ITV has pulled down it’s most popular daytime show “The Jeremy Kyle Show” from the internet and has suspended filming after the reported suicide case on Tuesday of a former guest on the show.
The British talk show have been pulled off air indefinitely following the death of Steve Dymond, 63, a week after he appeared on an episode of the show.
According to reports, the show has been criticized overtime due to its confrontational style of handling feuds between romantic rivals and as a result leading to violence.
It was gathered that, the deceased, Dymond had failed a lie-detector test taken on the show to convince his fiancee he had not cheated on her, which led to the couple’s split up.
Speaking on the issue, Conservative MP Charles Walker said it would be best for the show to be put to a permanent stop.
“It’s a very, very unattractive TV show and I’m surprised it’s gone on so long,” he added.
However, the show, which attracts around one million viewers per episode, is hosted by former insurance salesman Kyle and has run since 2005 but as a result of the circumstances, all episodes have been wiped from the ITV hub and other episodes will not be airing.
