Paul and Lee met online and started a relationship, but were left devastated by DNA results revealed on the Jeremy Kyle Show
This is the shock moment two gay lovers were left devastated when they found out they’re brothers.
Paul met boyfriend Lee via internet dating and started a relationship after quickly falling for each other.
Paul had been taken into care at 18 months and adopted aged three.
The pair had chatted online for two and a half years before meeting in real life and have been an item since November.
Lee introduced Paul to his mother and step-father and the family got on well – though people noticed that Paul shared some of the same features of Lee’s mum’s ex-husband Ron.
It then emerged that Paul also shared the same surname as Ron, and that Lee had a half-brother he never knew about.
Lee and Paul appeared on the Jeremy Kyle show see the results of a DNA test – and were distraught to find out they’re actually related.
The episode they appeared on was aired again as part of the Jeremy Kyle Show’s 10th anniversary.
In the show, Kyle asks them: ‘You are having a physical sexual relationship with a man that you love and want to marry and at some point somebody might tell you that he could be your half brother – what does that do to you?
Lee answers: ‘It makes me sick. It makes me basically horrible. I can’t describe it.’
Kyle eventually reveals the results of the test, telling them that Ena is mother to both of them.
He tells the pair: ‘You were in a physical relationship – how do you switch that emotional feeling off? Have you given it any thought?’
They both tell him: ‘Not at the moment.’
The episode originally aired in 2012, and host Kyle says the pair are still in touch now.
