These Two Callers In A Blazing Row Over Jeremy Kyle

Let's take a closer look at how this unfortunate situation went down. Those efforts only worked against him in the end.

According to an audience member who saw Dymond's episode, the man collapsed to the ground after hearing the result of his lie detector test - which was to do with his relationship.

The Daily Star carries comments from Mr Dymond's former partner's daughter in defence of the programme.

The validity of lie detector tests has been up for question for a long time.

Following Thalassitis' death, ITV said that its "duty of care is a continuous and ongoing process for each (Love) Islander".

"Four days later he was dead".

Mr Dymond's body was found at an address in Grafton St, Portsmouth, on May 9. It's reported that he appeared to have died from an overdose of prescription medication, which he was taking for arthritis.


She added: "But I wanted to go on, I just wasn't in the right frame of mind". Some of his posts also spoke to symptoms of emotional distress, as did his final texts to Callaghan.

The Jeremy Kyle Show would dress guests in tracksuits, a purported programme insider has claimed.

"Everyone at ITV's thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steve Dymond", she said.

Broadcaster ITV pulled its most popular daytime show 'The Jeremy Kyle Show' off air indefinitely following the death of 63-year-old Steve Dymond, a week after he appeared on an episode.

"ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured".

A statement from ITV says: "Given the gravity of recent events we have chose to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show".

The next series of Love Island will return to air in the next couple of weeks.


Jeremy Kyle started his broadcasting career in radio, and is well remembered in the industry for his late-night phone-in shows, Late n Live and Jezza's Confessions, both networked across a number of commercial radio stations including BRMB and Century FM.

For their experience, Jane Callaghan said that the Jeremy Kyle producers were "brilliant" and that for Dymond in particular, they were "really persistent in offering him help".

ITV's support for its reality show talent has also come under scrutiny following the deaths of two former Love Island contestants.

"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". It's clear that this story isn't finished yet.

Ther pro-Kyle caller is realistic though, pointing out: "Of course" the show uses people like that for ratings, but that they are still helping people.

Off the air: Jeremy Kyle.
