Channel 4 viewers have shared heartache for the deceased guest on the Jeremy Kyle Show who took his life after appearing on the popular ITV show, which was taken off the air after 13 years.
On Sunday (March 13), viewers tuned in to the explosive documentary Jeremy Kyle Show: Death on Daytime which lifted the lid on alleged tactics used by the programme to heighten guests' distress for entertainment.
This included telling addicts that they were in competition with other participants for a single place in a rehabilitation centre despite having room for all guests on the show.
The show was axed back in May 2019 after Steve Dymond, 63, took his own life less than a week after he failed a lie detector test while filming an episode.
This led to an inquest into his death which is set to take place later this month.
Now, some viewers have taken to Twitter to share their heartbreak for the deceased participant after the first instalment of the two-part bombshell documentary.
One user wrote: “I hope the producers who put Steve Dymond on the show at least have the human decency to understand they shouldn’t have put him on.
“It’s no consolation to anyone but they need to understand what they did was wrong.”
Another added: “RIP to Steve Dymond he didn’t deserve to die like he did [three crying emojis] #deathondaytime.”
A third agreed: “Heartbreaking to see these Steve Dymond home videos. That man deserved better #DeathOnDaytime,” as one user added: “These voice messages from Steve are heartbreaking #deathondaytime.”
Elsewhere, another viewer chimed in with: “How can we get the money for a stone for the grave for Steve who so tragically took his own life. The poor guy without one doesn’t seem right. May heRIP [prayer emoji] @Channel4.”
Meanwhile, one user pointed out how they felt sorry for Steve’s family as they relived his appearance on the show.
They wrote: “Awful seeing Steve’s family having to relive the nightmare of his suicide. Truly terrible and shame on ITV for allowing it to happen #DeathOnDaytime.”
Another agreed: “Those last messages from Steve are just too heartbreaking … ITV should be fully ashamed #deathondaytime.”
It comes after Jeremy Kyle revealed he is taking legal action against the creators of the Channel 4 documentary that claimed his axed daytime show “exploited” and “duped” guests.
