Former The Jeremy Kyle Show producer found dead nine months after show is axed

A former producer of the The Jeremy Kyle Show has been found dead at her boyfriend’s home in Manchester, nine months after the ITV show was axed.

Natasha Reddican was discovered at her boyfriend's home in Greater Manchester on Thursday. The cause of her death is yet to be confirmed.

A statement from Greater Manchester Police said: “At around 3.35pm Thursday 27, February 2020, police were called to reports of concern for the welfare of a woman at a property on Maurice Street, Salford.

“Emergency services attended and, despite the best efforts of paramedics, a woman in her 30s was pronounced dead at the scene. There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. A file will be passed to the coroner.”

ITV confirmed the news in a statement and paid tribute to Natasha in a statement which read: “Our thoughts are with her family and all those who knew her.

“She was a producer on The Jeremy Kyle Show and left ITV eight months ago, in June 2019.

“As with all other former employees on the show she was offered support and counselling by ITV during the redundancy process and help in securing new employment.”

They continued: “TV arranged for a counsellor to be on-site throughout the process to offer emotional support.

“Everyone also had access to the Employee Assistance Programme, which offers 24/7 counselling and emotional support.

“ITV also put in place training sessions designed to support people in securing their next roles.

“ITV also supports The Film and TV Charity, which has been set up to support those working within the industry, particularly freelancers, and helps fund its free, 24/7 support line offering confidential advice.”

Natasha worked on the ITV show for eight years, her role included booking guests and helping with the running of the show.

She was made redundant along with a number of others who worked on the show after it was axed last year over the suicide of Steve Dymond, who took his own life a week after he appeared on the show.

But, TV sources are reported to have insisted to Mirror Online that she played no part in booking Steve on the show.

It comes as Jeremy Kyle confirmed his return to the spotlight after his show was axed.

The daytime show’s host’s comeback was announced by his manager Claire Powell as she shared a photo of him on Instagram and wrote in the caption: “So pleased to welcome the very talented and very real … Jeremy Kyle exclusively to @the_can_group For 14 years, Jeremy Kyle dominated Daytime TV with his hugely successful eponymous talk show.”

“He's also proved a hit in prime time, fronting five successful series of his investigative current affairs brand, The Kyle Files.. Jeremy’s runaway UK success was the catalyst for two syndicated US series as well as stints presenting two other ITV juggernauts This Morning and Good Morning Britain.
