Jeremy Kyle’s comeback has been confirmed where he will ‘have his say’ after a year of ‘battling the unimaginable consequences’.

The presenter’s representative has taken to social media telling followers to ‘watch this space’ as she shared a photo of the star, along with a lengthy post.

‘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,’ Claire Powell began.

‘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.’

Claire went on to explain that after a tough year the 54-year-old would be returning be ‘back soon to have his say’.

‘WATCH THIS SPACE!’ she beckoned.

Jeremy has remained silent since The Jeremy Kyle Show was pulled off the air in May 2019 after guest Steve Dymond, 62, died by suicide when he failed a lie detector test on the show.

Mr. Dymond was found dead in his home just days after appearing on the show leading to its immediate cancellation, sparking a huge debate about the programme’s aftercare procedure and moral compass.

The news of Jeremy’s return comes as Conservative MP Damian Collins made calls for the host to be held accountable for the 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.’

MPs previously launched a probe into reality TV to also address the deaths of Love Island contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon, who both died by suicide.

The Jeremy Kyle Show is now no longer available to watch as all episodes have been pulled from the ITVB Hub and all clips removed from YouTube.
