The Jeremy Kyle show has been pulled from air indefinitely, after a guest died a week after recording the programme.

This morning's episode of the talk show, which was set to feature the participant who died, was replaced by Dickinson's Real Deal.

The pulled episode will be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event", ITV have said.

Filming and broadcasting of the programme will be suspended while the review is being conducted.

An ITV spokeswoman said: "Everyone at ITV and The Jeremy Kyle Show is shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant in the show a week after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their family and friends.

"ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured".

The identity of the person who appeared in the programme has not been revealed.

The tabloid talk show sees host Kyle and psychotherapist Graham Stanier help the guests talk through their personal issues in front of a studio audience.

The programme has had its regular daytime morning slot on ITV since 2005.
