Jeremy Kyle confirms he's returning to TV with new show

Jeremy Kyle is returning to our screens with a new show on TalkTV.

The presenter has sat in for Piers Morgan on the network, but as of 10 October he will be heading up his own live show, Jeremy Kyle Live.

We've also been given a few details on what to expect from the show.

Jeremy Kyle Live will apparently see 'the straight-talking voice of the people take on the issues that really matter'.

In a statement published by The Sun, the 57-year-old said he 'can't wait' to get going.

He said: "I'm so excited to be going back to live television from 10 October.

"Sitting in for Piers over the summer has given me a taste for what the new show will be.

"Jeremy Kyle Live will be making sense of the stories that matter; speaking the language of the British people and providing practical help as we all try and navigate our way through current times.

"I can't wait to be a part of TalkTV's amazing new primetime lineup."

Kyle hasn't had his own show since his controversial reality series The Jeremy Kyle Show was cancelled in 2019 after 14 years, following the death of guest Steve Dymond, who took his own life after failing a lie detector test.

In March, two-part documentary Jeremy Kyle: Death On Daytime saw the family of one guest brand the presenter a 'bully'.

Dominique Bishop's daughter Kristie appeared on the show in 2018 and again 2019, seeking help for her drug addiction. However, she passed away in March 2020 from an overdose after relapsing.

Dominique, 54, said Kristie was 'bullied' by Jeremy and that it was 'the most traumatic experience I ever had'.

"She opened herself up and he bullied her and he put on a show. But that was my daughter and that's really, really hard to watch now," she said.

A review from The Guardian also said the documentary was a 'difficult watch, for many reasons’, adding: "Hearing insiders talk about how it was made, and what they did, is incredibly powerful.

"If some of the details are shocking, they are not surprising; it was all there for 14 years, on screen."

"I will say only this, my friends, to you. I have maintained a consistent approach over the last three years," he said.

"I have said that I will not comment on the tragic death of Steve Dymond until the legal process is finished, and that is a position that I will maintain.

"When, and trust me there will be a time after the inquest, when it is proper for me to have my say, because there are two sides to every story. I will do it here, and I will do it to you, and that is the most important thing."
