ITV has revealed the Jeremy Kyle show has been permanently cancelled.

It comes after the death of a guest who appeared on the show last week.

Carolyn McCall, ITV’s CEO, said: "Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

"The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.

“Everyone at ITV's thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steve Dymond."

ITV says the previously announced review of the episode of the show is underway and will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.
