About one million people watched The Jeremy Kyle Show every day

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”.
