ITV confirmed in a statement this morning they have axed The Jeremy Kyle Show following a guest’s death.

Steve Dymond appeared on the show to take part in a lie detector test to prove to his fiancé he hadn’t cheated.

However, friends and family feared he had killed himself after the results indicated he had strayed from his relationship – an allegation he denied.

While the axing has warranted a positive response online, many fans have taken to social media to voice their concerns over Big Steve’s future career – the bodyguard who worked on the show.

Big Steve is Jeremy’s right hand guy, helping to break up any fights and protect the TV host from angry guests.

During the show’s career, the burly bouncer has had to wrestle participants to the floor after a series of heated rows.

Social media users took to Twitter in a bid to help Big Steve find an alternative job.

ITV’s CEO Carolyn McCall announced earlier today that Jeremy Kyle had been axed.

She wrote: “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 will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.”
