Jeremy Kyle earned extra £182,694 this year despite his show being axed in 2018

Jeremy Kyle boosted his bank balance by an extra £182,694 this year despite his show being axed.

His controversial talk show was canned after 14 years following the death of a guest, suspected of taking his own life after failing a lie detector test.

Books from his firm Jezza Ltd – filed to Companies House this week – show that the firm took £249,497 for the 12 months to the end of July 2020.

Books for the previous year show that the firm garnered £66,803.

Kyle has not been on the box since the show was axed after tragedy stuck.

It is believed he is working on other projects.

Earlier this month it was revealed Kyle told tragic Steve Dymond that he “would not trust him with a chocolate button”.

The TV host branded Steve a “serial liar” after he went on the show to prove he did not cheat on his partner.

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

A week later Steve was found dead from a morphine overdose in Portsmouth, Hants.

A coroner ruled that Kyle’s actions “may have caused or contributed” to the death.

Coroner Jason Pegg, who watched the never aired 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?’.”

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

Mr Pegg said Steve phoned his brother, Leslie Dymond, after the show, saying he had “endured a terrible time and could not go on living”.

He added he was “satisfied that acts or omissions of Jeremy Kyle may have caused or contributed to the death of Stephen Dymond”.

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