THERE are growing calls for the ITV show to be axed for good following the death of one of the guests.

Steve Dymond died from an overdose having taken part in a recording for The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Charles Walker MP appeared on the BBC to say it would be "extremely sensible" if ITV said "this has gone far enough", saying it was "a watershed moment".

Hampshire police said Steven Dymond was found dead on May 9, following a recording of the show and his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Portsmouth coroner's office issued this statement: "HM Coroner has ordered a post-mortem to be carried out and is awaiting the result. An inquest is likely to be opened into the death within the next few days."

Prime Minister Theresa May said it was a deeply concerning case.

She said: "Broadcasters and production companies have a responsibility for the mental health and wellbeing of participants and viewers of their programmes.

"We are clear they must have appropriate levels of support in place."

The pre-recorded episode featured Mr Dymond taking a lie detector test over his alleged infidelity.

ITV said everyone at the show were shocked and saddened by his death and all episodes have been pulled including the back catalogue.
