Jeremy Kyle returned to work to fulfil his dads final wish before he died
Jeremy Kyle has joined talkRADIO as a new radio host after his father encouraged him to return to work just six-weeks ago before his death.
The 56-year-old has made his radio debut as the former broadcaster joins to Drivetime show after two years off air.
The father-of-five first left our screens in May 2019 following the suspected “suicide” of former guest Steve Dymond who passed away of a morphine overdose while suffering from an underlying heart condition.
The construction worker failed to pass a lie detector test when questioned about his loyalty to his partner while on The Jeremy Kyle Show and passed away days before the episode was scheduled to air.
And after two years of anxiety and depression, Jeremy has finally been able to pick himself back up and get back in the studio again following the advice his father gave him just six weeks before his death.
Jeremy told his fellow presenter Mike Graham: “I lost my dad six weeks ago and he was my hero. One of the reasons that I've come back now is that he said to me, ‘go back to work’.
“Life is full of problems. There's always a solution, it’s just the bigger the problem, the longer that it takes to find an answer.
“But if you get your head down, you’ll get there. That's why I'm back. It just seems like the right time, and I've listened to talkRADIO and I just like the fact that there’s a huge amount of honesty and directness and it’s about people.
He added: “talkRADO is just the most perfect project and I'm so excited to join and be able to talk about stuff that matters to me and that’s mattered to me for a long, long time.”
talkRADIO Programme Director, Dennis Morris added: “Jeremy is a radio man with big opinion and he is the perfect new recruit for talkRADIO.
“We are the home of common sense and Jeremy will bring buckets of straight talking, no nonsense radio for our listeners.”
Jeremy will hit the studio from September 13 on talkRADIO after the doting dad has announced he is returning to his roots in radio where he started his career 25 years ago with his show on Orchard FM in Taunton, Somerset.
