In May 2019, The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed by ITV after guest Steve Dymond tragically died.

Previous guest Kane Manning told Metro: "When I heard about it, I couldn’t believe it as it has come out of nowhere. He got all of that backlash before so he thought he’d have a break, but does he think he can come back and pretend nothing has happened?

The damage has been done now and no one would ever trust what he says.

"The damage has been done now and no one would ever trust what he says."

He continued: "I mean everyone deserves a second chance but in my opinion, it is pointless, no one will listen."

Yesterday, The Can Group - Jeremy's new representatives - released a statement via its official Instagram account.

It said: "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.

It continued: "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!"

One followed responded: "Can't believe you are coming back to our screens," followed by three clapping hand emojis.
