Jeremy Kyle Announces TV Comeback After Death Of Guest Saw His Show Axed

Jeremy Kyle Announces TV Comeback After Death Of Guest Saw His Show Axed

Jeremy Kyle is to return to screens in the UK less than a year after his show was cancelled following the death of a guest.

The 54-year-old presenter is to return to telly after 'battling the unimaginable consequences' that occurred after the suicide of Steve Dymond, a former guest on The Jeremy Kyle Show.

In typically combative fashion, Kyle will also 'have his say' on the matters that saw his show removed from the ITV daytime schedule.

News of Kyle's comeback was shared by his new manager Claire Powell on Instagram.


She wrote: "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.

She 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."

The statement finished: "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!"

Kyle has, to date, never spoken out about the death of Steve Dymond.

Dymond was a guest on the show, and failed a lie detector test on the show when asked if he had been unfaithful to his fiancée Jane Callaghan. The couple split up as a result and he was found dead in his flat a matter of days later.

He was said to have been crushed by the results on the show.

That lead The Jeremy Kyle Show to be immediately cancelled, and a select committee to discuss the way the show was operating.

Former guests claimed they'd been given alcohol and wound up by producers, although ITV denied these allegations. Several also said the lack of aftercare following their appearances on the programme left them feeling suicidal, as well as isolated from their communities.

Kyle did not accept the invitation from the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee to attend the meeting and have his say.
