A British chat show host was left gobsmacked when one of his guests picked him up and ran around with him on stage.

Jeremy Kyle had just delivered the news the man’s girlfriend had passed a lie detector test — proving she hadn’t cheated — which caused him to jump for joy and grab the famous host in the process.

Michael — who had gone on the show after his partner Tracy started behaving “suspiciously” — is elated with the evidence she’s never been unfaithful and picks up the 52-year-old and spins him around.

But judging from the look on Jeremy’s face, it wasn’t as fun as he was expecting and the hilarious footage is now doing the rounds on social media.

The 52-year-old then picks up Tracy, who runs into his arms happily while Michael takes aim at a camera man.

It’s pure spontaneous TV and fans were loving it on Twitter.

“Jeremy Kyle just gets funnier and funnier,” one said, while another pointed out he probably “didn’t want to be touched”.

The Jeremy Kyle Show is best known for his wild and unpredictable guests, as people appear specifically to thrash out their conflicts, dramas and relationship troubles in front of a live studio audience.

This episode certainly didn’t disappoint.
