Danniella Westbrook Claims Loose Women Interview Has Been Pulled, Following Jeremy Kyle Show Suspension

The former EastEnders star had been due to appear in a celebrity special of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Danniella Westbrook has claimed that her scheduled appearance on Loose Women has been cancelled, as a result of Jeremy Kyle’s ITV talk show being suspended.

Writing on Twitter, the former EastEnders star claimed that she was supposed to have been interviewed on Tuesday’s Loose Women, after being sent to a rehab centre by Jeremy and his show’s resident psychotherapist, Graham Stanier, earlier this year.

Having now completed treatment, Danniella says plans for her to chat with the Loose Women panel have been shelved due to The Jeremy Kyle Show’s suspension, following the death of a recent guest.

According to The Mirror, she tweeted: “SO @loosewomen NOW CANCELED Me TOMORROW DUE TO @ITVJeremyKyle BEING TAKEN OFF AIR I DEFINITELY.. So will catch up with you all soon”

Her post appears to have since been removed from her account.

HuffPost UK has contacted Loose Women for further information.

Following her previous appearance earlier this year, Danniella was supposed to have featured in another celebrity special of The Jeremy Kyle Show later this week.

However, it is now not know if or when this episode will air, following the news that filming on the divisive daytime show has been suspended until further notice.

An ITV spokesperson said on Monday: “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.

“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.”

ITV has also since removed all previous episodes of The Jeremy Kyle Show from its on-demand service, ITV Hub.
