The Jeremy Kyle Show permanently axed
ITV has permanently cancelled 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.
Bosses pulled the show on Monday, following the death of one of its guests - who was due to appear on that episode - a week after filming.
It led to ITV suspending production of the show and opening up a review on the situation.
However in a statement this morning, it was revealed the show won't be coming back.
It was on TV screens for 14 years, and had been accused in the past of exploiting vulnerable guests.

In a statement, ITV CEO Carolyn McCall said:
"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."
In addition, the previously announced review into the episode of the show in question is underway and will continue.
ITV says it will continue to work with the presenter on other projects.
