An MP who has spoken openly about his own mental health issues has urged ITV to axe The Jeremy Kyle show for good. Charles Walker MP said, it would be "extremely sensible" if ITV said "this has gone far enough", adding that it was "a watershed moment". Mr Walker after the ITV show was suspended following the death of a guest shortly after filming.
Hampshire police confirmed Steven Dymond was found dead on 9 May following a recording of the show. The death is not being treated as suspicious.
A spokeswoman for Portsmouth coroner's office said: "HM Coroner has ordered a post-mortem to be carried out and is awaiting the result. An inquest is likely to be opened into the death within the next few days." Downing Street has also commented on the case. A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said: "This is a deeply concerning case.
"Broadcasters and production companies have a responsibility for the mental health and wellbeing of participants and viewers of their programmes. "We are clear they must have appropriate levels of support in place."
