ITV have been requested to provide further information on The Jeremy Kyle Show following the accounts of two former contestants at a Committee hearing last week.

Chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, MP Damian Collins revealed he has contacted ITV after 'concerning' evidence about the duty of care shown to participants on the daytime show.

He tweeted: "I've written today to @ITV with further questions following our recent @commonscms evidence session on The Jeremy Kyle Show. We were concerned to hear evidence about the lack of duty of care shown to participants and have requested further information."

The committee say they want want answers on ITV's duty of care, pre-checks, contributor welfare, aftercare and contributors' rights to content, as well as clarification regarding contracts, social media and claims allegedly made by Jeremy Kyle Show producers to participants about the lie detector test.

ITV have been given until September 16 to respond.
