Every single episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show has been removed from ITV Hub following the news a guest died a week after filming.
Fans of the talk show were confused this morning after the channel replaced The Jeremy Kyle Show with an episode of Dickinson’s Real Deal.
It was later revealed filming for the programme had been suspended ‘indefinitely’ and now even old episodes have been wiped from ITV’s streaming platform, with details revealing how to appear on the series popping up instead.
Earlier today, an ITV spokesperson addressed the sudden schedule change in a statement which read: ‘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 after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their family and friends.
‘ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured.
‘Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect in order to give it time to conduct a review of this episode of the show.’
Danniella Westbrook was expected to appear on a celebrity edition of The Jeremy Kyle Show, but the former EastEnders actress has since confirmed the episode has been postponed for a later date.
‘I’ve just been informed
@ITVJeremyKyle will now not be airing tomorrow .. Im hoping you guys get to see it at a later date but catch me on @loosewomen tomorrow,’ she told her followers.
The Jeremy Kyle has been a staple on the ITV daytime schedule since its launch in 2005.
ITV have assured Metro.co.uk: ‘The Jeremy Kyle Show has significant and detailed duty of care processes in place for contributors pre, during and post show which have been built up over 14 years.’
