It has vibes of Noel Edmonds’s Late Late Breakfast Show and look how that ended.


It puts me in mind of The Jenny Jones Show when a guest found out he had a secret admirer in the shape of his gay neighbour. The next day he went next door and shot his neighbour dead. There was a huge debate (and legal action) over the role of the show, and whether their mental health checks were good enough prior to selecting guests.

As far as the news goes, I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner. The show made its name by exploiting vulnerable people for ratings, and it amazes me that ITV allowed it to run for so long, considering the increased concern over mental health, male suicide etc.

The Jeremy Kyle show has itself received plenty of criticism over the years, including from a judge (if I recall correctly).


"human form of bear baiting" according to a judge who presided over a case about an assault on stage in 2007 where a 'guest' headbutted another.

JK's official YouTube channel is still up.

Up to now the problem was that it rates well, and if they’d taken the moral high ground and axed it, it’d turn up on Channel 5 within weeks.

You could have imagined the twitter and tabloid fuelled outrage if ITV had axed it considering the fuss they make when just one episode is displaced.

If this incident proves to be the end of the series as a whole (I can’t see it going back on air from what has been reported), then certainly it’s the end of a long run of shows to be produced by Anglia under Vanessa then Trisha, then Granada and Jeremy Kyle.

Whilst no deaths happened it’s very similar to when the BBC drllled Kilroy, which didn’t come back in its original format only to be binned outright properly thereafter.

It’ll be interesting to see how ITV deals with the matter in the next few weeks.

22% audience share and 1m viewers a day are difficult to replace, particularly for a show that has run as long as it has so far.

Bit odd reading this as the last thing I watched last night was Charlie Brooker talking about the show back when it was still relatively new: https://youtu.be/3whHmKPfkFQ?t=357

LBC or Talk Radio I imagine will be the next place we see Kyle if this is the end of him on TV.


Kyle recently left Talk Radio after doing Saturday afternoons.

As for LBC, Leading Bland Conversation, I doubt it.

Oops, forgotten he'd already been on Talk!
