British broadcaster ITV has said it is permanently cancelling 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

It comes after the death of a guest who appeared on the show last week.

63-year-old Steve Dymond told friends about going on the show and how he hoped it would heal his relationship with his fiancé, Jane.

The episode of the confrontational talk show was pulled at short notice after news of the guest's death.

It was filmed a week ago and it is believed the guest died in the days since.

ITV had previously said the episode would be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event."

Filming and broadcasting of the show was suspended on Monday.

But ITV confirmed in a statement on Wednesday that the entire show was being cancelled.

Carolyn McCall, ITV's CEO, said: "Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show."

"The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.

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

ITV also confirmed the review of the episode of the show is underway, and it will continue to work with Kyle on other projects.

During the episode Mr Dymond he had taken a lie detector test to convince his fiancé he had not been unfaithful, but was told he had failed.

It emerged on Tuesday that Mr Dymond had been the subject of an arrest warrant after he failed to attend a court hearing for non-payment of a fine.

Police have said his death is not being treated as suspicious.
