JEREMY Kyle’s show might have been axed from ITV but the show will make a surprise appearance on Killing Eve when the series returns in June.
The Jeremy Kyle Show appears during a scene in the hit thriller when lead actress Jodie Comer can be seen watching an episode on the sofa.
The scenes will air in the second episode of the second season and will show Villanelle with bruises all over her face.
She slobs on the couch in her pyjamas to watch an episode of Jeremy Kyle’s show called: ‘Don’t blame me for the death of my dad.’
But although Villanelle is enjoying the show, Julian says: “I hate this show, horrible” before switching it off.
The show appeared on screens when Killing Eve aired in America.
But it’s not yet clear if the scenes will remain when season two of the drama becomes available to watch in full on the BBC iPlayer in June.
However, a BBC spokesperson remained tight lipped on if they’d be removing the moment, telling the Daily Mail : “We wouldn’t comment on the content of a programme before it was broadcast.”
ITV bosses axed The Jeremy Kyle Show following the death of guest Steven Dymond, 63.
Last night The Sun exclusively revealed how Jeremy was “utterly devastated” that his TV show has been axed.
He said: “Myself and the production team are all utterly devastated.”
The daytime ratings hit, axed after the suspected suicide of a participant, will now be part of a major review of reality TV announced today by MPs.
But insiders believe ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall was looking for an excuse to kill it off.
One ITV source explained: “Carolyn and some of the other senior executives always thought the Kyle show was a thorn in the side of daytime — the format was very negative and in this day and age had become a bit toxic.

“It wasn’t fluffy and wholesome like the other shows but it was hugely popular — the best rated programme across the whole day until tea time.
“It would have been extremely brave to axe it out of nowhere, so a controversy gave them a reason to do it.”

Father-of-one Steve appeared on the show to try to prove to fiancée Jane Callaghan, 48, that he had not cheated on her but failed a lie detector test.
The couple split shortly afterwards and ten days later was found dead from a suspected drug overdose in his Portsmouth bedsit.
Yesterday, ITV announced the programme was being axed.

In a statement, Dame Carolyn said: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.
“The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.
“Everyone at ITV’s thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steve Dymond.”
Jeremy told The Sun: “Myself and the production team I have worked with for the last 14 years are all utterly devastated by the recent events. Our thoughts and sympathies are with Steve’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time.”
