The Jeremy Kyle Show fans can rest easy as it’s been revealed that security guard Big Steve has another job at ITV following the show’s cancellation.
ITV announced last week that the daytime show has been axed following the suicide of guest Steve Dymond, who took his life 10 days after filming.
Viewers panicked about Steve’s fate following the news, with many demanding on Twitter to know what will become of the programme’s unsung hero.
But there’s no need to worry anymore because Entertainment Daily are reporting that he’s also a security guard on Judge Rinder, but is never actually seen on-screen.
The Jeremy Kyle Show is facing further scandal as a past guest has claimed his ex-wife died by suicide after advice from the TV presenter, on top of parents of a second guest alleging their son died three months after making an appearance in 2014.
In response to both claims, ITV provided Metro.co.uk with the same statement it offered after the death of Steven.
It read: ‘Prior to the show a comprehensive assessment is carried out by the guest welfare team on all potential contributors.
‘The guest welfare team consists of four members of staff; one consultant psychotherapist and three mental health nurses.
‘The guests are interviewed by guest welfare face to face at studios and prior to filming. Throughout filming the participants are supported by the guest welfare team in the studios during the recording phase of their show.
‘After filming has ended all guests are seen by a member of the guest welfare team to ensure they are feeling calm and emotionally settled before any participant leaves to travel home.
‘An evaluation of their needs is also carried out at this time and should they require any ongoing service regarding the problem they discussed on the show then appropriate solutions are found for them.
‘This could include residential rehabilitation, counselling, anger management, family mediation, child access mediation or couple counselling for example.’
