JUDGE Rinder deals with a variety of cases, but viewers wonder who foots the bill for legal awards.
You'd think it might be the person that "loses" the case, but this isn't how the show works.
Who pays out the compensation on Judge Rinder?
Any awarding amounts up to £5,000 issued by Judge Rinder are lawfully enforced.
These arbitration awards are paid for by the production company, not the person who loses the case.
Back in 2017 it emerged that two people who had appeared on the show – Sam Horner and Paul Brewster – faked a row after realising the show paid for fees.
Andy McEwan, who appeared on the show in 2015 to battle his ex-partner, told the Daily Star that the show is a "farce" because of how the payments are made.
How does Judge Rinder's show work?
Judge Rinder is an arbitration show – so Judge Rinder arbitrates between civil cases and decides a "winner" and a "loser".
The claimant stands to Rinder's left and the plaintiff to his right.
The bailiff of the show is Michelle Hassan, whose job it is to pass evidence and escort witnesses to and from the courtroom.
After both parties have presented their cases Rinder decides on an outcome.
Rinder is known for his no nonsense approach and rigorous cross-examination abilities.
He has has said that he applies the law seriously and makes "real legal rulings."
He also dealt with real life court cases in his ITV series Crime Stories.
Where is Judge Rinder's courtroom?
Judge Rinder is filmed in a studio, not a real courtroom.
It's based in Media City, Salford, Manchester.
If you want to be an audience member you have to apply on the ITV website.
The show is 45 minutes long including adverts.
The courtroom is decked out much like an American one, with flags and a gavel – two fictional props as they are not used in British courtrooms.
