Jeremy Kyle guests epic transformations – weight loss, rehab and dental work

Jeremy Kyle might have seen his ITV career go down in flames, but his controversial talk show also did a lot of good for some.

The Jeremy Kyle Show was dragged off air in 2019 after a contributor was found dead at home, just a week after he'd failed a lie detector test on the series.

And while the ITV series ended in tragedy, over the years Jeremy and his team showcased a number of success stories.

So, on his birthday (July 7), Daily Star is taking a look at the more positive stories from the show.


Michelle spent two decades of her life addicted to drugs, often spending £120 a day just to feed her habit.

Back in 2019, Michelle sought help from Jeremy and his army of experts after her sister April had branded her a "thief" and later forbid her from attending their grandfather's funeral.

She was sent on a rehab programme that lasted 10 weeks before returning to the show looking totally revamped.

At the time, she said: "I'm doing great. I love waking up every morning. I've got something to wake up for."

Michelle was living proof that there can be a happy ending and took TikTok a year later to showcase her revitalised skin and short sleek bob cut as she continued to beam with pride.

She penned: "Today a year ago, I came to Luton on the Jeremy Kyle show, to rehab, I'm gonna be a year clean on the 1/12/09."

In December last year, Michelle celebrated four years sober in a TikTok video, with her followers rushing to congratulate her.


Gemma first hit our screens when she appeared on a Jeremy Kyle Show titled: "Stop harassing me because I'm sleeping with your ex."

She was sleeping with someone else's former partner and was getting harassed for it and so turned to Jezza for help.

But after appearing on the show, Gemma quickly became an internet sensation but for all the wrong reasons.

She was hounded by online trolls and faced endless abuse due to her prominent front teeth.

As a goodwill gesture, ITV bosses invited Gemma back to the show in 2015 and offered to foot the bill for her dentistry treatment, splashing out a cool £10,000.

When Gemma took centre stage again, she unveiled her shiny new veneers and looking radically different.

Showing off her new smile, Gemma told Jeremy: "It's changed my life. I can look in the mirror now and not worry about anything.

"I'm a whole different person now."


Jonathan had just about hit rock bottom when his mum Sue begged Jeremy for help after his weight had completely snowballed out of control.

Weighing in at 30 stone, Jonathan was unable to work and spent most of his time devouring unhealthy foods such as pot noodle on toast and numerous takeaways.

Due to his size, he was unable to live a normal life and became riddled with anxiety and suffered from depression – that was until he decided to seek help from Jeremy's team in 2017.

He was later sent packing on a military-style bootcamp to kick start his lifestyle overhaul.

After being put through his paces and put on a strict diet, Jonathan was invited back to parade his results.

The audience gasped as he appeared looking razor-sharp in a dapper suit after shedding the pounds.

He said: "It's been a real tough thing, but I persevered.

"My third week, I thought I can't do this anymore but I carried on, for my family and my son, and to prove everyone who thought I was bad wrong."


Another mind-blowing transformation was soon-to-be dad Lukas, who was totally dependent on heroin, confessing to Jeremy at the time he needed the drug to "function" on a daily basis.

After facing a tough ultimatum from his girlfriend to fix up his life, otherwise, she'd walk away with their unborn child, he decided the show was his only hope.

Lukas was sent on an extensive six-week recovery programme after appealing for support.

Following his successful stay at the Providence Project in Bournemouth, he returned again, this time full of praise for those who had helped him on his recovery journey.

Jeremy could barely believe his transformation, as he gasped: "Oh my god, you look amazing!"


Paul first featured on the show in 2014 after his mum Irene had called for Jeremy's intervention as she was at her wits' end.

His cocaine addiction had begun to affect the entire family after Paul had stolen £1800 from his mum's work to feed his habit, with Irene being fired as a result.

Things spiralled completely out of control after the tattooed dad even "cut his finger off to get into hospital".

After his appearance, Jeremy wasted no time at all in sending Paul to a residential rehab centre in Leicester.

Looking happier and healthier Paul ventured back on stage, beaming like a completely new man.

His tearful mum Irene exclaimed: "It's the best thing that has ever happened. He's himself again. He'll never go back.

"It makes all the difference in the world. You gave me my son back."
