CHANNEL 4 is set to lift the lid on former daytime hit The Jeremy Kyle Show, and will show the heartbreaking final messages from tragic guest Steve Dymond.
The texts were sent by Steve before he sadly took his life after failing a lie detector test on the show.
He appeared on the show, alongside his fiancée Jane Callaghan to try and prove that he hadn’t cheated on her back in 2019.
But the tests, which are not 100% accurate, said he was lying and their relationship ended.
Only 10 days later he took his own life which led to the ITV show being axed after 14 years.
Channel 4 launched an investigation into the show, which said Steve’s episode, which never aired, would have humiliated him.
The new film shows that Steve’s final texts read: “I hope the Jeremy Kyle show is so happy now.
“They are responsible for what happens now. I hope this makes good ratings for them. I bet they keep this quiet.”
“Never never never did I cheat on you. Never never. My final words.”
Steve’s landlady Shelley Thaxter, 58, who found his body, said: “Steve told me that when he was on this stage, Jeremy Kyle basically, laid into him, [saying] you’re a liar.
“He couldn’t get off the stage. It’s like a cat caught in the headlights.”
ITV defended themselves as after Steve’s death, they said: “The show had extensive, detailed duty of care processes in place for contributors built up over 14 years.
“Should they require ongoing help appropriate solutions were found. Due to the gravity of events in May 2019, ITV decided to end production of the show. It would not be appropriate to comment further on that in advance of the inquest this month.
“ITV does not accept the central allegation of this programme of a ‘bad culture’ within the production team. ITV would never condone any of its production staff misleading or lying to guests.”
“All guests were aware of the nature of the show and the presenter’s style before taking part. All guests gave their informed consent, in writing, to take part.”
The show will air Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4 and All 4 in the UK.
