THE END? MPs called for Jeremy Kyle to be permanently axed after the death of Steven Dymond

"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", she wrote.

The controversial talk show was pulled from the air earlier this week after it emerged that guest Steven Dymond, 63, had died soon after filming his segment in which he reportedly failed a lie detector test over alleged infidelity.

"Given the gravity of recent events we have made a decision to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show", McCall said.

"The Jeremy Kyle Show has significant and detailed duty of care processes in place for contributors pre, during and post-show which have been built up over 14 years".

News of Mr Dymond's death prompted an outcry and ITV has been urged to end the confrontational programme for good. Especially since The Jeremy Kyle Show has been criticized in the past for producers not giving the emotionally vulnerable guests the proper care and attention needed.

Aston Villa into playoff final after shootout win over West Brom
Villa, relegated in 2016, will hope to avoid a repeat of past year when they lost to Fulham in the playoff final. Their second leg is on Wednesday, with Leeds protecting a 1-0 lead at their Elland Road home.

The show, which attracts around one million viewers per episode, is hosted by former insurance salesman Kyle and has run since 2005. "Presumably that was at the point when they announced the lie detector result".

A particularly tragic story has emerged out of the U.K.in the past week concerning the popular daily talk show The Jeremy Kyle Show, which is akin to USA talk shows hosted by Maury Povich and Jerry Springer. Episodes will not air on ITV2.

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.

Also on Tuesday, Sir Simon Wessely, who was president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists until 2017, described the show as "the theatre of cruelty".

The broadcaster said the episode featuring the participant who died will be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event".

US Treasury Chief to Plan for Trade Meeting in China Soon
The tweets come after the US last week began increasing tariffs from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion of Chinese goods. China retaliated on Monday with tariffs on $60bn of U.S. imports, precipitating a dive on the USA stock markets.

A lot has changed in 24 hours. In the past 24 hours, the evidence has grown that his appearance on the show had a devastating impact on Steve Dymond.

"It's hard, with so many shows on television, to know how you could stop any risk really of any side effects of a negative way of people who would appear on television".

All previous episodes have been taken down from the channel's catch-up service, ITV Hub.

"This decision is not in any way a reflection on the show, but the best way we think we can protect the show and the production team from this reaction we expect to this death", she continued.
