The Jeremy Kyle Show off the air indefinitely following death of guest

A leaked email from ITV bosses has revealed The Jeremy Kyle Show has been suspended to "protect its future" in the wake of the suspected suicide of a guest who failed a lie detector test while filming an episode.

Episodes will not be shown on ITV2 either.

Charles Walker, who is the vice chair of the all-parliamentary group on suicide and self-harm prevention, branded the programme "inhumane" and called for it to be ended permanently.

Jeremy Kyle show suspended indefinitely after guest dies following filmingMr Dymond took a lie-detector test to convince fiance Jane Callaghan he had not been unfaithful but they split after he failed, according to The Sun.

Ther pro-Kyle caller is realistic though, pointing out: "Of course" the show uses people like that for ratings, but that they are still helping people. It's perhaps not what I think is good television.

Morgan discussed the issue with Lord Alan Sugar, who detailed The Apprentice's extensive aftercare programme before adding: The Jeremy Kyle Show is a different kettle of fish, unfortunately. "As human beings with their own family, perhaps now they will decide this too can't continue.".

While MP Damian Collins, chairman of the Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said TV companies "have a duty to care to the people who take part in their programmes".

In an email to ITV staff, chief executive Carolyn McCall explained why the show was taken down: "This was a very hard decision to make but we felt that it would be inappropriate to continue to broadcast the show when a participant on It has so recently died". "It's an archaic kind of show, it probably was when it was first commissioned, but now it seems very out of step with our attitude with mental health issues".

Ms Callaghan said Mr Dymond had been "quietly struggling", but praised the show's team for their after-care efforts.

She told The Sun: 'They were brilliant. And I don't think really it's very good for society, to have people who are vulnerable, driven to the point where they do blow up publicly on television.

She told The Sun the pair split up after the show, reportedly filmed on May 2, and last saw him four days later before Mr Dymond was found dead.

They continued: "Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also chose 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".

Katie Hopkins has also waded in on the topic by posting statistics of both shows side by side, comparing the number of episodes versus the number of deaths from each.

The broadcaster said the episode featuring the participant who died will be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event". Known for confrontation, it is the most popular programme on ITV's daytime schedule, with an average of one million viewers.
