The Jeremy Kyle Show suspended indefinitely after guest's tragic death

The popular ITV show was pulled off air today and suspended indefinitely after a guest passed away shortly after filming. He participated in a lie detector test in a bid to prove that allegations he had cheated on fiance Jane Callaghan were not true.

Ms Callaghan told The Sun that she and Mr Dymond had got engaged on Christmas day in 2017.

"He wanted to go on,"...

Upon trying to access previous 'Jeremy Kyle' episodes on the ITV Hub's website, a message reads: "The page you're looking for can't be found".

Cadwalladr shared a piece she wrote in 2008 about the programme and said she was "amazed it took this long" for the show to have such grave effects on its subjects.

United Kingdom media regulator Ofcom said the show had failed to prevent the distress and humiliation of a 17-year-old guest in 2014, while in 2017 a judge branded it a "human form of bear baiting" after a man was convicted of assaulting another participant on stage.

It is not known the contents of the episode the participant took part in.

Due to the "seriousness" of the event, ITV said a review would be conducted into the episode.

The broadcaster released a statement stating they are "shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant".

It is unclear at this point if or when the show will return.

The former "EastEnders" actress and "X Factor" star were due to appear on tomorrow's (14.05.19) episode, but Chris has confirmed it will air "at a later date".
