The ITV daytime programme has been suspended from air after a contributor was found dead a week after taking one of its lie detector tests.

Viewers are calling for Love Island to be axed after the Jeremy Kyle Show was cancelled "indefinitely" following the death of a guest.

SENIOR politicians have called for ITV to end the Jeremy Kyle Show for good following the death of a guest who appeared on the show.

The Conservative MP Charles Walker, a vice-chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on suicide and self-harm prevention, called for the show to be pulled.

Dymond apparently took a lie-detector test for the episode, filmed on May 2, in order to prove to Callaghan that he had not cheated on her.

Claims made by the apparent former employee have been reported by BBC Newsbeat about the ITV programme, which has been taken off air indefinitely.

"It's a very, very unattractive TV show and I'm surprised it's gone on so long".

Prof Sir Simon Wessely, president of the RCP and vice dean of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London, said: "I think it should be dropped".

He added: "I do think the Jeremy Kyle show and those involved will feel a sense of responsibility and a sense of grief, clearly not on the same scale as this man's family. As human beings with their own family, perhaps now they will decide this too can't continue.".

Damian Collins, the chairman of the Commons digital, culture, media and sport committee, said TV companies "have a duty to care for the people who take part in their programmes", while the Conservative MP Simon Hart, who also sits on the committee, described the show as "car-crash TV which revels in people's awful misfortune and sometimes their vulnerabilities".

An email sent to staff by Dame Carolyn said that it "was a very hard decision to make" to halt filming and broadcasting of the programme, but that they felt it would be "inappropriate to continue to broadcast the show when a participant on it has so recently died".

Ms Callaghan said that just before they went on the show, Mr Dymond had convinced her he had not cheated.

Mr Collins said that the DCMS select committee will discuss "what should be done to review the duty of care support for people appearing in reality TV shows" in its private meeting on Wednesday.

She told The Sun: 'They were brilliant. They were there when he needed help.

"Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also made a decision 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".

The company-wide message also stated that ITV Studios' managing director Julian Bellamy would travel to Manchester, where the talk show is filmed, to meet with the production team.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Morgan said: "Ultimately the issue, it seems to me, seeing this with two Love Island contestants who took their lives and now this tragedy on The Jeremy Kyle Show, these people are going on one is forcing them to".

A celebrity edition of the show starring former X Factor contestant Christopher Maloney and ex-EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook was due to air on Tuesday, but will be rescheduled, according to both stars.
