Jerry Springer has officially denied that Casey Anthony and her family have been offered $1m (£623,791) to appear on his talkshow.

A spokesperson for Springer strenuously dismissed the validity of a Star magazine report, where a source claimed that Anthony, her parents and her brother would receive a substantial payment for an exclusive televised interview.

Springer's rep Gary Rosen said in a statement: "There is absolutely no truth to this story whatsoever. The Jerry Springer Show has not made any monetary offer to Casey Anthony and her family to appear on the programme. Nor will we."

Anthony was acquitted on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

She, was, however convicted on four counts of lying to investigators.

Anthony has received credit for time served behind bars during the course of her trial and is expected to be released from a Florida jail on July 17.

Earlier this week, a joke told by Jay Leno about the Anthony verdict elicited virtual silence from his Tonight Show audience.
