ITV have unveiled plans to extend Good Morning Britain and This Morning to fill the slot left empty by the axing of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Kyle's long-running talk show was axed in May over the suspected suicide of guest Stephen Dymond and the 9.30am to 10.30am has currently been filled by repeats of Judge Rinder.

ITV has now announced that from January 6th 2020 breakfast news show GMB, currently hosted by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, will be extended by half an hour to run from 6am until 9am.

Lorraine Kelly'sLorraine will then move to 9am, followed at 10am by This Morning - presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby - which will also be extended by 30 minutes, and run until 12.30pm when Loose Women will air live until 1.30pm.

Kevin Lygo, ITV Director of Television, said: "Live television is at the core of what ITV does and what we bring to viewers. Our new schedule presents the opportunity to engage with our audience throughout the first part of each day, with some of the most well-known shows on television, in a way that no other channel does."

Emma Gormley, Managing Director ITV Daytime, which produces all of the live morning shows, said: "The ITV daytime teams consists of the very best on screen and off screen talent in the business, enabling us to set the agenda from early morning until the afternoon, as we pass the baton from show to show. We can't wait to bring our audiences an even greater abundance of personalities, surprises, warmth and humour and a bigger and better schedule for 2020."

Earlier this year Julian Bellamy, Managing Director of ITV appeared before the goverment Committee for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) inquiry into the treatment reality TV participants launched following Dymond's death.

Bellamy told MPs that ITV hoped to continue to work with Kyle in the future.

But he added: "We will not be bringing back a show that looks or feels like The Jeremy Kyle Show in the future."

ITV have confirmed that The Jeremy Kyle Show has been temporarily cancelled after a guest passed away after filming, with the show instead being replaced by Dickinson's Real Deal. ITV issued a statement about the sad news, writing: "Everyone at ITV and The Jeremy Kyle Show is shocked and saddened at the news of the death of a participant in the show a week after the recording of the episode they featured in and our thoughts are with their family and friends."The show has been cancelled indefinitelyThey continued: "ITV will not screen the episode in which they featured. Given the seriousness of this event, ITV has also decided to suspend both filming and broadcasting of The Jeremy Kyle Show with immediate effect in order to give it time to conduct a review of this episode of the show." The Jeremy Kyle Show has been on the air since 2005, and has aired over 3000 episodes. However, the show has not been without its controversies.A former guest on the show, Chris Lyons, previously opened up to The Guardian about his experiences, explaining: "It ruined my life. All of a sudden, I wasn't Chris Lyons any more. I was just that guy off the Jeremy Kyle show." Terry Carvell was another contestant on the show, and told the newspaper: "To tell you how bad it was: I haven't spoken to anybody in my family for about the last 15 years, but even my family members who saw the programme wrote letters complaining about how badly he'd treated me, and that half of what he said was untrue. We'd been recording for about 20 minutes or so and he said, 'Stand up, big man.' Well, I don't take crap from anybody. So I just looked at him. He got his microphone and he rammed it up under my chin. He was trying to provoke a reaction, and I just stood there. And he said, 'Just for one moment, you wanted to hit me, didn't you?'"

Dymond, 63, was believed to have taken his own life a week after failing a lie detector test filmed for the reality show.

An inquest into his death is due to take place on April 27th 2020 and is scheduled to last four days.
