Jeremy Kyle has paid tribute to his former talk show producer Natasha Reddican, who tragically died last week aged just 31.
The former Jeremy Kyle Show producer was found dead at her boyfriend’s Manchester home on Friday.
The police were reportedly called to the scene but as yet, the cause of death is unknown.
I can scarcely believe this tragic news.
Jeremy said in a statement: “I can scarcely believe this tragic news, Tash was such a talented producer and an extremely popular part of our team.
“Of course, my first thoughts are for her family and friends – my heart goes out to them at this impossibly sad and difficult time.”
The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed last May when guest Steve Dymond, 63, died 10 days after allegedly failing a lie detector test on the daytime show.
It’s believed Natasha wasn’t involved in signing Mr Dymond as a guest.
In a statement about Natasha’s death, ITV said: “Our thoughts are with her family and all those who knew her. She was a producer on The Jeremy Kyle Show and left ITV eight months ago, in June 2019.
“As with all other former employees on the show she was offered support and counselling by ITV during the redundancy process and help in securing new employment.”
