Flack's death also comes after ITV axed The Jeremy Kyle Show last May, following the death of Steve Dymond who appeared on the programme.

Mr Dymond, 63, died around a week after reportedly failing a love-cheat lie detector test on Kyle's confrontational daytime show.

The construction worker was found in his room in Portsmouth on May 9 after splitting from on-off fiancee Jane Callaghan.

In October last year, MPs accused ITV Studios of "corporate failure of responsibility" towards Kyle's guests after viewing new, behind-the-scenes footage from a whistleblower.

The footage showed guests being filmed backstage and in dressing rooms.

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, which is investigating reality TV, said the footage "makes a mockery of the 'aftercare' it has claimed to provide".

The vulnerability of participants on The Jeremy Kyle Show was being "exploited" for the "purpose of entertainment", MPs said.
