Image caption Concerns about the Jeremy Kyle Show following the death of Steven Dymond, a guest on the programme, continue to dominate the front pages. “Kyle on trial,” says the Sun’s headline, as the paper reports the prime minister is “deeply concerned”.
Image caption The Daily Star takes a different tack: “Jeremy’s Kyle’s NOT to blame,” says its front page, reporting the comments of the dead man’s stepdaughter.
Image caption ITV bosses could cancel the show permanently, says the i, as mental health campaigners question whether it “can ever be safe”.
Image caption A photo of presenter Jeremy Kyle leaving his car near his home in Windsor fills the front page of Metro, with the headline: “TV Kyle breaks cover.”
Image caption “Theatre of cruelty” is the headline in the Daily Mirror, reporting the comments of a psychiatrist. The paper says some guests came close to killing themselves after appearing on the show.
Image caption Steven Dymond’s son has spoken to the Daily Mail for their front page story, telling the paper that his father felt Jeremy Kyle “ripped into him”.
Image caption The Guardian carries the story of a man who says he became “the most hated Jeremy Kyle guest ever”. The paper’s main story reports that new Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt plans to give military veterans an amnesty from prosecution for historical war crimes – except in Northern Ireland.
Image caption “New laws to halt hounding of war veterans” is the Daily Express’s take on the same story. The paper says it is a step forward for its campaign for better treatment of former servicemen and women.
Image caption The main story in the Daily Telegraph is the trial of a man accused of fabricating allegations about a VIP paedophile ring. The paper says it led to a £2m police investigation that caused “immeasurable distress” to those prosecutors say he falsely accused.
Image caption Police warn that new rules designed to identify Islamophobia could hinder investigations into terrorism, according to the lead story in the Times. The paper reports that a letter to the prime minister says the rules pose a threat to measures such as stop-and-search at ports and the outlawing of terror groups.
Image caption And an investigation in the Financial Times reveals that a security vulnerability in WhatsApp allowed spyware to be installed on phones. The paper says lawsuits claim that dissidents in several countries were targeted using the hack.
