The Jeremy Kyle Show could host its first wedding after a couple from Kent reconciled on the daytime TV programme.
A man known only as Ant appeared on the chatshow to confront his fiance Chelsea over rumours she had cheated on him while he was in prison.
He accused her of doing the dirty after finding out she had claimed to be in Canterbury when she was actually in Maidstone.
They featured in the episode, called "I refuse to marry a cheat - lie detector results!", of the controversial ITV show.
Ant told Jeremy: "Everyone's been saying she's been cheating on me. She says she hasn't.
"When I spoke to her she said she was in Canterbury, but she wasn't - she was in Maidstone. When I came out of prison, she was in Maidstone."
Ant also said his wife-to-be had deleted her Facebook account, destroyed her phone's sim card and had been meeting people in secret, adding, "until I know the truth, the wedding is off".
A tearful Chelsea - thought to be from Folkestone - was then brought onto the stage with her mother.
She told her fiance of nine months she did not visit him during his three-month stint because she does not like prisons.
Jeremy then stepped in to reveal the results of a lie detector test, which proved Chelsea had not been unfaithful.
The couple are seen to kiss and make-up - before inviting Jeremy to their impending nuptials and offer to have the ceremony live on the show.
Jeremy says: "It would be a first for the Jeremy Kyle show!"
After the broadcast, producers tweeted: "Ant and Chelsea have been getting on better than ever and say the show has been a positive result for them."
Others also took to Twitter to discuss Canterbury's mention on the show.
Celine McGee said: "Day off watching Jeremy Kyle and Canterbury gets mentioned! Haha!"
Jessica Trapmore added: "Canterbury has now been embarrassed to the max with Jeremy Kyle. We will live in shame today."
