To exclude, to expel:

A pilot for a Jeremy Kyle evening show has been disqualified after guests said it was “very uncomfortable” to share a platform with him.
The broadcaster shot the show for TalkTV, the new station Piers Morgan was on.
The program analyzed the news of the day with guests including celebrities.
But it was reported that some guests who had booked to appear were unhappy sharing the stage with Kyle, 56, following the controversy over the demise of The Jeremy Kyle Show.
TalkTV has since announced Sharon Osbourne, 69, as host of new primetime news panel The Talk.
A source said of Kyle’s pilot: “Feedback has been sent back to those who booked tickets to the stars and guests, as well as the producers. Some are very uncomfortable sharing a background with him and articulating their feelings. That’s not a pretty look for them. “
An insider said a Channel 4 documentary, which is showing this week, “hangs over the set like an ominous cloud”.
The source said: “Everybody knew it was coming and to be honest, there was a real sense of dread in the air.”
It is believed that the pilot was expelled before the C4 program aired.
TalkTV sources say Kyle is still part of their schedule when the show premieres in the spring and point out that his show is popular on talkRADIO.
The source said, “We try different things with a lot of different people,” and the guests didn’t have “any role in the production decisions.”
A second source close to Kyle said he’s shot a number of pilot shows “as is typical of a start-up broadcaster to see what works and what doesn’t.”
“It’s not a case of Jeremy losing the show, this is what happens when a station is in its infancy, you try so many different things,” the source added.
They say that Sharon’s show has always been different from Kyle’s, and that new shows featuring Kyle will be announced soon.
The Jeremy Kyle Show was throttled by ITV in 2019 following the death of Steve Dymond, who took a polygraph test that ended his marriage.
The show features explosive final pieces of text from Dymond to his fiancé.
They read: “I hope Jeremy Kyle’s performance is now happy. They are responsible for what happens now. I hope this generates good ratings for them. I bet they kept it quiet.
“You never lied to me. Never, never. My last word. ”
Documentary C4 reveals how deeply guilty the staff felt about his death.
“I feel like I have blood on my hands. We felt as if we had killed someone,” said one worker.
Kyle insists this week there are “two sides to every story” after he and his former show came under heavy criticism. The TV presenter, 56, said: “I will not comment on Steve Dymond’s tragic death until the legal process is over.”
Speaking about her new programme, Sharon said: “I am delighted to be working with News UK, the executive team and my good friend Piers. Check out this space for some interesting and heated debates from all of us. ”
Piers Morgan Uncensored will air in the UK on TalkTV, stream on FOX Nation in the US and air in Australia on Sky News Australia.
