What did Twitter users say?

One said: “I wanna see him [Jeremy Kyle] back on screen, but not The Jeremy Kyle Show format, something else, something new.”

Meanwhile, it comes after a TV executive ruled out the show returning.

Speaking to BBC journalist Amol Rajan on his podcast, chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall revealed why the show was scrapped.

She said: “We cancelled it because actually, we felt that… we did our own look at it.

“It was probably something we were looking at any way to be absolutely honest with you and we made that decision because, in that moment, it was the right thing to do.

“That doesn’t mean to say they did anything wrong on the show, it just felt that given what had happened, the severity of that situation, we just thought that was the right decision to take.”
