Series overview
 
Jeremy Kyle returns for a new series investigating high-profile issues that impact on people’s lives - from drinking to irresponsible driving, and from hate crime to homelessness.
 
Each week, Jeremy and the Kyle Files team get to the heart of the matter as they work with the emergency services, film covertly, interview victims and confront protagonists to demand answers.
 
Episode 5 - Hate Crime
 
Following Brexit, and with the news that levels of hate crime were on the rise even before June 2016, Jeremy investigates how tensions between different groups are simmering. The programme visits Bolton to witness a demonstration against plans for a new mosque, and Jeremy attends a mediation meeting between the two sides aimed at reaching an amicable resolution. He also looks at a rise in homophobic attacks, joining revellers at Pride Manchester, and meeting a participant who has been physically abused because of his sexuality. The programme also features a social experiment to find out who might intervene when a waitress starts abusing a gay couple.
