Dymond's death is to be the subject of an inquest that will be opened within the next few days.

The Jeremy Kyle Show was yanked off air earlier this week after guest Steve Dymond was tragically found dead after appearing in a recent episode.

Though he died from a drug overdose, Dymond's loved ones believe his death was intentional, The Sun reported. He was still my fiancé. Watched by millions, the reality show sees young singles coupling up in a bid to find love and stay on the island of Majorca - as the public watches, tweets and debates their every move.

"Absolutely right that Jeremy Kyle has finally been axed but surely Love Island is every bit as toxic and irresponsible", one person tweeted.

"He was quietly struggling and we didn't know at the time. He was so upset that he wasn't making much sense, but he just kept repeating, "I haven't cheated, Carl, I swear I haven't cheated"." he said.

Referring to his father by his first name, Mr Woolley said: "Steve told me "Kyle really laid into me". My life is not worth living without you".

It has been reported that Steve "collapsed to the ground" during the show's recording after being given the lie detector results.

"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.

His son Carl Woolley, 39, said his father had been "distraught" over the breakdown of his relationship and hoped the show would help him "clear his name".

Shelley added, "He was just a mess and he was just humiliated".

The programme has yet to return to the air with all episodes suspended and all filming put on hold.

The statements, issued by ITV CEO Carolyn McCall, reads, 'Given the gravity of recent events we have made a decision to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Jeremy Kyle attends the TV Choice Awards 2015 at Hilton Park Lane in London on September 7, 2015.

Broadcaster ITV confirmed Monday's show would not air and it has now wiped all episodes of the programme from its on-demand service the ITV Hub.

Jeremy returned to radio previous year with a weekly show on talkRADIO, but he presented his last show on March 30th 2019.

A British TV company has canceled a daytime talk show known for its tabloid style and rowdy confrontations after a guest died shortly after taping an episode.

"I'm so angry", Ricky told LBC. Numerous people I meet face terror and tragedy in their lives-and they keep going. Because the critics aren't just anxious about participants, they think the entire enterprise is a social harm - throughout the commentary shines through a vicarious desire to save the poor even from watching something that sets its sights so low, and possibly even corrupts them (does real life corrupt?).

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.

Despite his show being cancelled, McCall said that ITV will "continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects".
