Jeremy Kyle has confirmed that his controversial talk show is about to come back into our lives, as he’s “back to have his say.”
After a year of “battling the unimaginable consequences,” the presenter’s representatives have taken to social media to update followers to “watch this space” as she shared a photo of the star, which was followed by a rather lengthy post.
Claire Powell began: ‘So pleased to welcome the very talented and very real … Jeremy Kyle exclusively to @the_can_group For 14 years, Jeremy Kyle dominated Daytime TV with his hugely successful eponymous talk show,
‘He’s also proved a hit in prime time, fronting five successful series of his investigative current affairs brand, The Kyle Files. Jeremy’s runaway UK success was the catalyst for two syndicated US series as well as stints presenting two other ITV juggernauts, This Morning and Good Morning Britain.’
The post continued: ‘Jeremy first came to prominence as a Sony Award-winning radio host who changed the game at BRMB, Virgin Radio, Capital FM, talkSPORT and talkRADIO. Known for his honest, engaging opinions, Jeremy has also authored numerous columns for The Sun and a bestselling book for Hodder & Stoughton.
‘A committed father and family man, he’s also a cancer survivor who has miraculously just welcomed a new son (and grandson!) into the world.’
His representative then went on to say that the 54-year-old had had a difficult year but would be returning “back to have his say.”
She beckoned: “WATCH THIS SPACE!”
Since The Jeremy Kyle Show was pulled off the air in May 209 after guest Steve Dymond, 62, died by suicide when he failed a lie detector on the show, Jeremy has remained silent.
Just days after appearing on the show Mr Dymond was discovered dead in his home, which lead to the show’s immediate cancellation. It sparked a massive debate on the programme’s aftercare procedure and moral compass.
Conservative MP Damian Collins went as far as saying that the host should be held accountable for the tragic death.
The chair of the Digital, Culture, Media And Sport Committee wrote in The Guardian: ‘I believe we need to formalise these powers and have a clear real-world sanction for those that refuse to comply with a request to provide evidence to a parliamentary committee.’
A probe was launched into reality TV by MPs to address the deaths of Love Island contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis, who both died by suicide.
The Jeremy Kyle Show is now no longer available to watch as all episodes have been removed from the ITVB Hub, along with all clips on YouTube.
