Jeremy Kyle fans demand show should get picked up by another TV channel

Fans are angry

ITV's The Jeremy Kyle Show may have been axed for good, but fans are demanding its return.

The long-running show was canned after the death of guest Stephen Dymond, who is believed to have taken his own life after filming an episode.

Despite the outcry for the show to be axed, the show's remaining fans have started petitions to keep the show going.
