The Jeremy Kyle Show has been axed by ITV after the death of a guest who took part in the programme.

Steven Dymond was found dead on 9 May a week after filming the show, during which he took a lie detector test.

Carolyn McCall, ITV's CEO, said: "Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show."

ITV had initially suspended filming, and the prime minister's spokesman called the death "deeply concerning".

"Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show," McCall said.

"The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.

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

The broadcaster added: "The previously announced review of the episode of the show is under way and will continue.

"ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects."

The pre-recorded episode Mr Dymond took part in was based on the subject of infidelity.

A member of the audience who was at the recording told BBC News that Mr Dymond "collapsed to the ground" and was "sobbing" when he failed the lie detector test.

Lie detectors were a regular fixture on the programme, which often featured disputes between partners and family members.

Critics said it put vulnerable people, often with issues of addiction and mental health, on a public platform - bringing them a level of exposure they may not have expected.

The show was the most popular programme in ITV's daytime schedule, with an average of one million viewers and a 22% audience share.

On Tuesday, Charles Walker MP, a member of the all-party parliamentary group on suicide and self-harm prevention, told BBC News that Mr Dymond's death was a "watershed moment".

He said: "Societally, we have a responsibility for why this TV is made, it's a reflection of ourselves that it has been made and so many people watch it.

"It's cruel and there's enough cruelty in the world without showing it on TV."

On Wednesday, Sir Simon Wessely, who was president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists until 2017, described the show as "the theatre of cruelty".

After Mr Dymond's death, ITV suspended filming and took all planned episodes off the air, adding that the episode featuring Mr Dymond would never be screened.

All previous episodes have been taken down from the channel's catch-up service, ITV Hub. Episodes will not air on ITV2 either.

A spokeswoman for Portsmouth coroner's office said an inquest into Mr Dymond's death would be likely to be opened within the next few days, following the result of the post-mortem investigation.
So The Jeremy Kyle Show is essentially Britain's answer to Jerry Springer, with more focus on white trash and less on midgets or The Klan and it's always claimed to have decent aftercare for its victims, in this case it seems a guest was legit destroyed by his appearance and may have offed himself (post-mortem hasn't come through yet)

The real question is, what will scuzzy chavs do to make themselves feel better now?

If I ever went on one of those shitty "yell at your girlfriend" shows, I'd wait for a lull in the niggery, immediately drop trou and start pissing everywhere.

Like if I'm at such a low point in my life that I want to go on TV and get publicly cucked over who ate the last box of Cheezits, I might as well piss on national television, y'know?

Lie detectors do not work. They measure nervous impulses in the body. The only strength of the device is to force a confession out of a dumbass that thinks they've been caught. Court of public opinion has successfully executed a person, well done.
Not even that, the episode with the cadaver hadn't aired yet, not will it ever.

What makes this story sadder is that there are millions of people (generally Kyle's fanbase) who take the results of lie detector tests as gospel and see Jeremy Kyle as some sort of genius because "he says it like it is".

Kyle's main issue is that he sees everything in black and white terms. If you're unemployed (even if it's not your fault, i.e. redundancy) Kyle sees it as an excuse to shout at you for being lazy.

If you ever want to see no finer example of British teeth, watch this show.

Nervous impulses...like being asked questions while strapped up to a device meant to "detect lies". There is a reason polygraphs are not admissible evidence in court, it's because they are garbage.

Anyone who willingly goes onto this show...idk what they were expecting.
