He's often the seen in attack mode on one of his shows, but Jeremy Kyle was on the other end of the equation when he took part in a canine training exercise while filming an edition of The Kyle Files on the subject of dangerous dogs.

Kyle, who is said to be "terrified of dogs", pulled on a protective suit and agreed to face his fear as a Belgian Shepherd dog was set on him.

The clip is part of a programme in which Kyle investigates how dogs bred to attack are being used by gangs as weapons and by individuals as status symbols.

The Kyle Files: Dangerous Dogs is on ITV at 8pm tonight, Monday 20th March
