A guest on Jeremy Kyle made the audience gasp when she forgot the number of fathers her six children had.
Carol, from Scotland, appeared on the show after her former partner George accused her having six children by five different men.
Carol – who is refusing to let George see his child – denied the allegation but only after she counted her kids’ dads on her fingers.
Carol, from Scotland, counted on her hand how many fathers there were to her six children after her ex accused her of having five dads to the children
Carol told the host: ‘No, it’s not true I’ve got six kids by five men thanks very much.’
But despite being defensive, when pressed by Jeremy she responded: ‘That’s nothing to do with you.’
But Jeremy asked again, she counted out on her fingers and even asked the host to ‘wait a minute’ while she did the maths.
And when she appeared to realise the figure was actually correct, she smirked to the host: ‘Aye, if that’s what you say so.’
The audience gasped and Twitter users were equally shocked, @MonsterousFrank commented: ‘How on earth do you get to the point where you don’t know how many of your children’s fathers there are.’
While@Sam197242 wrote: ‘When you have to count on your fingers the fathers of your kids,’ with a laughing emoji.
@Rormark2013 was equally surprised he she could lose count of ‘how many fathers.’
Carol and her former boyfriend started with a fiery argument when she came on-stage, a security guard and Jeremy Kyle were needed to separate them.
Although Carol denied it at first, she appeared to realise it might be true she has five dads to six children and told Jeremy it was none of his business
The audience appeared shocked while viewers were also taken aback by her counting the number of fathers on her hand
Carol claimed she did not stop George from seeing his 10-year-old daughter and in fact he was not interested because he had a new girlfriend.
Carol also claimed George was drinking and putting that above their child.
She said he had moved two hours away with his new girlfriend Val – who Carol called a ‘fat mess.’
While George claimed it was down to jealousy of his new girlfriend and Carol’s accusations that he had cheated during their relationship.
George’s neighbour Mark supported George saying he was a ‘great father.’
Carol had brought George onto the show so that he could have a lie detector test as she believed he cheated during their relationship.
It was Carol herself who asked for the test to be done because she was convinced she was right – and shouted ‘yes’ and punched the air when she was proved correct.

Carol believed her ex had cheated and he had a lie detector test – which found he’d lied about not having an affair and still refused to let him see his daughter
The lie detector test revealed he cheated on her and Carol called it a ‘relief for me.’
George’s sister also backed up Carol’s claims saying that George had ‘let her down time and time again saying he’d be there and do things and just didn’t.
She said: ‘He put drink and his girlfriend before the bairn time and time again. I love him but he needs to take responsibility for his own actions.’
Carol was still adamant she did not want George to see their child even if he took the case to caught.
She responded ‘tough’ and walked off stage.
George replied he would wait there ‘until I get access.’
The Jeremy Kyle show Twitter account confirmed Carol is still refusing to let George see his child, George will continue to fight for rightful access
