Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee

Reality tv inquiry

Inquiry status: open - accepting written submissions

Oral evidence in progress

Scope of the inquiry

The inquiry will consider production companies’ duty of care to participants, and ask whether enough support is offered both during and after filming, and whether there is a need for further regulatory oversight in this area. The DCMS Committee’s decision to launch the inquiry into reality TV  comes after the death of a guest following filming for The Jeremy Kyle Show and the deaths of two former contestants in the reality dating show Love Island.
