Jeremy Kyle will officially return to television in a new daily show after his ITV show was scrapped three years ago.
The announcement comes three years after his controversial talk show was canceled by ITV following the death of a guest who had been on the programme’s controversial lie detector feature.
Kyle will be making his TV comeback as part of TalkTV’s primetime TV schedule beginning October 10th.

Why was the Jeremy Kyle Show cancelled?
The Jeremy Kyle Show aired on ITV from July 2005 to May 2019.
The talk show, which delved into real people’s private lives, was known for its dramatic arguments and jaw-dropping revelations.
However, the program was taken off the air after the death of one of the show’s youngest contestants, who was humiliated by a lie detector test during his performance.
Steve Dymond, 63, was found dead on May 9, 2019 of a morphine overdose and a heart problem.
Dymond took a lie detector test to convince his fiancee, Jane Callaghan, that he had not been unfaithful, but was told he had failed.
The show’s polygraph element was hotly debated long before as it was not considered reliable and thus not used in court.
An inquest into Steve Dymond’s death was adjourned in May 2022 following a family bereavement.
A new hearing is not expected until October at the earliest.
At the time, coroner Jason Pegg said Jeremy Kyle called Mr Dymond a “serial liar” and said he “wouldn’t trust him with a chocolate button”.
The coroner also reported that the TV presenter would be an interested party in the inquest because “he may have caused or contributed to Mr Dymond’s death”.
