Jeremy Kyle is returning to TV screens as a new dad, a year after his show was axed over the death of one of its vulnerable guests.
Now the 54-year-old presenter is staging a return to the limelight later this year - and has vowed to "have his say" after "battling the unimaginable consequences" of the suicide of Steve Dymond.
His new manager Claire Powell, who also reps Peter Andre and formerly looked after Katie Price , announced he was back with a bang.
"So pleased to welcome the very talented and very real … Jeremy Kyle exclusively to @the_can_group For 14 years, Jeremy Kyle dominated Daytime TV with his hugely successful eponymous talk show," she wrote on Instagram .
"He's also proved a hit in prime time, fronting five successful series of his investigative current affairs brand, The Kyle Files.. Jeremy’s runaway UK success was the catalyst for two syndicated US series as well as stints presenting two other ITV juggernauts This Morning and Good Morning Britain.
"Jeremy first came to prominence as a Sony Award-winning radio host who changed the game at BRMB, Virgin Radio, Capital FM, talkSPORT and talkRADIO. Known for his honest, engaging opinions, Jeremy has also authored numerous columns for The Sun and a bestselling book for Hodder & Stoughton.
"A committed father and family man, he’s also a cancer survivor who has miraculously just welcomed a new son (and grandson!) into the world."
She added: "WATCH THIS SPACE!"
Jeremy is still yet to address the death of guest Steve, who took his own life days after filming for The Jeremy Kyle Show.
During his stint, Steve failed a lie detector test and was said to be crushed by the results.
He was found dead in his home by his landlady, resulting in the immediate axing of the ITV daytime show.
Jeremy refused to attend last summer's select committee as MPs probed the aftercare provided by makers of reality TV.
The host swerved the Digital, Culture, Media And Sport Committee's invitation to have his say and be held accountable for what went on behind the scenes at his show.
Many former guests alleged they'd been plied with booze and wound up by producers before getting on the infamous stage, and some spoke of how the lack of aftercare left them suicidal and ostracised by their communities.
