ITV cancels The Jeremy Kyle Show

His son Carl Woolley, 39, said his father had been "distraught" over the breakdown of his relationship and hoped the show would help him "clear his name".

The case has renewed debate about the ethics of tabloid television, and sparked a parliamentary inquiry into the regulation of programs that put members of the public under intense scrutiny.

Kyle was pictured and filmed near his home in Windsor on Tuesday, but has yet to comment personally on the show's cancellation.

Although ITV confirmed that the episode featuring the deceased guest will not be aired, many fans have been calling for the show to be taken off air. According to reports, Dymond had failed a lie detector test over alleged infidelity.

"I really believe it was the show that tipped him over the edge", she told The Daily Mail.

Their effectiveness is still debated around the world with many claiming there is no proof they produce consistently accurate results and that they are easy "to beat".

The caller didn't think the other people on the show were the only problem, but that the host attacked people too.

Mr Dymond was found dead at his Portsmouth flat by his landlady, who criticised Kyle, saying: 'He has not even come forward and said he's sorry'. Police said the death was not suspicious, and a post-mortem will be held to determine the cause.

Shortly before his death, Dymond reportedly texted his ex-fiancée a series of desperate pleas.

After he failed to attend the hearing, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The House of Commons media select committee is to investigate whether TV companies give guests enough support.

The broadcaster said it would also no longer be "reliant on the islanders asking us for support but for us to proactively check in with them on a regular basis".

Damian Collins, chairman of the Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said TV companies "have a duty to care to the people who take part in their programmes", while Tory MP Simon Hart, who also sits on the committee, described the Jeremy Kyle Show as "car-crash TV which revels in people's bad misfortune and sometimes their vulnerabilities".

Another added: "Funny how Love Island can still be aired". All previous episodes of the show have been removed from ITV's online service, and future screenings have also been scrapped.

The show said it had a guest welfare team including a psychotherapist.

"The guests are interviewed by guest welfare face-to-face at studios and prior to filming".
