The controversial chat show host was sprayed while he was filming an episode of his series ‘The Kyle Files’ in the Majorcan resort focusing on the impact drinking is having on the lives of young people.

Jeremy says: “Walking down the street I think somebody sprayed pepper spray – it’s serious. Throat, eyes, coughing.
“We came here to talk about a drinking culture – lots of kids seemingly having fun. You get pepper spray sprayed in your face, just walking down the street. Okay, is that the camera? Is that because we’re trying to find out what its really like or does that happen every night If you get into an argument?”
The incident happened while Jeremy was part of a crowd walking down the strip in Magaluf trying to find out what a Friday night was really like there for those frequenting the bars and clubs along it. He suffered no injuries as a result.

Elsewhere in the episode, Jeremy speaks to police and ambulance services who clear up the aftermath of nights out in the UK, and uses undercover reporters to find out how straightforward it is to get served underage before confronting staff at the bars they go into with his evidence.
Other issues Jeremy tackles in the series include legal highs, knife crime, fake and dangerous goods, the cosmetic surgery industry, and the questionable methods used to get people to part with their money.
The latest episode of the series, Young Drinkers, features the pepper-spray incident and airs on ITV at 7.30pm tonight.
