as enticing a kid into a sweet shop.
I don't know if they are paid but I expect expenses are given.
Yes, I think they get about £500
//Runners were given a headset and clipboard that opened up - a useful place to store a pack of 20 cigarettes - and a lighter for guests who wanted a smoke before and after recordings.

The cigarettes were provided by ITV, because guests can't bring them in the studio.

Guests were put up in a hotel close to the studio, sometimes with access to a mini bar so they could get wasted the night before.

A friend who also worked on the show told me guests from the programme were banned from certain hotels because rooms were being trashed.

Runners now have to ferry people to and from a hotel miles away from the studio in taxis.

The clothes you see the guests wear are sometimes not their own. The show might give them a basic jeans and T-shirt combo or sometimes a more stereotypical tracksuit and hoodie look - and those have to be given back afterwards.//

Low life bully my arris, people went on his programme for their 15 minutes of fame, no one forced them to appear. Get a life TTT.
As I said above, there's a big market for obnoxious rubbish.

danny you seem to be eager to defend this show, have you been on it?
Question Author
"Agree Anne, my neighbour is quite upset that this programme has been taken off the air as she loved it" - don't worry no doubt it'll be replaced by some other similarly intellectual offering.
TTT, No I have not been on it.What I am objecting to is the way participants are being portrayed as being mentally impaired.
