The fallout from The Jeremy Kyle Show scandal continues to consume the majority of the front pages this morning.

The Sun and the Daily Mirror both lead with the presenter’s first pronouncements since ITV cancelled the long-running daytime TV show following the suicide of one of the participants. “Heartbroken” is the Mirror’s headline, while “Utterly devastated” is The Sun’s splash. Elsewhere, both The i and Metro lead on the news that a government probe into all reality TV shows is now set to take place.

Away from Kyle, The Daily Telegraph has wind that Theresa May’s time in No.10 may finally be drawing to a close. The paper says, regardless of whether her Brexit deal has passed, May has been told she will face a confidence vote from her own MPs on 12 June. The Daily Mail meanwhile splashes on the “New Dawn in Cancer War” - the encouraging news that a new programme of drugs will target mutation of cells to offer a good quality of life to those with the disease.

Elsewhere, The Guardian leads with the story that the UK’s probation services are set to be renationalised after a series of failed reforms by the former justice minister Chris Grayling. In business, City A.M. highlights plans by the Labour party to take the UK’s gas and energy networks back into state ownership.
