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.
