Kyle is now 14 and home schooled, so he can concentrate on his fighting.

The show on the W channel sees Stacey going to watch Kyle in a cage fighting competition - and questioning whether it is right to put your child in the cage at a young age.

The programme is repeated on W tonight (Thursday) from 9pm. It is the fourth programme in the series, Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over.
