The internet reacts to the cancellation of ITV’s Jeremy Kyle Show

The Jeremy Kyle Show has been suspended by ITV after a guest died one week after filming an episode.

ITV said filming had been suspended and all episodes of the show, which began in 2005, have been taken off the broadcaster’s on-demand service, the ITV Hub.

‘The Jeremy Kyle Show has been broadcast since 2005 and includes guests who clash over personal issues, such as extramarital affairs, addiction and family conflicts, in front of a studio audience.’
