Natasha Reddican Suicide
Natasha Reddican struggled to find work after the show was taken off air in June 2019.
The 31-year-old lost her job in the wake of the death of guest Steve Dymond, who passed away after appearing on the show earlier that year.
She had spent months applying for other jobs without success, Manchester Evening News reports.
Her loved ones said she suffered from depression.
Despite having a job interview arranged on February 27, she was tragically found dead in her home in Pendleton, Salford later that day.
Coroner Timothy Brennand called it “a tragic and harrowing case”.
It is unclear why that interview didn’t take place.
Her mum said she knew her daughter was ‘low’, but said: “I never thought she was that low.”
An inquest into Ms. Reddican’s death was held at Bolton Coroners’ Court on Thursday.
The coroner heard Ms. Reddican worked on The Jeremy Kyle show for eight years.
She had worked her way up from being a runner to a producer.
Her role included booking guests and helping with the running of the show.
Ms. Reddican’s mother Laraine Law said the job meant “everything” to her daughter.
The inquest heard losing her job “knocked” Natasha and led to the breakdown of the “family unit” she had built with colleagues.
Laraine Law Statement
Ms. Law said: “It was not just her job, it was her family. She just loved working.
“She was very strong in some ways, but there was a vulnerable side when certain things happened.
“When she was made redundant it really knocked her. It didn’t make her feel worthwhile.
“Natasha would drink if she was a bit down or low and that’s when we would see that vulnerable side.
“She lost her job and I knew she was low about that. She had a few bits of TV work after that and was applying for teaching jobs and other things.
“I never thought she was that low.”
The court heard Natasha’s boyfriend Mackenzie Hanifan, who also works in television, had been filming for a TV show on February 27.
He had been talking with Natasha via Whatsapp that morning, but nothing came up that concerned him.
Later that day, he noticed Ms. Reddican had stopped replying to messages and he attempted to call her up to 20 times, but she didn’t answer.
It wasn’t until he returned to their home that he found Ms. Reddican dead.
He phoned an ambulance and attempted to perform CPR while waiting for the paramedics to arrive.
Tragically, Ms. Reddican was pronounced dead by paramedics around 30 minutes later.
