Jeremy Kyle mocked a male guest on his show today who claimed he was sexually assaulted.
Hugo, who was there to prove he wasn’t a cheat to girlfriend Sophie, said he was fixing a washing machine pipe when their mutual friend pulled his trousers down and started touching him inappropriately.
The audience began laughing as Hugo claimed the woman masturbated him for two minutes before he made her stop because he "wasn’t expecting it".
Presenter Jeremy egged on the crowd and began ridiculing Hugo himself, insisting that he should have "walked away",
But viewers were quick to point out that people do freeze in such awful situations and that it would be no laughing matter if the roles were reversed.

Hugo explained: "She told me to do the pipe in the machine. She took my trousers off and touched me inaporopaitely."
Trying to establish what went on, giggling Jeremy said: "You’re doing her pipes and she walks up behind you and removes your trousers. Takes your boxer shorts down and then what?"
The presenter revealed that Hugo had told his team that she "started to masturbate" him for two minutes.
Questioning the victim, Jeremy said: "The woman, without you saying ‘don’t be ridiculous’, she took your boxers off, got your bits in her hand for two minutes before you said ‘this is wrong’.
"Two minutes,. You’re telling me you’re standing with your d*** out and letting her touch you for two minutes? If it was anybody they would have walked away."
Hugo claimed he was sexually assaulted
Defending his actions, Hugo replied: "I don’t know I wasn’t expecting it."
Jeremy then claimed the "best bit" was that she then offered Hugo £20 to perform an oral sex act on her, which he said ‘no’ to.
After jokingly apologising to fellow ITV presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, Jeremy said: "Having played with your private parts for two minutes she offered you a value of money, £20, to perform an oral sex act on her."
Hugo’s mother-in-law Janine, who did not believe his account of the events, stormed on stage and started calling him a liar.
Agreeing with her, Jeremy added: "Quite why anyone would wait two minutes."
Viewers were not happy with Jeremy
The lie detector results proved Hugo was lying and did cheat on Sophie, having a kiss, sexual contact and sexual intercourse with another woman.
However, there was no proof that Hugo was lying about the specific incident in question.
Furious The Jeremy Kyle Show viewers took to Twitter to slam the presenter.
One viewer said: "Come on if it was the other way around they wouldnt be asking why she let him for 2 minutes. People freeze you know."
Another added: "Man being sexually assaulted and raped… typical #JeremyKyle audience laughs and shames… how typical… ugh"feminism….
A third asked: "He got a 2 min pull of someone but didn’t want it. Isn’t that sexual assault"
