The Jeremy Kyle Show has been pulled from TV schedules today because a guest died shortly after filming.
ITV viewers were surprised to see the popular chat show replaced by a rerun of Dickinson’s Real Deal on Monday morning, but it emerged that bosses had decided not to air the episode out of respect for the guest.
The show is said to have ceased filming until a review of the episode can be carried out, so the programme will be off air indefinitely.
A spokesperson for ITV said: “Everyone at ITV and The Jeremy Kyle Show is shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant in the show a week after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their family and friends.
“ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured.
“Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect in order to give it time to conduct a review of this episode of the show.”
