Jeremy Kyle has confirmed he will be returning to television in the near future, nine months after his chat show was axed.
The presenter, 54, vowed to ‘have his say’ after months away from the spotlight, in a statement posted by his new manager Claire Powell.
It comes after The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed by ITV just days after one of its guests Steven Dymond took his own life a week after appearing on the show.
