ITV says an announcement about which show will replace the Jeremy Kyle Show will be made in due course.

Following the announcement that the Jeremy Kyle Show had been permanently cancelled and pulled from the ITV daytime schedule, speculation has been rife about which show will replace it.

At the moment, Dickinson’s Real Deal is being broadcast from 9.25am to 10.30am.

However, as David Dickinson’s show usually airs in the afternoon, it is not known whether the antiques themed programme will permanently move to the earlier slot.

There also been calls for Trisha Goddard to make a return to ITV with her chat show, Trisha.

Goddard initially held the chat show post on ITV from 1998 to 2004, before moving over to Channel 5 to make way for the Jeremy Kyle Show.

Trisha came to an end on Channel 5 in 2010.

Other suggestions from viewers have included chat shows with Loose Women star Christine Lampard or This Morning’s Vanessa Feltz.

Due to the reason behind ITV’s decision to axe the Jeremy Kyle Show, some social media users came up with the idea of creating a special show to help people suffering from mental health issues.

“An even better thing for ITV to do would be to spend the money and resources telling the real stories of people with mental health issues sensitively and honestly,” wrote one.

Another commented: “You know what would be a great replacement for the Jeremy Kyle show? A show that offers real world advice for those suffering from mental health issues.”

Whilst viewers wait to find out which show will be replacing the Jeremy Kyle Show, a number of well-known faces have jumped to Jeremy Kyle’s defence.

“As everyone piles on Jeremy Kyle, I'd like to say he's a great guy, an excellent broadcaster, and hugely popular with the vast majority of people who watched & appeared (voluntarily) on his top-rated show. So much snobbery & hypocrisy being spewed by his critics,” Piers Morgan tweeted.

Danniella Westbrook, who appeared as a guest on the Jeremy Kyle Show, defended the show when she told the Sun Online: “The team including Jeremy himself were in constant contact with me throughout, making sure I was OK and since leaving the rehab, they have continued to be in touch and I have felt fully supported throughout.”
