The Jeremy Kyle Show security guard ‘Big Steve’ lands new job
Jeremy Kyle Show security guard Big Steve has landed a new job. Big Steve is now working for Ru Paul and the new cast of Drag Race. The Sun newspaper reports a TV Insider saying: "Steve has been on hand to help make sure filming is going smoothly and everyone is super safe.
He's the best in the business and has had plenty of work since leaving Jeremy Kyle." The show was cancelled in 2019 following the suicide of Steve Dymond, a guest on the programme. ITV boss Kevin Lygo said of TV presenter Jeremy: "He was devastated.

Lygo said the channel was planning to work with Jeremy again, explaining: "We will just have to have a look because he is a consummate broadcaster and it would be absolutely wrong to apportion blame of the show against the presenter of it. "We don't hold him in any bad way. We will look to find another show with him but I think it is unlikely it will go in the same slot."
