'World's most jealous woman' makes husband take lie detector test every time he comes home

'World's most jealous woman' makes husband take lie detector test every time he comes home

He can't even pick his own TV programmes to watch.

A little bit of jealousy is a natural emotion in any relationship, but some people take it to some serious extremes.

One of those people is the self-confessed 'world's most jealous woman', who revealed she used to make her husband take a lie detector test every time he returned home.

"When you've got a good man, you're not going to let him go, are ya?" Debbi Wood, then 44, told This Morning host Phillip Schofield back in 2015.

"But aren't you going to frighten him off?" Schofield asked.

"I don't think I could frighten him off if I tried," Debbi asserted.

This prompted her husband Steve, then 32, to say that there was no danger of that happening 'any time soon' as if he was going to run away from his paranoid wife, he'd have done it already.

Explaining how his wife keeps tabs on him, Steve said that the lie detectors happen 'once in a blue moon' although they were once used by Debbi quite frequently to be sure he hadn't cheated.

It was then that Schofield brought up the fact that Steve isn't even allowed to watch what he wants on TV because of the risk of him seeing other women.

Steve explained that he only liked to watch sport, especially Formula One, so it didn't really matter to him. The host then mentioned that there are a lot of 'gorgeous girls' there, which prompted Debbi to nod.

"Were you stopped from watching women on the television?" Schofield asked specifically. "You were even stopped from watching Anne Robinson?"

Debbi then clarified that she doesn't have a problem with her husband appreciating a woman's beauty, but she does have an issue with her husband fantasising about sleeping with them - so she decided to remove all temptation from his path.

Schofield pointed out apparent double standards in the relationship and revealed that Debbi told him he was looking lovely before the interview.

"Why can you do it and he can't?" he asked.

Needless to say, Debbi did not have an answer

Debbi's jealousy isn't as irrational as it might seem, however.

She's been diagnosed with what's known as Othello syndrome, which according to the National Library of Medicine, causes a person to become convinced that their partner has been unfaithful.

The condition is also sometimes referred to as pathological jealousy, and treatment options include cognitive behavioural therapy and medication.
