The ITV broadcaster claimed to have ceased production of the 14-year Jeremy Kyle Show. Widely regarded as Britain's response to the Jerry Springer Show, the Jeremy Kyle show often featured betrayed couples or friends, where participants sometimes agreed to polygraph tests to settle disputes. The results would be announced to the audience of an attacking studio with occasional violent consequences.
The deceased participant, identified as Steve Dymond, died a week after his appearance on the program, ITV said, but no cause of death was confirmed.
Jenny Cummins, ITV press officer, told CNN Wednesday that the show would be canceled "forever", and ITV CEO Carolyn McCall issued a statement while continuing a review of the long-running program.
"Given the severity of recent events, we have decided to discontinue the production of The Jeremy Kyle Show," said McCall.
"The Jeremy Kyle show has a loyal audience and has been filmed for 14 years by a dedicated production team, and now is the time to end the show."

" Everyone who is interested in ITV's thoughts and sympathies with the family and friends of Steve Dymond, "continued the statement.
ITV previously announced that it had not screened the episode in which Dymond appeared.
The broadcaster said he would continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.
