Jeremy Kyle?has been pictured for the first time after his show, The Jeremy Kyle Show,?was pulled off the air indefinitely on Monday; following the devastating news a contestant had died after filming.
Steve Dymond, 62,?tragically died a week after the show was filmed – and pals fear he took his own life after failing a lie detector test on the programme,?The Sun reports.
Keeping his head down, the 53 year old looked downcast as he arrived back at his home today; after remaining silent following the tragic news.?
Dressing down in denim shorts and a navy blue zip-up hoodie, the ITV host kept his face hidden under a cap.
Hurring inside his home, he remained silent as he was protected?from the media by his security guards.?
Earlier, Jeremey was pictured sitting in the back of an Audi as he was chauffeured home.
Dymond had participated in the test to prove his innocence over allegations he had cheated on his fianceé?Jane Callaghan.
Callaghan, who said that she and Mr Dymond got engaged on Christmas Day in 2017, told The Sun about her other half before his tragic passing.?
Discussing their engagement, she said: “He was crying, the love was real. He was the most generous and loving person.?He was quietly struggling and we didn't know at the time. He cheated on me, I know he did.?I can't forgive but I just want him to be alive."
She claims her final messages from him read: "I can’t live without you. I just wanted to come and see you. I just wanted to say sorry before I go. My life is not worth living without you."
She insisted the aftercare team were "brilliant" and made repeated attempts to contact Mr Dymond.?
Speaking out on their aftercare routine for guests participating in the programme, ITV told Metro: “The Jeremy Kyle Show has a significant and detailed duty of care processes in place for contributors pre, during and post show which have been built up over 14 years.”
