Every episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show has been pulled from the ITV Hub – hours after the show was suspended “indefinitely” following the shock death of one of its guests .
The popular daytime show is no longer available to watch on ITV’s catch-up service after news of the unidentified guest’s death broke this morning, with viewers being left confused as to why an old episode of Dickinson’s Real Deal was airing in the usual Jeremy Kyle spot.
Now fans searching for old Jeremy Kyle episodes are greeted with an error message when they search for the programme within ITV’s Hub website.
The message reads: “The page you’re looking for can’t be found. We hope you’ll enjoy catching up on one of your other favourite shows.”
ITV is yet to respond to Mirror Online’s repeated requests for comment.
In a statement released this morning, the broadcaster confirmed it was launching a probe into today’s scheduled episode, which is believed to have been filmed a week ago.
An ITV spokeswoman said: “Everyone at ITV and The Jeremy Kyle Show is shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant in the show a week after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their family and friends.
“ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured.
“Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect in order to give it time to conduct a review of this episode of the show.”
However, both Christopher Maloney and Danniella Westbrook have separately confirmed they have been told the show will return to ITV again, as both of them were due to feature on a celebrity special tomorrow morning.
Former X Factor star Chris told Mirror Online: “It’s [a] temporary [suspension]. It will be aired at a later date. I haven’t been told the new TX date.
“It’s really sad news. I’m not sure of the actual details surrounding it, but my thoughts are with the family at this time.”
Giving a further update on Twitter , he said: “Hi guys, just spoken to the producers # ITVJeremyKyle and our celebrity special will be aired at a later date @ westbrookdanni will keep you updated. In the mean time my thoughts are with the family at this time.”
Former EastEnders actress Danniella also spoke about the cancellation.
But Danniella later revealed her Loose Women appearance had also been scrapped, adding: “SO @loosewomen NOW CANCELED Me TOMORROW DUE TO @ITVJeremyKyle BEING TAKEN OFF AIR I DEFINITELY.. So will catch up with you all soon.”
