Judge Rinder has graced our screens for some time now but you can never get bored of his antics in the courtroom as he attempts to seek justice to those who deserve it.
The popular day-time TV show is back on air this month on ITV with fans eagerly awaiting their favourite judge’s return.
Robert Rinder is not one to mince his words – once berating a defendant for calling his friend a ‘cocky b******’ in court and the latest episodes are unlikely to disappoint.
But one thing fans of the show often want to know is whether the outcomes of the court matters are actually legit.
Are the cases in Judge Rinder legally binding?

Judge Rinder is a practicing criminal law barrister who was called to the bar in 2001 after graduating with a double first in politics, modern history and art at Manchester University.
Despite his sharp wit and hilarious shaming of participants on the show, his review of the cases are very much legally binding.
Sums up to £5,000 awarded by Judge Rinder are lawfully enforced.
But, in good news for those participating on the show, these bills are actually paid by the show itself, rather than the defendant who does not receive a fee to appear on the show.

Despite wearing judges’ robes in the show, Rinder is not a member of the Judiciary – and this is made clear.
The show is not filmed in a real courtroom, but on a set at Dock10’s studios in Media City, Salford, Manchester.
