The Jeremy Kyle Show permanently AXED following guest's death

Jeremy Kyle and Steven Dymond

Although the inquiry will look at the entire reality TV industry, ITV will be under particular scrutiny as the committee chose to set up the inquiry in response to incidents involving last week's death of Jeremy Kyle guest Steve Dymond, which prompted the cancellation of the long-running daytime chat show.

Today the channel pulled the plug on The Jeremy Kyle Show after the death of a guest, just a week after he'd failed a lie detector test on an episode about infidelity.

United Kingdom broadcaster ITV has permanently cancelled The Jeremy Kyle Show after the death of a guest.

McCall said the show had a loyal audience and had been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but it was the right time for it to end.

"ITV has made the right decision to permanently cancel the Jeremy Kyle Show", said Damian Collins, chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee.

Legal experts suggested Mr Dymond's family could sue ITV over his death as the programme had "a legal duty of care to protect him from foreseeable harm".

Jeremy returned to radio previous year with a weekly show on talkRADIO, but he presented his last show on March 30th 2019.

The show attracted around one million viewers per episode since it began in 2005.

There was talk of comebacks: She reportedly was offered "Murder, She Wrote" and the Debbie Reynolds role in "Mother" in 1996. Thankfully, in 1974, the actress won a $22.8 million judgment against her lawyer and business manager Jerome B.

Dymond apparently took a lie-detector test for the episode, filmed on May 2, in order to prove to Callaghan that he had not cheated on her.

"We often saw on the Jeremy Kyle show people who were vulnerable and while they may have entered the process willingly we need to look at what support they get; they (Jeremy Kyle) did have a system but reality shows need to look at whether far more should be done". Autopsy results would be needed to further determine the cause, and it's expected that an inquest will be opened.

"Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also chose to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect".

The broadcaster said the episode featuring the participant who died will be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event". I just wanted to say sorry before I go.

In 2007, a judge condemned "The Jeremy Kyle Show" as a "human form of bear baiting" following a guest on the show being convicted of assault.

Woolley spoke to his father for the first time in seven years following the appearance on the show after a relative contacted him, concerned over his father's emotional state.

Fans have been speculating that Trisha Goddard is set to replace The Jeremy Kyle Show after she appeared on Good Morning Britain this week talking about the struggle she has faced with her daughter and addiction. If it wasn't for Jeremy Kyle, I probably wouldn't be alive.
