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 1 - Extreme Eaters
 
Jeremy looks at Britain’s obesity crisis, lifting the lid on the competitive world of eating challenges, a craze from America which involves people consuming huge portions of food within a time limit. He meets a woman from the West Midlands who claims to be able to take on any eating challenge. The programme also visits a fast food restaurant in Las Vegas which encourages customers to eat calorie laden, unhealthy meals - apparently in the name of education - and Jeremy confronts its owner about his approach.
