The presenter has not been back on TV since 'The Jeremy Kyle Show' was canned in 2019 following the death of guest Steve Dymond, but the 56-year-old star is now returning to screens with a nightly talk show for newly-launched network TalkTV.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, he said: "I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed it until I stepped into the studio and felt the lights.

"Presenting live TV is almost like a drug, it hooks you in and I just love the format.

"I can’t wait to make my own mark on TalkTV with my own brand new show that, I guarantee, will get everyone talking ... you can expect straight talking, big opinions and star bookings, of course.

"If they’re making waves in the press, in politics, in showbiz or sport, they will be on."

'The Jeremy Kyle Show' ran from 2005 until 2019, when it was axed by ITV following the death of Steve just days after he appeared as a guest.

After the tragic news, Jeremy released a statement sending his condolences to Steve's friends and family.

It read: "Myself and the production team are all utterly devastated. Our thoughts and sympathies are with Steve’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time."

In the aftermath, Jeremy admitted he felt so low he couldn't even "leave the house or even open the curtains".

He returned to work last year, hosting a show for talkRADIO, but the new TV show will be his first small screen venture since 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

More details of the new programme are expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Jeremy follows in the footsteps of both Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne, who have both signed big-money deals to join the network.
