Jeremy Kyle show staff tipped off police about a child neglect case.

A 23-year-old woman and her partner, 26, had their two kids looked after by staff as they got a grilling from Kyle during a recording last year, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

They became concerned about the children’s welfare, who were aged under two at the time.

Staff noticed the toddlers smelt strongly of faeces and urine and tipped off police.

The following day officers swooped on their home and were shocked by what they discovered.

The couple, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the children, were arrested and charged with child neglect offences which they later admitted.

On Tuesday at Coventry Crown Court they were sentenced to 12 months in jail, suspended for two years.

 

During the case, Judge Philip Gregory said the overweight couple were ‘not stingy with their own portions’.

He told the defendants: ‘You had the care of two very young and vulnerable children. This was an enormous privilege.

‘You were responsible to discharge that care carefully and properly so that these two children were well looked after, properly fed, kept warm and kept clean.

‘Over a period of at least two months you failed immeasurably to fulfill that responsibility to these two children.

‘As a consequence your home was visited and was found to be, quite frankly, disgusting.

‘The two children were not properly clothed, you had let them get too cold, you hadn’t fed them properly and you hadn’t washed them.’
