Jeremy Kyle vows to tell all on axed ITV programme as he launches talkRadio show


eremy Kyle said he remains “very proud” of his controversial ITV show as he made a return to broadcasting with a new programme on talkRadio.

He began his new drivetime show by addressing his departure directly, but told listeners he could not go into detail due to “legal reasons”.

Launching his three-hour programme, he said: “It is really weird. I have worked on television for 15 years, before that I had done a lot of radio, and I find myself today quite nervous.

“It has been a while. I was walking around this morning and I thinking, ‘How do I start something like this? What do you say?’

“Let’s start by talking about the one thing people would expect me to talk about, which is what I did on television for 14-and-a-half years, that I am very proud of. But we will know that there has been a situation, a tragic situation, and much has been written and much has been said.

“For legal reasons – this is a fact – I can’t talk about that. But let me tell you this. When I can I will and it will be on this radio station. But for now that is a closed chapter. What is important is this radio station.”

Kyle said the last two years had been “on one hand good” because of the birth of his son Oliver.

He also recalled promising his father, who died six weeks ago, that he would return to work in broadcasting.

Urging listeners to stay with the programme, he added: “Give us a chance. Rome wasn’t built in a day.”

The Jeremy Kyle Show had been a regular fixture in the TV schedule since 2005 but was axed for good after Steve Dymond, 63, died a week after an episode featuring him was filmed.
