Jeremy Kyle is set to return to the public eye. The Jeremy Kyle Show ran on ITV for 14 years before it was axed by the network in 2019. But now the TV star has signed up to a new management company, The Can Group, which has announced his comeback. Claire Powell, MD of the company, shared a photo of Jeremy on Instagram, along with a statement. It read: "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. 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.

Claire continued: "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. And after a year spent battling the unimaginable consequences of a devastating tragedy, Jeremy Kyle will be back soon to have his say: WATCH THIS SPACE!"
Holly and Phil's uncontrollable giggles on This Morning
Jeremy welcomed his first child with fiancée Vicky Burton at the start of the year. It's not his first turn at parenthood; the 54-year-old has four children from previous marriages to Carla Germaine and Kirsty Rowley. The doting dad announced in August that he was expecting his first child with Vicky when speaking to The Sun. "Vick and I couldn't be happier to say we're expecting our first baby together," he said. "We've told our families and everyone is delighted. It's the best possible thing that could have happened and we're excited about preparing for his or her arrival in January."
The happy news came after a particularly difficult time for the star, whose show was axed in May after a former guest on the show, Steve Dymond, took his own life.
