The 56-year-old broadcaster lost 'The Jeremy Kyle Show' in 2019 after a participant’s suspected suicide, and Jeremy has admitted to being "completely devastated" by the situation.

He said: "I used to think ‘get a grip’ when some celebrities talked about those sort of problems.

"But suddenly I realised first-hand you can’t always do that. I never thought they would affect me like they did.

"That was a shock - but I’ve always said, ‘If you have a problem, admit it, and then seek the proper help’. So that’s what I did."

Jeremy sought medical help for depression and anxiety after his show was axed.

And the TV presenter now feels as though he's starting to "rebuild" his life, after years of ups and downs.

Jeremy - who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2012 - told The Sun newspaper: "I lost the show in America after two years, I got cancer, went through quite a public divorce, my mother passed away, and then I lost my job in the UK - all while still trying to be a good dad at home.

"So I accepted the help from the doctor, she was brilliant - she diagnosed me with an anxiety disorder and I’m not embarrassed or ashamed to say I accepted the treatment on offer.

"I needed it for those months. It got really bad, I’m not scared to admit that. It got me back up and out, and helped me start to rebuild things."

Jeremy also revealed that the public has rallied behind him over recent years.

He said: "I’m open and honest about who I am and the public know that. What I’ve found, now that I’ve come out from the other side, is that I’ve never had so much public support."
