Jeremy Kyle ‘set to make dramatic TV return following axe of his show after guest’s death’

His daytime show was cancelled last month

Jeremy Kyle is reportedly set to make a dramatic TV return following the axe of his daytime show.

The Jeremy Kyle Show was cancelled permanently in May following the death of guest Steve Dymond.

However, according to the Mirror, host Jeremy will be returning to our screens with two programmes, including a new series of The Kyle Files.

It's been said that the new series will see Jeremy tackle social issues using secret filming.

The Mirror reports that the presenter is in talks with ITV bosses exploring ideas for a second programme.

Bosses are apparently getting inspiration from the other shows that Jeremy has produced for ITV, including Jeremy Kyle's Emergency Room and High Stakes.

Jeremy Kyle's Emergency Room is a show in which the star is joined by a team of doctors who attempt to diagnose a variety of patients with a range of medical issues.

Meanwhile, game show High Stakes featured contestants trying to win big money prizes but was axed after one run.

A source told the publication: "The Kyle Files will be back as usual in early 2020 and another show is being sought for him."

Ent Daily has contacted a rep for Jeremy for comment.

Jeremy was left "devastated" last month when his daytime talk show was axed following Steve's tragic death.

Mr Dymond, 63, died around a week after reportedly failing a love-cheat lie-detector test on Kyle’s confrontational daytime programme.

His death came amid growing scrutiny over the duty of care reality TV shows have to participants following the deaths of Love Island contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.

Jeremy said in a statement to The Sun at the time: "Myself and the production team I have worked with for the last 14 years are all utterly devastated by the recent events.

"Our thoughts and sympathies are with Steve's family and friends at this incredibly sad time."

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Jeremy turned down a request to appear before MPs investigating reality TV.

After Mr Dymond's death, the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee launched an inquiry into reality TV.

Senior executives involved in the show will appear in front of MPs next week, but the star’s representatives told the committee he would not give evidence.

"We have sent an invitation to Mr Kyle through his representatives and we have received word back from them that he has declined to appear in front of the committee on Tuesday next week."
