A talent producer who worked on The Jeremy Kyle Show before it was axed last year has died.

Natasha Reddican was employed on the controversial show from October 2014 until May 2019 when it was pulled after the death of Steven Dymond, 63, who took his own life a week after appearing on the programme.

Ms Reddican, who previously worked on ITV shows including Judge Rinder and Emergency Rooms, had since moved to a role on BBC One’s Plastic Surgery Undressed following its closure, according to her professional profile online.

Tributes for the producer have been posted online by friends, including from one fellow staff member on the ITV talk show who labelled the death ‘devastating’.

A representative for Jeremy Kyle also confirmed Ms Reddican's tragic passing but would not comment further. 

A representative for Jeremy Kyle said: 'We found out earlier today but will not be commenting any further.' 

It comes as the show’s host Jeremy Kyle announced yesterday he will be returning to television in the near future.

Kirsty Rowe, a friend of Ms Reddican who worked with her on The Jeremy Kyle Show, paid tribute to the producer this afternoon.

She said: ‘I never thought I would ever have to write something like this. We were best friends, distant friends, didn't b***** talk to each other for a while friends, but never did I see the day I would ever have to write a goodbye to you so early in your life.

‘This is one of the hardest things I think I have ever had to do and all I can hear in my head is you going; "Come on Kirst, get a glass of red wine down your neck it'll be all good in the end."

‘From day one on Jezza K we clicked, my wifey - Valentine's Day cards to each other every year, our Prezzo lunches on a Monday and the pure banter we would have was brilliant.
