The Jeremy Kyle Show is a British tabloid talk show presented by Jeremy Kyle and was produced by ITV Studios. It was broadcast on the ITV network between 4 July 2005 and 10 May 2019.

The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, added that she "can't stomach to watch it" now.

She added: "For people who've worked on there for a while, I think you become immune to it. You desensitise yourself."

She was speaking on the day that ITV decided to axe The Jeremy Kyle Show for good.

Guest Steve Dymond reportedly took his own life after appearing on the programme.

The 63-year-old's body was found at an address in Portsmouth on 9 May, a week after the recording.

Student Babette Lucas-Marriott was in the audience when Mr Dymond appeared on the programme.

She told Sky News that Mr Dymond's "whole life just got ripped from him in front of us".

She added: "He'd lost his family, as a result of this [lie detector] test, and we were expected to watch and find it entertaining.

"The audience were shocked. The first two stories had been a lot of laughter, a lot of participation, but it just completely changed.

"People gasped and then just went silent. No one knew how to react."

Even before she heard that Mr Dymond had died, Ms Lucas-Marriott said she felt "very shaken having seen that and just uncomfortable and upset about it".

She continued: "The staff were like this big pantomime, encouraging everyone, really like loads of fun - big experience.

"But that just wasn't the reality when the real people came on stage."

A former guest on the show, Dwayne Davison, told Sky News that appearing on the programme had ruined his life.

He said: "I've lost jobs because of this, I've lost friends because of this, I've been assaulted in the street because of this.
