THE Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV has been taken off air following the death of a guest, it has been confirmed, but how much is Jeremy Kyle worth in 2019?
Jeremy Kyle has been a staple on daytime television since 2005 with The Jeremy Kyle Show – where guests confront and attempt to resolve their issues.
But now the ITV daytime show has been cancelled after 14 years of being on air.
The Jeremy Kyle Show has been subject to widespread criticism this week, with calls for the show to be cancelled permanently.
And now, on Wednesday May 15, 2019, ITV has decided to end production of the talkshow for good.
Carolyn McCall, ITV’s CEO, announced today: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.
“The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.”
This comes after a guest is believed to have taken his own life a week after failing the show’s lie detecter test.
Steve Dymond, 63, was hoping to prove to his fiancée he had not been unfaithful, but he failed the test.
Jeremy Kyle net worth:
Jeremy Kyle’s net worth is an estimated £3.78million ($5million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
His fortune has no doubt been helped along by The Jeremy Kyle Show, but ITV has said they will continue working with him.
The ITV statement explained: “ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.”
So although the show has been axed, his wealth will no doubt continue to rise as he takes on other ITV projects.
The 53-year-old has hosted the tabloid talk show The Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV since 2005.
Kyle has also hosted a US version of the show, which ran for two seasons from 2011.
The no-nonsense talk show host started out as a life insurance salesman and recruitment consultant.
He later embarked on a career as a radio presenter, starting out at Orchard FM in Tauton, Somerset.

Carolyn McCall – ITV CEO
In Birmingham he got a steady job on the BRMB station, hosting the Late & Live show, as well as Jezza’s Jukebox.
In 2000 he started hosting Jezza’s Confessions and received an award for his Late & Live Show in 2011 from Sony.
But his major breakthrough happened when he got his own TV show – The Jeremy Kyle Show.
In 2009 he published his first book called I’m Only Being Honest, which was followed by others such as You Couldn’t Make It Up.
Earlier this week The Jeremy Kyle Show was pulled off air while an investigation into the episode was conducted.
A spokeswoman from ITV 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.
“Given the seriousness of this event, ITV also decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect in order to give it time to conduct a review pf this episode of the show.”
As well as suspending the show, all previous episodes have been removed from the ITV Hub.
Kyle has a fiancée, Vicky Burton, and three children – Alice, 15, Ava 13 and Henry, 10.
