'Too real' for Springer

How much can American and British audiences stomach of taboo-breaking daytime tv? Whilst sitting down to happily munch on various crisp/potato-type snacks, with gainful employment being a million miles away, the average couch-surfer might put up with most risqué material to liven up the afternoon. But what about a chat show interviewing a real-life father & daughter couple?

TV executives for the now infamous Jerry Springer show deemed the ongoing intimate relationship between Britney and father Morgan, too risky to show as a feature in one of its broadcasts, Jezebel reveals.

The family members lost contact during difficulties occuring during Britney's childhood but ''thanks'' to popular peer-networking site, Myspace, the two were reunited and an attraction developed.

'The footage [of the couple on an alternative chat show]—which features Britney and her father, Morgan, in a deep French kiss when he first walks onto the stage—is disturbing to say the least, but apparently it gets worse.

'In the intro to the segment, Wilkos [the host] mentions that the couple 'provided proof' that they were in a sexual relationship, which one source tells us was 'video documentation' and that the 'dad had filmed it.'

Daytime tv will never be the same again!
