"The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.

"Everyone at ITV's thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steven Dymond."

"ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects."
