What happened on The Jeremy Kyle Show?
The Jeremy Kyle Show has always been the subject of controversy.
But a tragic event in May 2019 finally took the show off air.
A guest, 63-year-old Steve Dymond, is suspected to have taken his own life after appearing on the show.
Portsmouth resident Steve went on the show to prove he hadn’t cheated on his fiancee, however, he failed a lie detector test on air and the couple subsequently separated.
Was The Jeremy Kyle show to blame for Steve Dymond’s death?
Steve Dymond’s death is said to be due to the results of the lie detector test taken on The Jeremy Kyle Show.
However, according to Sky News, his family say otherwise.
Steve was accused of being unfaithful to his fiancée, Jane Callaghan, on the show.
Now, Jane’s daughter, Amy Turner, has said that Jeremy Kyle and the producers should not be blamed for his death.
She said that the show’s producers “do not deserve this, it was not their fault”.
Amy said: “They were in constant contact with us all including Steve. He even told the team he was feeling very positive and that he really wanted the help.”
She continued that the team had gone above and beyond to help the whole family, however, it is said that ITV have had to take action following the suicides of Love Island contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
