The Jeremy Kyle Show has been pulled off air indefinitely by ITV following the death of a guest a week after they recorded an episode of the series.

This morning's episode of the confrontational talk show did not air, and was replaced with Dickinson's Real Deal, as the episode was due to feature a guest who passed away since it was filmed.

The episode featuring the participant who died will be submitted for a review due to the "seriousness of this event", ITV 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.
