Jeremy Kyle opens up about his mental health following show’s cancellation

Show host Jeremy Kyle has opened up about his mental health state following the cancellation of his ITV show in 2019.

The Jeremy Kyle Show was cancelled after Steve Dymond (63) was found dead as a result of a morphine overdose at a flat in Portsmouth, ten days after failing a lie detector test on the show.

His death, which is still being investigated, was believed to be a suspected suicide.

Kyle (56) stated that he spiralled into a depression following the show’s cancellation.

He told The Sun, “I used to think ‘get a grip’ when some celebrities talked about those sort of problems.”

“But suddenly I realised first-hand you can’t always do that. I never thought they would affect me like they did.”

Admitting that he was struggling with his mental health, Kyle sought help from a doctor following advice from his partner Vicky Burton.

“I was completely devastated at first and then I became completely demotivated. Every ounce of energy seemed to have gone and I just couldn’t bring myself to leave the house or even open the curtains.”

He said that many friends disappeared and never got in touch with him again but added that many other friends such as Piers Morgan and Kate Garraway remained in touch and were “brilliant”.

He stated that he was “hunted and scapegoated” but hopes that people will accept him for who he is with his new endeavours while stating that the biggest thing he’s learnt is “to have great belief in the British people”.

Kyle will also be launching a new show on talkRADIO.
