This seems unreasonable. If the guy hadn't cheated on his wife, this would have never happened. If he had been found out chances are he would have done it anyway. You choose to go on the program, its not forced.

i've not heard everything and i may be wrong but i don't think he did cheat on his fiancee, lie detectors are by no means the bearers of absolute truth

and in any case, there's a big difference between saying "it would've happened anyway" and a person taking their life as a direct or even indirect result of the show itself and that's not something to be overlooked in terms of bad publicity for ITV

Yeah but they don’t want anybody else to kill themselves so it’s a safety measure. Also the lie detector tests are never 100% accurate so he may have been telling the truth (I didn’t watch the episode so I’m basing this on the assumption that he said nothing else ‘incriminating’)

The show is trash anyway so I say good riddance!

'Banned'? No. Just cancelled by one private company. C5 will have it by October.

That show was absolutely terrible, I can't believe it went on for so long. Though haven't 2 people already taken their life since appearing on Love Island? Another garbage show but that has no signs of stopping. Why the double standards? Id say Love Island is a lot worse for mental health - not just for the contestants but for loads of impressionable young viewers at home.

On one hand this is a bit off. On the other, Jeremy Kyle’s show does seem to take advantage of vulnerable people.

*shrug* it was well known poverty porn and was always rigged against those who are goddamn stupid enough to appear.

Mildly baffled everyone suddenly cares now though, as if this was an isolated incident.

This is stupid, Love Island has been running for less time than Kyle's show and resulted in 2 suicides but it is still up and running while Jeremy Kyle had many guests for more than a decade and because one of them committed suicide the show is then thrown out permanently? I sympathise with the guy honestly for the suicide, and lie detectors are not at all reliable but I imagine the guy did agree to some contract that by going on the show he is doing it at his own risk.
I am not a fan of the show by any means, I find it really annoying personally but it just feels really unfair on Kyle, whilst there are many other TV shows out there that make fun out of other people's vulnerabilities.

Lie detectors are stupid tbh, it should only be a last resort. That is the reason police aren't fully convinced on lie detectors.

I really don't think the show should have been axed. The axing seems to be predicated on the fact that the guy took his own life after being on the Jeremy Kyle show, therefore he took his own life because he was on the Jeremy Kyle show and subject to a lie detector (that i'm assuming didn't go his way). Well, who is to say that he wouldn't have committed suicide anyway - i'm reasonably sure there thoughts were there before he went on the show, there may be been another possible trigger (that we don't have the full story of) that may have led to the unfortunate event anyway. The show is trash, in my opinion, but I do think the axing was done based on shaky grounds to get rid of the entire show.

I am always intrigued why people put themselves on such shows? Are they paid mega bucks ?

Literally every piece of research indicates that polygraphs (lie detectors) tell the interviewer (or interrogator, depending on your perspective) nothing about whether the subject is lying or not. Time and again it has been proven there is no correlation between the results of a "lie detector", to the point where the US Supreme Court even ruled they were not accurate and did not provide useful information and hence were inadmissible in courts in the US.

Yet this show (with so much other popular media) perpetuated the myth that they can in fact detect the truth. Polygraphs measure arousal, which tells you nothing about whether the person is lying or not - someone can be nervous while telling the truth about something, for entirely unrelated reasons. Like knowing the outcome might affect your relationship, and lead to tried in the court of public opinion to boot....

Good riddance to this show, and the predatory showrunners. Hopefully this will lead to legislation on so-called "reality" TV requiring it to make clear to the audience (in person and at home) exactly what is or isn't meaningful and what is being manipulated by the producers to make a "better show", and to require they provide extensive follow up support to people who appear on their shows. Alas, I fear it is unlikely....and no doubt the exact same people who made this show and are responsible will be back in business with some other inane "reality" TV show soon enough.

I look forward to all the other reality shows being reviewed and removed but of course this will never happen and I also believe Jeremy Kyle will be back on Channel 5.

I'm happy the show is gone of course, but I do find it interesting that it seems just assumed that the TV show has a duty of care for those who appear on it. If they were under 18 sure, but if you're a consenting adult... isn't it your choice to appear on the show? Aren't you absolutely aware that your most personal issues will be aired in front of millions (and somehow those were the viewing figures!)?

These kinds of shows do seem to push the idea that lie detectors work though - that is a lie that I can definitely get behind punishing. Perhaps that should be brought up as an advertising standards violation?
