Corrie family in 'Jeremy Kyle' showdown

One of Coronation Street’s most dysfunctional families will air their dirty laundry in a special edition of 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

One of Coronation Street’s most dysfunctional families will air their dirty laundry in a special edition of 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

David Platt, played by Jack P Shepherd, his ex-girlfriend and step-sister Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) and his big brother Nick (Ben Price) will have it out on the 1,000th episode of the rowdy talk show.

Coronation Street’s Graeme Proctor, played by Craig Gazey, will provide contributions from the audience.

In keeping with a typical Jeremy Kyle episode, David demands a lie detector to see if Tina and Nick have been sleeping together.

Gazey said they had not rehearsed beforehand, adding: “We’re going to do it exactly how people do it. My character is quite funny and may come out with silly things but we’re not doing it for a laugh. We want it to be as if the characters were on Jeremy Kyle.”

Keegan admitted she was nervous ahead of her appearance, adding: “I like Jeremy Kyle. I always watch it, so it’s a bit weird to be one minute watching it and the next on the show.”

The episode airs on Thursday March 18 on ITV1.
