When talking about his original ITV show, Judge Rinder, in which he judges cases brought by members of the public, the judge, 38, insisted it is “all real” and he only deals with “authentic cases”.

He also explained that he doesn’t try and make the show funny for TV.

He told hosts Holly and Phil: “I’m not pretending when I’m in that court.

“I really mean it. When I shut the door there is no part of me that cares one jot whether or not this will be funny for telly. I don’t care about that.

“I’m dealing with authentic cases and the other thing about it, I don’t care about people’s background, I don’t care whether they’re frankly clever, fat, thin or whatever, it’s what people do that matters.”

The new series of Crime Stories is set to see the barrister tackle famous cases including frauds, miscarriages of justice and murders.

The show will investigate crimes with reenactments and interviews with the victims’ families.

Talking about the new series Robert said: “The reality is that when you’re a barrister you’re trained and you’ve got ethical structures, you’ve got to follow the evidence and that’s that.

“You guys as journalists must be affected by the things you see and you build up a degree of immunity to it all. It’s just another case but you’ll be surprised by the things that affect you.”

The show has returned this week starting June 5 and will show five episodes all airing at 2pm on ITV.

The ordinary Judge Rinder show continues to entertain and amuse viewers with some of its bizarre cases.

Back in March viewers slammed a pregnant guest over her shameful behaviour.

Lindsay shocked viewers after revealing she was still smoking cigarettes despite being heavily pregnant.

Lindsay appeared on the show after her cousin Katie accused her of not paying back money she borrowed.
