A bouncer told yesterday how he pepper sprayed Jeremy Kyle in a Magaluf nightclub because the presenter was filming a documentary ‘portraying the resort in a bad way’.
Chat show star Kyle was shooting on the controversial holiday island after a video emerged of a teenage girl performing sex acts on 24 men during a boozy bar crawl.
But during the filming, nightclub bouncer, Leon, 40, from Romania blasted the star with the toxic mist outside Bonkers Bar on Saturday night.
The bouncer, who wished to keep his surname out of the story, said he would happily do it again as Kyle was making Magaluf look “sh*t”.
Speaking exclusively to the Tab, he said: “He was walking down the strip with camera making it look sh*t. He wasn’t showing the good side of Magaluf.
“I don’t like that sort of publicity – it’s not good. It’s been happening for a while now and it’s definitely not the way to promote a place. He ran away behind the corner.
“I don’t like the way he portrays the place. We’re like family here we clean everything and keep it that way.
“It’s actually a nice place to live which is why you find lots of families here with their kids being raised here.
“His show is only commercial rubbish, it’s not reality. I really don’t care about him or what anyone does to him.”
One reveller, who saw the attack happen, said: “Kyle was on the island filming god knows what.
“Suddenly outside of the window of my DJ booth I see a mass crowd and chanting going up the street.
“I look outside, and there’s a camera with a light facing someone and I realise its Jeremy Kyle.
“He’s being mobbed, then suddenly everyone disperses and I see people running away towards me and in all directions crying and coughing and saying it was tear gas.
“Then when I clarified with Leon, he said it was pepper spray.”
The famous TV host was spotted filming a Magaluf special for his ITV talk show in the wake of video footage where one girl performed sex acts on 24 men for a free drink.
A spokesperson for Jeremy Kyle, said: “Jeremy was walking around the strip with his film crew on Friday night when someone in the busy crowd sprayed the spray above their heads.
“They decided to vacate the area to be on the safe side, as the spray was starting to have an affect on the eyes.
“Jeremy wasn’t trying to get into the nightclub and wasn’t refused entry by a bouncer.
“He is filming in Magaluf for an upcoming series which is expected to run next year and one episode will focus on the youth culture in the area.”
