ITV’s The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed last month after it emerged that former guest, Steve Dymond, had taken his own life days after appearing on the show.
Now it has been reported that tragic Steve, 63, will be buried next week in a pauper’s funeral.
His ex-fiance has revealed that no one had come forward to claim his body.
Speaking to The Mirror, Jane Callaghan said: “I just got a phone call from the council to say they had arranged the funeral themselves because no one else had come forward.”
She explained that she had received a call from an environmental health officer who was arranging the burial.
“I will go with my daughter because I don’t want to regret it later but I still have very mixed feelings about it.”
“I’m still all over the place. I was told there’s only a couple of people who asked to be kept informed of the funeral. It’s sad it has ended like this,” she added.
It’s understood that Steve had approached the show in an attempt to prove he hadn’t been unfaithful to Jane.
But, filming the show on May 2, he failed the lie detector test, which prompted the end of his relationship.
Reportedly ‘humiliated and traumatised’, Steve took his own life, revealing in his final texts that he “couldn’t live without her”.
It was also revealed that Steve had suffered from depression.
In the following days and weeks, Steve’s estranged wife, Dianne Healing, accused him of being a paedophile who was terrified of being exposed.
Dianne told The Sun that he was a “prolific liar”.
