Jeremy Kyle is always the highest rated show for ITV each morning, so whilst it’s an appalling program ITV would never previously have axed it. When asked about the show at the TV festival last year, I seem to recall Kevin Lygo was quite embarrassed about the fact it’s their best performing show in the morning. Given what’s happened, I think this will (quite rightly) be the end of the show. ITV have been trying to move more upmarket recently, and dropping the show would certainly help.

With regards to what replaces it, would ITV be able to extend GMB and move Lorraine back an hour in the short term? An extra hour of GMB would be preferable to months of repeats, although it obviously depends on the availability of the crew and how it would affect This Morning.

I honestly doubt that this will be the end of the show. In addition to its own popularity, it must line up a lot of viewers for This Morning too.

Channel 5 would commission an axed Jeremy Kyle in a heartbeat. No matter what you think of the show (and I am not the biggest fan by any stretch), it is loved by millions and it can only be held accountable for the behaviour and actions of its participants away from the studio to a limited degree.

I'm not sure Channel 5 would be wanting to be seen as picking up a programme which (amongst other morally questionable things in its past) is a contributing factor in the death of a person (presuming it turns out that is what has happened).

Stopping production mid-series is a very grave signal indeed.
