Jeremy Kyle called tragic guest ‘a serial liar’ in front of jeering TV audience a week before his suicide

The Sun

JEREMY Kyle branded a contestant a “serial liar” a week before the guest was suspected of killing himself.

The guest was told to take to a lie detector test to prove he did not cheat on his girlfriend.

When he failed, Kyle told the dad, 63, he “would not trust him with a chocolate button”.

Kyle then asked the jeering audience: “Has anyone got a shovel?’’

Mr Dymond’s body was found a week later in Portsmouth, Hants, after he died from a morphine overdose.

The episode never aired on television, but coroner Jason Pegg has seen it.

He has since said the firebrand host’s actions “may have caused or contributed” to Mr Dymond’s death.

Mr Pegg, who has seen the episode, said: “Jeremy Kyle adopted an approach where he called the deceased a ‘serial liar’, that he ‘would not trust him with a chocolate button’ and made a comment, ‘has anyone got a shovel?’.”

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society - from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others... You're Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:

He said that Mr Dymond’s son Carl Woolley said his dad told him “he had been humiliated, taken for a mug and pounced on by the presenter”.

Mr Pegg said it was also “apparent” Kyle knew Steve had “previously been diagnosed with depression” and had been taking medication.”

He added: “Accordingly, I deem Jeremy Kyle to be an interested person in this case.’’

Kyle has been named as an Interested Person in a preliminary hearing for Mr Dyond’s inquest.

The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed by ITV after 14 years following the death last year.

Dwayne Davison, who was dubbed the ITV show's most hated guest, said his life was ruined after appearing on the show.

Last year, MPs published damning evidence about Kyle.

Unedited clips released by ITV to a Commons committee that was investigating into the programme, showed the presenter calling one guest a “gob-sh***”, and “slouching little idiot”.

Kyle was contacted for comment.
