'Devastated' Jeremy Kyle breaks silence as show is axed after guest's death

ITV 's CEO Dame Carolyn McCall said in a statement on Wednesday morning: "Given the gravity of recent events we have made a decision to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show".

The episode in which Dymond appeared had been to due to air this Monday but was pulled at the last minute.

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". They didn't call up people in middle-class places, presumably because of the assumption that middle-class people need to be bribed with a lot more than a nice hotel to air their dirty laundry in public.

"What happened with the man who took his own life - honestly I'm not surprised".

Is this view based on a thorough behind-the-scenes look at the screening of the applicants for the show, the quality of mental healthcare they received from its four dedicated staff, their behavior before and after?

ITV previously announced it would not screen the episode in which Dymond appeared.

Although ITV confirmed that the episode featuring the deceased guest will not be aired, many fans have been calling for the show to be taken off air.

Ms Callaghan said that just before they went on the show, Mr Dymond had convinced her he had not cheated. "They've had what they want out of you, you've been used and abused an that's it".

Following the episode's filming, Steve Dymond and Jane Callaghan split up, and their impending marriage was called off. Callaghan said that Dymond was "quietly struggling".

It follows the suspected suicide of grandfather Stephen Dymond, 63, who was distraught after failing a lie test on the show and told relatives Kyle had "really laid into him".

It's the same as saying the show exploited people who have two arms or exploited people who eat sandwiches - technically it's probably correct but it's very misleading.

One wrote: "The fact they cut #jeremykyleshow and replaced it with dickinsons real deal is outrageous".

A long-running British talk show has been canceled after a guest died by suicide following the disastrous results of a lie detector test.

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

The show, which is watched by about 1 million people, has been criticised for broadcasting the traumas of its guests. ITV is already reviewing the level of support offered to Love Island contestants, ahead of the highly profitable show's return next month.
