Jeremy Kyle has revealed he’s expecting his first child with fiancée Vicky Burton.
The daytime show host, who already has four kids from previous relationships, said he and Vicky “couldn’t be happier” to be having a baby.
Jeremy, 54, announced the news to The Sun and revealed their little one is due in January.
He told the publication: “Vick and I couldn’t be happier to say we’re expecting our first baby together. We’ve told our families and everyone is delighted.
“It’s the best possible thing that could have happened and we’re excited about preparing for his or her arrival in January.”
Jeremy is already a dad to daughters Harriet, 29, Alice, 15, and Ava, 13.
He also has son Harry, 10.
It’s been a tough few months for Jeremy after his daytime show was axed in May following the death of guest, Steve Dymond.
It was said that Mr Dymond had allegedly failed a lie detector on the show and passed away after his appearance.
The show, which ran for 14 years, has been criticised by the public and even MPs for humiliating guests with gimmicks such as lie detector tests, and for seemingly mocking the working class.
Jeremy has kept a low profile since the show’s cancellation, and released a formal statement in May stating how “devastated” he was at the news of Steve Dymond’s passing.
However, last week, it was reported that Jeremy is set to return to our screens next year.
The Sun claimed that ITV are planning a television comeback for Jeremy, and that he could be back on television as soon as early next year.
A source said: “Jeremy is a huge ratings draw and he has a great relationship with ITV, who are very keen to bring him back.
“So it was only a matter of time. An ITV team have been told ‘find a format for Jeremy’ and that is what they are working hard to do.”
