Jeremy Kyle will make his television comeback with a brand new live show on TalkTV – three years after his ITV daytime programme was axed following the death of a guest.
The 57-year-old’s new series is titled Jeremy Kyle Live and will start on Monday October 10 airing at 7pm.
The presenter’s eponymous Jeremy Kyle Show was suspended indefinitely in May 2019 following the death of Steve Dymond, 63, one week after a programme featuring him was filmed.
According to The Sun, Jeremy said: ‘I’m so excited to be going back to live television from October 10th.
‘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.’
The tagline reveals the show will ‘see the straight-talking voice of the people take on the issues that really matter.’
Kyle returned to television screens in April for the first time in three years, as he helped launch new channel TalkTV along with Sharon Osbourne.
He made his return to TV screens at 9pm as part of a new hour-long panel debate show The Talk, where five commentators with different backgrounds and views debate current affairs issues.
Kyle and Osbourne were joined by fellow presenters Esther Krakue, Nicola Thorp and JJ Anisiobi on the panel and debated news topics such as Elon Musk buying Twitter, Prince Andrew and the ‘woke world of Disney’.
Mr Dymond is suspected to have died from suicide seven days after filming for the Jeremy Kyle Show.

He had taken a lie detector test after being accused of cheating on his ex-fiancee Jane Callaghan, of Gosport, Hampshire.
The confrontational talk show, which was hugely popular and had been a regular fixture since 2005 in the daytime TV schedule, was axed for good following calls for it to be cancelled from MPs and members of the public.
After the show was pulled, MPs launched an inquiry into reality TV – and ITV chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall said the broadcaster had been ‘looking at’ cancelling it prior to it being removed from the schedules.
Hampshire’s coroner service confirmed that an inquest into Mr Dymond’s death had been put back after an application on behalf of the deceased’s family.
A new date for proceedings has not yet been given.
Mr Dymond died of a morphine overdose and heart problem at his home in Portsmouth, a preliminary hearing was told in 2020.
At the time, coroner Jason Pegg said Jeremy Kyle had called Mr Dymond a ‘serial liar’ and said he ‘would not trust him with a chocolate button’.

The coroner said Kyle would be an interested party at the inquest because ‘he may have caused or contributed’ to Mr Dymond’s death.
In 2017, The Jeremy Kyle Show was labelled a ‘human form of bear baiting’ by a judge after a guest on the programme David Staniforth, 45, was convicted of assault for headbutting bus driver Larry Mahoney, 39, during a row on stage.
A behind-the-scenes documentary about the show on Channel 4 revealed previously unseen footage of the host describing guests as ‘thick as s***’ and berating audience members for talking during filming.
‘Death on Daytime’ heard from former workers on the ITV show who said the platform gave Kyle a ‘God complex’ and explained how they would make guests distressed to entertain viewers.
One clip showed Kyle telling off a producer for a ‘terrible’ script while another recorded him saying to a colleague: ‘I don’t understand, they’re terrible f***ing guests, you’ve done it again, they’re as thick as s***.’
In another clip, Kyle was seen trying to present a segment, and told viewers: ‘I guess this show’s called the Jeremy Kyle Show, right? But it could be called the JK Show. [Name bleeped out] is back, ladies and gentlemen.’
But he then stopped, saying: ‘No, no, no, get off, get off, it’s wrong, get off – the way you’ve written that – it doesn’t make any sense. That’s terrible. You don’t need to say here she is – take a look at this, you doughnut.’
