Nevertheless, Kyle's character is what keeps his show going and continues to entertain its many viewers since 2005.

However, we know that often public personas develop a character, while being completely different people in real life. Believe it or not, Jeremy Kyle is one of them.

Dedicated family man

There are a lot of things going on in Jeremy Kyle's personal life and he's dealing with all of it with great strength. After his mother passed away at the age of 85, he invited his father to stay with him in order to support the grieving man and keep him company. Kyle told The Sun:

I’ve just moved dad up nearer to where we live, after we said goodbye to mum. Just to be closer to us, and spend time with the family.

In addition, Jeremy has been trying on a new role for him as he recently became a grandfather for the first time. For the famous TV host it's been an amazing experience, as he said himself:

I love it. Everyone says it’s great because you can give them back! But no, she’s amazing, she’s very important. I tell everyone ‘she’s the best looking baby in the world!’ and her mum Hattie has done a fantastic job. I’m very proud.

Who knew Jeremy Kyle was actually such a big softie at heart? He loves spoiling his granddaughter and cherishes every minute he gets to spend with his family.

While Kyle is an exemplary father and granddad to his offspring, the man has always had issues with being a good husband. 

Bad at love life

Jeremy's first marriage with Kirsty Rowley lasted only two years – the couple tied the knot in 1989 and quickly called it quits in 1991. They did, however, manage to have his first daughter Harriet, who is still very close with him.

The reason for his first marriage crumbling was Kyle's gambling addiction. Kirsty couldn't handle constantly missing money and their financial problems, so she decided to take control and separate from her struggling husband.

In 2003, Jeremy found happiness once again and married Carla Germaine, who gave him 3 children. This marriage was more successful, but also ultimately reached its end in 2016 due to Carla's infidelity.
