Jeremy Kyle viewers were left in a state of shock by the actions of a guest on the latest episode of the ITV2 show.
Steph appeared on the show on Wednesday’s show to defend herself after her son, Nathan demanded she choose between her family or her partner.
What made the story more shocking was that Steph’s boyfriend had previously been convicted of a number of child abuse offences.
In fear of his safety, Steph’s partner was kept behind a screen during the show, but Jeremy grew furious when his convictions were revealed.
“If it was down to me, I’d plaster his face everywhere!” said the angry host.
Jezza shouted: “What are you thinking? How do you pick a convicted paedophile over your own son?
“This is a man who’s on the sex offenders list for life.
“What would you do if you came downstairs and he was with your granddaughter?”
Viewers rushed to social media to condemn Steph’s actions.
“How a mother or any women be with a paedo is beyond me. It’s the one thing in life I cant deal with,” said one fan.
While a second added: “I cannot bear this woman. How can you defend a paedo? How can this woman expose her kids to such a monster?”
Despite her son’s wishes, Steph walked off at the end of the show and insisted that she would be staying with her partner.
Steph’s boyfriend, whose name and identity could not be revealed in order to protect his victim, was sentenced to seven years in prison for the attempted rape of a child.
He was later sent back to jail after he breached the terms of his licence, and was given a suspended sentence for having extreme pornography on his phone.
The man also failed to sign the sex offenders register, which led to him being sent back to jail for 11 months.
Jeremy Kyle airs weekdays on ITV2.
