“The Jeremy Kyle Show is dedicated to expanding and detailing the care processes for contributors built over 14 years. It has a dedicated guest mental health team with decades of experience in the NHS mental health sector, who are always focused on the well-being of guests throughout the production process. The guests were supported by the program and the welfare team before filming, during and after filming. If they require ongoing support then appropriate solutions will be found for them, which may include residential rehabilitation, counseling, anger management, family mediation, mediation child outreach or couples counseling.

“Due to the serious nature of the events in May 2019, namely the death of a guest a few days after joining the show, ITV has decided to discontinue production of the show. ITV will not comment further on that before the investigation will be held later this month.

“ITV does not accept the accusation that the center of this show is a ‘bad culture’ within the production team. We note that the show consists of former producers anonymously claiming they and others did wrong without substantiating evidence. ITV will never tolerate any of its production staff misleading or lying to guests. All guests on the Jeremy Kyle Show were aware of the nature of the show and the host’s style prior to taping. Most people who apply to appear see the show for themselves. All guests agreed to participate in writing.

“Since 2018, ITV has made significant strides in regards to its mission of caring for participants. ITV issued new detailed guidance to all of its manufacturers on participant protection in October 2019, which represents industry-leading best practice and now reflects changes for the Broadcasting Code implemented by industry regulator Ofcom in 2021. ITV also ensures better regulatory oversight of participants’ welfare through its Mission Care Board, and has established a The Mental Health Advisory group involves mental health charities to advise ITV on its policies towards program staff and guests.

Jeremy Kyle has been approached for a response about the series. He did not provide a statement for the broadcast.
