Television talk show host Jeremy Kyle during a portrait session at the Hoxton Hotel in east London, ahead of the launch of his new book "I'm only being honest".

The Jeremy Kyle show is facing further scandal after being linked to other suicides of people who had appeared on it.

Two other guests took their own lives after appearing on the under-fire show, according to reports.

Erica Pawson, 33, took an overdose after her husband Paul dumped her on Kyle's advice after appearing on the programme while former boxer Paul McCarthy, 31, reportedly also took his own life just three months after appearing on the show in 2014.

The long-running talk show was axed on Wednesday over the suspected suicide of Stephen Dymondfollowing his appearance on the show.

Paul Lawson, 54, of Louth, Lincolnshire, told The Sun that he walked out on his wife Erica and their teenage daughter because of advice Kyle repeatedly gave him during a show segment called Britain's Worst Husband.

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?'"

He claimed when he and Erica went on the show there were no checks on their mental health beforehand, despite the fact she suffered from depression and had previously taken overdoses.

He said the pair were separated for hours during filming and producers "slagged him off" to provoke his fragile wife, while Kyle repeatedly urged him to leave her.

After filming, Paul moved out and Erica was found dead after overdosing in October 2005.

At an inquest, the coroner said the show had affected their marriage, The Sun reported.

Paul said appearing on the show had destroyed the lives of him, his wife and his daughter and Mr Dymond's death could have been avoided if producers had learned lessons from his wife's death.

He said: "Why didn't they suspend the programme when my wife died? We never got counselling, we didn't get anything.

"My daughter has had to see a specialist counsellor because of what happened."

The Daily Mirror also reported that boxer Paul McCarthy was found dead on July 3, 2014, after appearing on the show in March 2014.

His dad Kevin said: "The Jeremy Kyle Show is a disgrace.

"The coroner at Paul's inquest used the words bear-baiting in connection with the experience."
