Jeremy Kyle has been lying low at luxury golf resort owned by millionaire pal since show was axed

JEREMY Kyle has been lying low at a luxury golf resort owned by his millionaire pal as controversy rages on over his axed ITV show.

The outspoken presenter was spotted playing at secluded Close House in Northumberland this week.


Keen golfer Kyle, 53, was spotted by several guests at the stunning site, which is owned by his millionaire pal, businessman Graham Wylie.

Staff said the close friends had enjoyed rounds together at the lavish hotel, which boasts two top-of-the-range 18-hole courses set in the majestic rolling Tyne Valley.

Kyle has been a regular at the premier golf resort in recent years.

But the ex-ITV star has kept a low profile since bosses binned his show in May after the suspected suicide of guest Steve Dymond.

LUXURY HIDEAWAY

One Twitter user posted on Sunday: "Weird day at golf today – 4 putted from 10 ft, chatted to Jeremy Kyle on the fairway then saw a matte grey Bentley 4×4.

"Normal few hours at Close House."

A luxury twin room at the golfing paradise's hotel costs up to £204 a night in August with green fees for non-members costing £75 or £150 on the courses.

Computing millionaire Mr Wylie lives in a gated Grade-II listed mansion at the golfing destination, which is popular with celebrities, including Ant and Dec, and Alan Shearer.

A framed photo on the club house wall shows Kyle with Boyzone singer Ronan Keating.

KYLE PAY DAY

In another snap, Kyle is pictured with Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson, next to photos of other stars who have played at Close House, including ex-footballers Alan Hansen and Kenny Dalglish and actor James Nesbitt.

In January 2019, Kyle was named patron of leading north east children's charity the Graham Wylie Foundation.

Mr Wylie, 59 founded the charity in 2015 to care for vulnerable and underprivileged kids.

Meanwhile, Kyle is set to trouser more than £500,000 from winding down a media company used for his pay from the axed show.

He reportedly pocketed a £3 million payout.

Following the decision to scrap his controversial show, Kyle said he was "utterly devastated".

Kyle refused to give evidence to a parliamentary inquiry into reality TV.

This week, a mum who appeared on the show with her violent boyfriend was found after vanishing three weeks ago with their newborn baby.

Dymond, 63, who failed a love-cheat lie detector test and died days later of a suspected drug overdose, was buried in a pauper's funeral in front of just five mourners in June.

He left three suicide notes, none of which blamed the programme.
