Talk show host Jerry Springer was shocked when he began filming his new British talks show, because his guests had fouler mouths than their US counterparts.

Springer's American chat show caused controversy due to the shocking behaviour of his guests, and he thought British guests would be milder, due to Americans' stereotypes of the English's 'stiff upper lip'.

Springer says, "I am amazed that every other word is f**king this or f**king that.

"Whatever happened to this fine British culture, the great British reserve?"
