The Jeremy Kyle Show security guard Big Steve has been given another job on ITV after the show was axed.
The much-loved security guard has been given a new role after The Jeremy Kyle Show was taken off air following the tragic death of guest Steve Dymond, who took his own life 10 days after filming.
According to Entertainment Daily, Big Steve is now a security guard on Judge Rinder, but won’t appear on screen on the show.
Fans feared Steve, who is often hailed as the “unsung hero” of the show, would lose his job after ITV announced The Jeremy Kyle show would be axed after 19 years on air.
Speaking about their aftercare on the show after coming under fire, ITV said in a statement: “Prior to the show a comprehensive assessment is carried out by the guest welfare team on all potential contributors.
“The guest welfare team consists of four members of staff; one consultant psychotherapist and three mental health nurses.
“The guests are interviewed by guest welfare face to face at studios and prior to filming. Throughout filming the participants are supported by the guest welfare team in the studios during the recording phase of their show.
“After filming has ended all guests are seen by a member of the guest welfare team to ensure they are feeling calm and emotionally settled before any participant leaves to travel home.
“An evaluation of their needs is also carried out at this time and should they require any ongoing service regarding the problem they discussed on the show then appropriate solutions are found for them.
“This could include residential rehabilitation, counselling, anger management, family mediation, child access mediation or couple counselling for example.”
The investigation into the review of Steve Dymond’s episode will continue.
Following the cancellation of the show, its YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts have closed.
