Jeremy Kyle Show cancelled by ITV – RTE.ie


ITV has announced that it has ended production of the Jeremy Kyle Show permanently.

The broadcaster had been urged to cancel the show after the sudden death of a man who failed a lie-detector test on the controversial programme.

The confrontational talk show was pulled off the air indefinitely following the death of 63-year-old Steve Dymond, a week after the programme was filmed.

The episode had been due to air on Monday.

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.”

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