'The Jeremy Kyle Show' Cancelled By ITV After Death Of Guest

'The Jeremy Kyle Show' Cancelled By ITV After Death Of Guest

Britain's long-running tabloid show, "The Jeremy Kyle Show" has been cancelled after a guest that appeared on the show tragically died.

"Given the gravity of recent events we have chose to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show", Chief Executive Carolyn McCall said on Wednesday.

DCMS committee chairman Damian Collins said: "ITV has made the right decision to permanently cancel The Jeremy Kyle Show".

"Everyone at ITV's thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friend of Steve Dymond".

The Jeremy Kyle Show guest who died days after recording the episode reportedly split from his partner following an attempt to prove he was not a cheat.

He could be gearing up to move his show to the likes of Channel 5, which has a history of scooping up former ITV stars, or to launch his own programme with the help of his newly incorporated production company.

The cancellation of the show comes after Steve Dymond, a guest on the show, committed suicide following an appearance in which he failed a lie detector test.

For their experience, Jane Callaghan said that the Jeremy Kyle producers were "brilliant" and that for Dymond in particular, they were "really persistent in offering him help".

It's a debate that has raged, off and on, for close to two decades since Britain began making home-grown equivalents of sensationalist US programs like The Jerry Springer Show and putting ordinary people under a microscope on reality shows such as Big Brother.

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.

After the Monday show had been pulled, a review was carried out.

Simon Wessely, a former head of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, said shows like Jeremy Kyle were "the theatre of cruelty".

The next series of Love Island will return to air in the next couple of weeks.

MPs on the select committee will meet this afternoon to discuss whether to have a formal inquiry.

When you agree to appear in anything from a soundbite to a lifelong documentary you become a tool in the hands of those who write, film and edit the program.

Mr Dymond was found dead at his Portsmouth flat by his landlady, who criticised Kyle, saying: 'He has not even come forward and said he's sorry'.

In June past year, a former priest from Eastry in the county and his young husband appeared on an episode of Jeremy Kyle.

The presenter is yet to personally comment on the show's cancellation.

They've since reconciled but are living apart.
