A guest on ‘Judge Rinder’ has revealed he was thrown off the show after launching himself at the show’s star.

Travis Simpkins, who gained notoriety after appearing on ‘Benefits Britain’ in 2015, was on the ITV daytime show for a second time when the incident occurred.

The teenager has claimed he kicked off when the Judge - real name Robert Rinder - brought up the fact his family were on benefits. 

Speaking to the Daily Star, Travis said security removed him from the studio, after he went for Robert.

Travis denied he was ever physically going to attack Robert, but did make a threat while being spoken to by producers. 

Travis appeared on the show - which has not yet aired - to sort out a dispute with his brother, who he claimed owed him money. 

Judge Rinder later ruled Travis should be awarded £2,000 of the £3,600 he was claiming for, but Travis has said he feels like he has “sold himself” to the programme, and has been left feeling like “a big t***”.

HuffPost UK has contacted an ITV spokesperson for comment. 

‘Judge Rinder’ airs weekdays at 2pm on ITV.
