Gran tattoos Jeremy Kyle on her back

A grandmother has got a giant tattoo of talk show host Jeremy Kyle.

It took Viv Bodycote, 61, six-and-a-half hours to have an image of the chat show embracing security guard Steve inked on to her upper back.

She says she has watched the daytime TV show every day for 14 years, and said she wanted the tat as a tribute to "friendship".

Former teaching assistant Viv said: "I absolutely love it. It's the only one where I sat down for a straight without any food or drink.

"At the end of it my neck and back killed.

"But it was completely worth it.

"I got it because I think it says a lot about friendship. There's no Jeremy without Steve.

"They have an incredible bond.

"He portrays himself out to be this arrogant man but there is a sensitive, kind nature to him otherwise he wouldn't do that type of show.

"When I show it to people see it they just say 'Wow'.

"It's just a shame I had it done in the winter as I'd love to show it off all the time.

"I can't wait to get it out in the summer."

Viv, from Earl Shilton in Leicestershire, already has numerous tattoos dedicated to Jose Mourinho.
