If you were wondering why The Jeremy Kyle Show wasn’t on TV this morning, it’s because the programme has been taken off air.
An ITV spokesperson confirmed that the show has been suspended indefinitely.
They said they’d decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting after a guest died shortly after recording for the show.
