MPs call for Jeremy Kyle Show to be axed after man's death

The Jeremy Kyle Show off the air indefinitely following death of guest

"The Jeremy Kyle Show has significant and detailed duty of care processes in place for contributors pre, during and post-show which have been built up over 14 years".

MPs have joined calls for the Jeremy Kyle Show to be taken off air for good, after the death of a man shortly after he appeared on the programme.

Filming and broadcasting of the programme was suspended while the review is being conducted.

"On reflection, ITV would be best advised just to stop it".

Steven Dymond filmed an episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show earlier this month.

The politician, who chairs the all-party Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, said a "proper independent review" was required into the duty of care policies carried out by shows which put "anonymous, private citizens" in the spotlight. "Certainly on our show these people are looked after very well".

Dymond failed a lie-detector test taken on the show to convince his fiancee he had not cheated on her, leading to the couple splitting up, The Sun newspaper reported.

The Jeremy Kyle Show is a modern day version of Christians being thrown to the lions and should never return to television, the president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists has said.

"It is 2019, we're in mental health awareness week, and I think it would be a very strong statement from ITV that actually, 'this is it, we're not going to be producing this type of show any more".

Your social media feeds were no doubt flooded by tributes to mothers everywhere via your mates and, of course, a bunch of celebs. Kanye West paid tribute to his late mother Donda West during his first live-steamed Sunday church service on Mother's Day.

"Clearly it would be totally unacceptable for a vulnerable person to be exploited in the making of the show, and then left to pick up the pieces by themselves".

Ms Callaghan said Mr Dymond had been "quietly struggling", but praised the show's team for their after-care efforts.

She told The Sun: 'They were brilliant. "They were really persistent in offering him help".

According to Sky News, Callaghan claimed that Dymond had actually convinced her of his fidelity just before they went on the show.

The company-wide message also stated that ITV Studios' managing director Julian Bellamy would travel to Manchester, where the talk show is filmed, to meet with the production team.

A celebrity edition of the show starring former X Factor contestant Christopher Maloney and ex-EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook was due to air on Tuesday, but will be rescheduled, according to both stars.

"We will not broadcast the episode featuring this guest at any point", a spokeswoman said.

The programme has had its regular daytime morning slot on ITV since 2005.

The mental health consequences of reality TV shows has been in the spotlight in Britain following the deaths of two contestants on hit show 'Love Island'.
