Trivia / The Jeremy Kyle Show

  • Banned Episode: Turned Up to Eleven; following the show's cancellation in 2019, ITV pulled all new episodes and reruns from their schedule, the show's YouTube channel, and all social media pages related to it. ITV subsequently made it clear that unless the inquiries resulting from the suicide of a guest completely exonerate the show of any culpability whatsoever in his death, the show and any footage from it will never see the light of day in any way, shape or form again.

  • Genre-Killer: The backlash could turn the show into this. Other shows like Love Island will be under scrutiny, and a Judge Rinder episode got pulled at the last minute because a participant had been pressured to take part — no doubt they feared the headlines.
  • Old Shame: As stated above, ITV promptly took down every online account related to the show including its website, as they perhaps wanted nothing to do with the show that was said to have driven one guest to taking his own life.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Given that the show came to popularity in the mid-late 2000s, just as streaming video was really taking off, it's probably safe to say that ITV aren't going to be able to expunge every trace of its existence.
