The Jeremy Kyle Show has been axed by ITV after the death of a guest who took part in the programme.
Steven Dymond was found dead on 9 May a week after filming the show, during which he took a lie detector test.
Carolyn McCall, ITV’s CEO, said: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.”
ITV had initially suspended filming, and the prime minister’s spokesman called the death “deeply concerning”.
ITV’s statement in full:
“Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show,” McCall said.
“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.”
The broadcaster added: “The previously announced review of the episode of the show is under way and will continue.
“ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.”
ITV had already suspended both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show, adding that the episode featuring Mr Dymond would never be screened.
A spokeswoman for Portsmouth coroner’s office said an inquest into Mr Dymond’s death would be likely to be opened within the next few days, following the result of the post-mortem investigation.
The show was the most popular programme in ITV’s daytime schedule, with an average of one million viewers and a 22% audience share.
On Wednesday, a former president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists described it as “the theatre of cruelty”.
All previous episodes have been taken down from the channel’s catch-up service, ITV Hub. Episodes will not air on ITV2 either.
