On Monday, an ITV spokesperson told UK media: “Absolutely everyone at ITV and The Jeremy Kyle Show is shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant in the show a week just after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their household and pals.

“ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured. Provided the seriousness of this occasion, ITV has also decided to suspend each filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with quick impact in order to give it time to conduct a critique of this episode of the show.”

Fans noticed on Monday morning that the show did not air in the course of its common time slot and took to Twitter to uncover out why.

The Jeremy Kyle Show started in 2005 and was modelled just after the US system Jerry Springer. More than 3000 episodes have aired given that the show started.
