The 54-year-old TV star – who hosted his eponymous talk-show between 2005 and 2019 – is poised to return to the limelight “soon”, having had his show cancelled last year after a guest committed suicide.

Claire Powell, Jeremy’s new manager, wrote in a lengthy Instagram 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.

‘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. (sic)’.

Claire has remained tight-lipped about the specific details of Jeremy’s comeback.

But she confirmed that the veteran presenter – whose fiancee, Vicky Burton, gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month – will be returning “soon”.

She wrote:

‘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. And after a year spent battling the unimaginable consequences of a devastating tragedy, Jeremy Kyle will be back soon to have his say: WATCH THIS SPACE! (sic)’.

Jeremy has withdrawn from the spotlight since May last year, after guest Steve Dymond took his own life after failing a lie detector test on the show.

The tragic incident prompted a debate about The Jeremy Kyle Show’s aftercare procedure and whether the programme was unethical.
