Warning: This article discusses a suspected suicide and could be distressing to some readers.

 

The Jeremy Kyle Show has been permanently cancelled by British broadcaster ITV after a guest died shortly after filming.

All episodes of the programme from ITV's on-demand service have also been removed.

In a statement, ITV chief executive Carolyn McCall said: "Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

"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 said that it will continue to work with Kyle on other projects.

Grandfather Steven Dymond was found dead after failing a lie detector test and being "humiliated and traumatised" on the popular show.

The 62-year-old was said to be distraught after failing the test, designed to establish whether he had been faithful to his partner.

His landlady told the publication that he was "sobbing and distraught" when he returned home after filming the show on May 2.

She said he was relying on the show to reunite him with his girlfriend.

"All he did was talk about her," she said.

"Everything was about his girlfriend. He really admired and loved her to the core. He was like a lost puppy. He was desperate to prove himself."

The long-running talk show saw host Kyle help guests talk through their personal issues in front of a studio audience.

More than 3000 episodes of The Jeremy Kyle Show have been shown on British TV since July 2005.

The Jeremy Kyle Show screens in New Zealand on TVNZ2, weekdays at 12.30pm.
